Fire Pit Cooking

Graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows are a tried-and-true combination that make s’mores a classic during summer. This season, use Nutella instead of chocolate, and a cast iron skillet instead of a campfire and forked stick. You’ll be rewarded with a decadent dip that’s the new holy trinity of sweets — a reverential experience for your taste buds.

Three ingredients also make it the simplest recipe of all time — perfect for quick holiday entertaining. You won’t char your marshmallows by accident, then drop them in the coals. The perfect ratio of sweet to crunchy to gooey is already baked in. You only need to scoop up some toasted brown goodness on your graham cracker and pray your mouth can handle it.

Nutella Skillet S’mores

Yields 8 to 10 servings

1 cup of Nutella
18 large marshmallows
Graham crackers for serving

Spread the Nutella in a 9-inch oven-safe skillet in an even layer. Cover the Nutella with a single layer of the marshmallows.

Turn the broiler on in your oven to high, and place the skillet under the broiler for 1 minute, or until the marshmallows are golden-brown. Watch it the entire time.

Serve immediately in the skillet with graham crackers for dipping.
