S'mores Dip

If you live in Florida, I won't need to tell you twice but,
Summer is here, folks! Temperatures creeping up to 100 degrees, 4th of July
RIGHT around the corner (weeeee!), kids out of school, everyone and their Mom
is taking a vacation, families going camping... wait, what?!
Yeah, no. You won't catch this girl camping in Florida mid-June. You crazy?!
I have actually always wondered why camping was categorized as a Summer activity.
I mean it. is. hot. Who wants to spend a night in a tent bundled up in a sleeping bag
on what is likely the World's most uncomfortable air mattress (if you have the luxury of an
air mattress that is), let alone partake in the latter activities when it's a hundred dang degrees out?!
No, I'm a Fall-campin-kinda gal. Bryan officially asked me to be his girlfriend one night
in November on a camping trip with a bunch of our friends so I guess I just tend to
associate camping with Fall... and being "asked to be a girlfriend."
Ohhhhhh, memories! 
Anyway, back on track here, the point is, people do it! 
People still brave the heat and load up the whole fam dam and head to the nearest campground
and plop their butts there for days at a time in their 10-person tent (another thing I don't understand..
because camping is much more enjoyable when you cram everyone in one tent right?).

The one thing I *DO* crave this time of year? S'mores.
I loooove S'mores. 
Fun Fact: National S'mores Day is August 10th!

However! You don't need to find the nearest campground to enjoy this
Summer favorite... heck, you don't even need a campfire!


S'mores Dip

You Will Need:
Mini Marshmallows 
Chocolate Chips
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Graham Crackers for Dipping

Directions:
1. Combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk
2. Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until melted
3. Add mini marshmallows and pop in the oven {on broil!}
for 2 minutes. Make sure you keep an eye on how quickly
the marshmallows brown. Some ovens are quicker than others!
4. Allow to cool. 
5. Grab your graham crackers and dip em on in!

YUM.
Campground style S'mores, minus the sleeping bags. And 10-person tent.

Enjoy and happy {almost!} weekend!
