Red Velvet S’mores Dip
Dips are great. They can be sweet, savory, cheesy….basically anything your heart desires can be made into a dip. The other day my heart desired a fun s’mores dip, and after a bit of brainstorming and drooling on myself, this red velvet M&M s’mores dip was born.
To put it simply, anyone can make this. It’s easy to put together with store bought cake mix, and everything used in this recipe is easily found at the grocery store. First, we combined red velvet cake mix with some cream cheese and butter, because of course, life is better with butter and cream cheese. This also helped bring a rich fatty flavor to the sugary cake mix. We skipped the eggs entirely, which is a great tip if you want to do this with any other kind of cake mix. Just skip the eggs! We folded in M&M’s and then topped with marshmallows and more m&m’s. The final touch? A good old broil.
|4oz. cream cheese|
|3/4cup red velvet cake mix|
|3/4cup mini m&m's|
|1/2cup confectioner's sugar|
|Animal Crackers, Nilla Wafers, Cookies|
Set oven to broil with the rack on the middle shelf.
In a medium bowl, melt the butter. Add the cream cheese and beat with the butter until smooth.
Mix in cake mix. Add M&M’s and sugar.
Add milk slowly, until the texture is just thinner than a buttercream frosting.
Pour the dip into a small glass baking dish and disperse marshmallows over the top until the dip is totally covered. Sprinkle over any remaining M&M’s.
Put the dish under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, until the marshmallows lightly broadly toasted.
