Pampered Chef "S'mores Dip!"

Howdy, Noob Nation!! Over on our Instagram this morning, we posted a photo of a little treat that Jessie whipped up at out campsite last night.  Well, we had some requests for the recipe, so here you go!  

This "S'mores Dip" is a great, artery-clogging way to get your sugar-fix while sitting beside the campfire, or even while inside your camper!  It's incredibly easy, as it preps in five minutes and cooks in just another ten minutes or so! 

Y'all enjoy!!

  • 1 pkg. (12 oz./350 g) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 34 large marshmallows
  • Assorted dippers: graham crackers, cookies, pretzels, fruit, etc.

  • Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
  • Divide the chocolate chips between two 5.5" (14-cm) Cast Iron Skillets (1 cup/250 mL of chips in each). 
  • Bake for 3–5 minutes.  
  • Remove from the oven and stir to ensure chips are fully melted.
  • Arrange 15–20 marshmallows on top of the melted chocolate in each skillet.  
  • Bake for 4–6 minutes or until marshmallows are evenly browned.
  • Serve immediately with dippers.

Yield: 6 servings

Cook's Tips: To make on a campfire, place the skillets on top of a campfire grill or grate. The dip is ready to serve when the chocolate is fully melted and the marshmallows puff and become slightly brown.

Mission 021 (Pt. 2) - SC WATERFALLS | Issaqueena Falls | Station Cove Falls

Our Labor Day weekend trip to Lake Hartwell State Park continues!  Who knew that South Carolina had waterfalls???  We sure wouldn’t have guessed it, but lo and behold, we found a couple!  Come along as we explore Stumphouse Park outside of Walhalla, SC, and see Issaqueena Falls and some local railroad history.  We then scoot over to Oconee Station State Historic Site to see Station Cove Falls, as well as hike the nature trail there and learn a little bit more about South Carolina’s early days.
