S’mores Fire Pit Dip
1 Bag of Marshmallows
1 Package of Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Box of Graham Crackers
This simple S’mores dip recipe can sit cooking in an iron skillet on a cooking grate over a wood-burning fire pit. Simply place the chocolate chips on the bottom of the skillet and top off with marshmallows. Pro tip: Evenly distributing the marshmallows will help for faster cooking time. Cook the chocolate and marshmallow mixture over the flame for approximately 5 minutes. Watch to be sure the marshmallows are cooking completely. (You will notice them begin to melt and stick together). Take off the flame and enjoy it!
Instead of building a S’more, this recipe allows you to dip into the gooey mixture for a less messy indulgence!
For more fun with this S’more styled fondue, try adding some other fun flavors to the mix. Want to add a twist? Skewer up some sliced fruits and dip in the marshmallow chocolate mixture! Strawberries, mango, and peaches are our go-to fruit dippers.

Garlic Knot Cheesy Dip
Pizza dough (uncooked)
1 cup mozzarella (shredded)
½ cup parmesan (grated)
½ cup Ricotta
8oz Cream Cheese (softened)
¼ cup basil (fresh & chopped)
6 Garlic Cloves (Chopped or Minced)
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
½ cup Butter (melted)
¼ cup Parsley (Fresh and Chopped)
If your mouth isn’t watering from the name, it sure will by the end of this recipe! The garlic knot dip is a delicious appetizer dish with easy fireside prep for your guests to enjoy!
Divide your pizza dough into 12 equal-sized balls and roll the balls into logs. Take the logs of dough and tie them into knots. Coat an iron skillet with olive oil or butter, and place the knots in a ring around the perimeter of the skillet. Cover the skillet with plastic wrap and let rest for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, combine all cheese’s, basil, red pepper flakes, and three chopped garlic cloves. In a separate dish, melt butter and add parsley with remaining garlic cloves (minced). Stir well to combine.
Uncover the dough knots and scoop the cheese dip mixture into the center of the skillet. Brush the dough knots with the garlic butter and top with additional parmesan cheese. Place the skillet over a fire pit safe cooking grate for approximately 10-20 minutes. The cheese mixture will melt together and begin to bubble when cooked. You can test the dough by placing a toothpick down the middle to test for readiness. The dough will be thoroughly cooked inside and a toothpick clean when placed in the middle. Once the dough is complete, brush the dough with any remaining garlic butter and serve to your guests!
