I’ve been on a hunt for the best dessert dip recipes like this slow cooker S’mores Dip recipe! Not only has it been so hot that the mere thought of standing near an oven makes me want to start screaming but with this horrible Indiana drought, actual fires are currently illegal. What a drought it is! Grass is brown and decayed, the crops in the fields look so sad, and plants are wilting. We are all wilting under the heat! Fortunately, we live in a 100+ year old Victorian-style home and, as long as we close the doors and windows around eight in the morning, our home stays pretty cool. Gotta love that kind of workmanship! Anyway. Long story short: I love that I can have the taste of S’mores without the fire hazard.
After a bit of fiddling, I’ve figured out how to make S’mores in the slow cooker. So now you can keep your kitchen cool, spend more time with your guests, and use one less dish. Let me tell you what, I think the prospect of less dishes to have to deal with makes it a “go” right there. Don’t you agree? I am a huge, huge fan of dessert dips for exactly that reason. They take so little time to make (if you don’t count the couple of hours that they need to chill), they are frequently a one bowl kind of undertaking, and they are so simple that they typically require ingredients already found in the usual kitchen! I’m sure there’s some dessert dips out there that are using bee pollen or dried wildflowers, but those that I have found are shockingly simple for how amazing they taste!
Warm or cold, I’m a fan–although I sincerely enjoy this slow cooker s’mores dip recipe cold out of the fridge about midnight. Kid #1 likes it warm the best because it’s easier to spread and not so hard. Since it’s his birthday today (Happy Birthday kiddo!) I will let him win this time. This is from A Crafty Cook.
I accidentally reversed the chips and marshmallow cream. This recipe, however, is foolproof! Even with my big flub, I just chucked in more chocolate chips and it was fine! So don't worry--you don't need to be exact here.
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Marshmallow Cream
Combine Sweetened Condensed Milk and Chocolate Chips in mini slow cooker.
Cook on low until chips are melted--at least one hour.
Semi stir in the Marshmallow Cream.
For better presentation, don't completely combine the Marshmallow Cream, but instead, swirl it around. It looks very nice that way.
