Smores Autumn Chocolate Dip
This was an experiment on the BBQ that was a hit!
We created a make shift double boiler by using a 8×8 aluminum tin for the base and an aluminum pie tray to place on the top.
Pick your Favourite chocolate bar and break into squares, about 2 cups, place on bottom of pie tray
Place 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows among the chocolate
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of orange and brown Smarties
Fill the 8×8 tin with water halfway – place on BBQ
Place chocolate, marshmallow pie tray on top
We heated at 250 degrees for 12 minutes…until melted, keep checking until desired consistency
Create a tray with your favourite dipping food. We used apples, graham wafers and bananas.
