4th Of July S'Mores Dip

As we gather to celebrate the birth of our nation, there’s no better way to bring friends and family together than with a delightful, festive treat. I’m thrilled to share this July 4th S’mores Dip recipe with you all! The combination of melted chocolate, gooey marshmallows, and crunchy graham crackers is a timeless favorite, and with a patriotic twist, it’s bound to be a hit at your Independence Day festivities. Let’s dive in!


  • 4 Hershey’s bars
  • 19 marshmallows
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup red, white, and blue sugar
  • Graham crackers

How to Make July 4th S’mores Dip

  1. Prepare Your Workspace: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Get out a medium-sized oven-safe dish, and make sure you have all your ingredients within arm’s reach.
  2. Melt the Chocolate: Break the Hershey’s bars into smaller pieces and spread them evenly at the bottom of your oven-safe dish. Place the dish in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the chocolate starts to melt. Keep an eye on it to ensure it doesn’t burn!
  3. Prepare the Marshmallows: While the chocolate is melting, pour the cup of water into a shallow dish. Dip each marshmallow into the water, just enough to moisten it slightly.
  4. Sugar Coat the Marshmallows: Roll the moistened marshmallows in the red, white, and blue sugar until they are evenly coated. This will give them that festive, patriotic look.
  5. Add the Marshmallows: Once the chocolate is melted, carefully remove the dish from the oven. Arrange the sugar-coated marshmallows on top of the melted chocolate in a single layer.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Return the dish to the oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until the marshmallows are golden brown and gooey. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool slightly. Serve with graham crackers for dipping, and enjoy the ooey-gooey deliciousness of your July 4th S’mores Dip!

Helpful Tips

  • Watch the Oven: Marshmallows can go from perfectly toasted to burnt in a matter of seconds, so keep a close watch during the final baking step.
  • Even Coating: Ensure the marshmallows are evenly coated in sugar to get that perfect patriotic look.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Different Chocolates: Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate. Dark chocolate, white chocolate, or even a mix can add a unique twist.
  • Alternative Dippers: Not a fan of graham crackers? Try using pretzels, fruit slices, or even cookies as dippers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this ahead of time?

It’s best enjoyed fresh, but you can prepare the chocolate and marshmallows separately and then assemble and bake just before serving.

Can I use mini marshmallows?

Absolutely! Just be sure to coat them well with the colored sugar for that festive look.

What if I don’t have red, white, and blue sugar?

You can make your own by mixing regular sugar with food coloring, or use sprinkles instead.

Storage Instructions

If you have any leftovers (though I doubt you will!), you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Reheat in the oven at a low temperature until warm and gooey again.
