Candy Cane Christmas S’mores Dip is a 3-ingredient S’mores Dip filled with candy canes (as much or as little as you want), perfect for Christmas time dipping. And no camp fire needed!
Okay. Please don’t hate on me. At the risk of looking like the biggest hypocrite in the world (besides politicians), going from a healthy salad only two days ago to this creation, this was the result of my children watching youtube videos of melted marshmallow dips and begging me with screeching voices to make it. Like, NOW.
Definitely a ‘once a year’ type situation, Christmas would be the time to pull this off. A pan full of soft, warm and melted gooey marshmallows; smooth and rich melted chocolate, and peppermint candy cane pieces: if you love mint and chocolate together, then this is for you.
As much as my sweet tooth is a crazy lunatic, I only needed 2 dips of this and it was more than enough to satisfy a craving. Blissful, straight to the point, and short but sweet.
With the amount of S’mores dips all over the internet that I have been trying to keep my children from seeing (too late), and with Christmas fast approaching, I wanted to try something different. And nothing says Christmas like Candy Canes.
First, chop candy canes (or blitz them in a magic bullet small cup for a less messy situation).
Next, melt the chocolate chips in a well seasoned cast iron skillet or an oven proof nonstick pan.
….Sprinkle the candy canes over the chocolate and top with marshmallows.
Place the pan into your oven and grill/broil in a preheated oven for about 5 minutes or until the marshmallows fluff up and turn a beautiful toasted golden colour.
Sprinkle with extra candy canes…
…and dip in your Graham crackers like your life depends on it. (For my fellow Aussies, if you can’t find Graham crackers, use Arnott’s Digestives from Coles or Woolies. They’re just as good!)
Just try not to face plant the entire pan.
And if you’re looking for something along this theme for breakfast, these S’mores Nutella Crepes are just as good. The End.

This looks amazing! I’d like to being this to a party, but I’m wondering if the marshmallows harden after a time. Did this stay soft for 30 minutes or so?
Yes they do start to harden. A suggestion would be to take this to the party prepared and bake it in an oven at the party. Would that work?
