Cast Iron Skillet S’mores

Southern Kitchen

Serves: 4 to 6

Hands On Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


2 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cups miniature marshmallows

Graham crackers, for serving


Build a campfire and place a wire rack over the top. In a large cast iron skillet, combine chocolate chips and butter and place in the center of the rack. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until chocolate has melted and butter has incorporated, 5 minutes. Place marshmallows on top and cook until marshmallows are soft and gooey, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve with graham crackers.

About the recipe

Instead of making individual s’mores around the campfire, make one large skillet “dip” and have everyone scoop their graham crackers through the communal pan. The butter helps the chocolate remain smooth while warm and the heat from the fire softens the marshmallows. If you prefer your marshmallows more toasted, you can hold a piece of burning firewood a few inches from the marshmallows to help them turn brown (or even black).

For best results, set a wire rack over the campfire so the skillet can lay flat.
