EASY 4TH OF JULY SMORES DIP RECIPE

Hey hey! I'm so excited but also kinda sad, excited because my favorite holiday is coming up, 4th of July, but also a little sad because I can't believe it's approaching so quickly! I wanted to share a few fun drink recipes, and decor ideas this week to get myself and everyone else prepared to celebrate! 

I shared this recipe over on my Instagram earlier and figured I'd post it here too so ya'll had something to reference. Sidenote: I'm the messiest cook ever, and there was lots of trial and error happening while I made this. 

This dip is suppppper easy and you've probably already heard of it, but adding some candied sprinkles to it can make it feel super patriotic and bump up this classic recipe a notch for your guests! This is also something super easy you can make to take camping, out on the boat, or to the beach. I'm also not a fan of baking really in general so I like making cute and easy things that don't take me forever. This is always a hit! 



WHAT YOU NEED: 
BAG OF MARSHMALLOWS (I used JUMBO sized but you can use any size you want.)
1 6 PACK bag of Hershey Chocolate Bars
Butter or Crisco
Colored Sprinkles (I used red & blue)
Water
baking pan of your choice
parchment paper 
toothpicks or skewer stick
paper towel


Step 1- Preheat Oven to 450 degrees

Step 2- Line a cookie sheet or baking pan with parchment paper, fill a bowl with water (enough to dunk a marshmallow in.)

Step 3. Skewer a single marshmallow on your toothpick or skewer stick, dip in water, blot on paper towel, and over a bowl, sprinkle red sprinkles all over marshmallow until it's completely covered. I used 6 blue and 11 red marshmallows. Repeat this step with blue sprinkles until you have enough marshmallows. It helps to lay out your "flag" before starting the sprinkle process, I used 11 red, and 11 white marshmallows alternating between the two. 


Step 4.  Let marshmallows stand for about 10-15 minutes until dry. While they're drying, Prepare your baking sheet with crisco or butter. bottom and sides of pan should be completely covered. 

Step 5. Layer chocolate bars along bottom of the pan, I sometimes break them up to fill in empty spaces. You can get creative here and use different things like nutella if you choose!


Step 6. Create your "flag" by alternating red, white and blue marshmallows over to top the chocolate bars and bake for 7-10 minutes until white marshmallows are browned just a bit. 

ALL DONE! 

It's seriously so easy and perfect to throw together for any event! It's always a hit! 

I ended up pulling mine out of the oven too soon and messed up the top corner of the blue marshmallow, so learn from my mistakes and wait for the marshmallows to cool in the oven before removing!!

TIP: Smores dip is best served warm, so if you want to prepare ahead, I'd do steps 1-5 and wait until company arrives to "bake" it! 


So that's it babes! Super easy! if ya'll make it be sure to send me a message or drop a comment for me below! Let's be friends on Instagram too! I hope ya'll hang out for all the fun patriotic content this week! <3
