Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 11 oz bag milk chocolate chips I love Guittard brand
  • 10 oz bag large marshmallows
  • graham crackers or other dippers (cookies, pretzels, etc)

Instructions

Prepare

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Place a 6.5" oven-safe skillet in the oven as it preheats, so it will be hot.

Assemble

  • When oven is preheated, safely remove the skillet from the oven (use oven mitts, it will be HOT).
  • Add unsalted butter and either swirl it around to coat the bottom/insides of the skillet, or use a rubber spatula.
  • Add chocolate chips, spreading them into an even layer.
  • Top with marshmallows, adding as many as you can fit in the skillet (they will expand a bit once heated).

Bake

  • Use an oven mitt to transfer the skillet back to the oven, and bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the tops of the marshmallows are golden and toasted.
  • If you'd like more of a dark golden brown/char on your marshmallows, you can turn on the broiler after baking (keep the oven rack in the middle position though), and broil it. Keep a close eye on it though, marshmallows will burn very easily!

Serve

  • Remove skillet from oven and let sit for a few minutes before serving. This dip is extremely hot, and you don't want to burn your fingers trying to eat it!
  • Serve with your favorite dippers (graham crackers, golden oreos, pretzels, teddy grahams, etc).

Notes

  1. I've estimated this dip will feed approximately 8 people.
  2. This recipe can easily be adjusted based on any size skillet or baking dish, just use enough chocolate to fill the bottom of the pan, and enough marshmallows to cover the chocolate.

How to make this recipe without an oven-safe skillet:

  1. Use an 8x8" baking dish, and follow recipe as written.

How to make this recipe without preheating the pan:

I like using the method I've detailed in the recipe, since you only have to bake the dip once, but if you're worried about assembling this dip in a hot skillet (or are baking with kids), this is a great alternative.
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F as directed, but WITHOUT the skillet inside the oven.
  2. Melt the butter (or use vegetable oil), and brush around inside the skillet.
  3. Add chocolate and stir around, then spread into an even layer.
  4. Bake for about 4 minutes, until chocolate is melted.
  5. Remove from oven, stir the chocolate, then top with marshmallows.
  6. Return to the oven and bake another 2-4 minutes, until marshmallows are golden brown and toasted.
