  • 1 bag of large marshmallows

Step #1: Preheat Oven

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step #2: Captivating Cast Iron

Step #3: Divine Dipping

Bake skillet for about 7 minutes, until tops of marshmallows are golden brown. Carefully remove from oven, and place on trivet for serving. Use graham crackers as dippers for an authentic S'mores experience.

Alternative Options

We love substituting Nutella spread or dark chocolate chips for the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Another option is to mix Reese's peanut butter cups in with the chocolate chips for some peanut buttery goodness. We even like adding chopped bananas for a fresh fruit element!

Bonus: another great way to use your cast iron skillet for sweets is our Cast Iron Skillet Cookie.
