S’mores Dip

Can you ever go wrong with s’mores?  This dip brings together graham crackers, chocolate and toasted marshmallows with cream cheese; a winning union.  The cream cheese brings a bit of tang that keeps the dip from being too sweet.  It pairs nicely with Teddy Grahams, pretzel sticks, and apple slices.

Yield: 1 medium-sized dip; Prep Time: 15 minutes

  • 8 oz 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 20 toasted marshmallows*
  • 4 sheets graham cracker, crushed
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Place softened cream cheese and toasted marshmallows in a medium bowl.  Use a mixer on medium speed to mix until homogenous.
  2. Use a spatula to fold in crushed graham cracker and mini chocolate chips.
  3. Serve immediately or pull from the fridge a bit before serving so the dip can come up to room temperature.

*If you have a broiler – lay the marshmallows on a sprayed cookie sheet and then place under the broiler for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  You’ll need to watch the marshmallows carefully because they can go from toasty to burnt in a matter of seconds.

If you don’t have a broiler – it is possible to toast marshmallows in the oven (or over a grill if you’ve got one!).  Lay them on a sprayed cookie sheet and place them in your oven at the highest temperature it allows.  Cooking times will vary.
