S'Mores Dip is a great recipe for kids to make on their own. S'Mores were made famous by the Girl Scouts in 1927.
It's a toasted marshmallow, cooked over a campfire, and a piece of milk chocolate
between 2 graham crackers. This recipe allows you to have that delicious
flavor combination without the campfire!

1)   12 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips
2)   10 oz. bag of marshmallows (large or mini or a combination of both)
3)   Graham crackers

1)   Take a 13x9 pan and pour a 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips into it. Spread the chips out evenly.
2)   Take a the bag of marshmallows and spread them evenly over the chocolate.
3)   Put the pan in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees. You should watch it after 5 minutes to
       make sure the marshmallows don't get too brown or burned. 
4)   While the dip is baking, break the graham crackers into pieces along the marked lines. When you
       break a graham cracker into 4s, it makes the perfect size and shape for dipping into the chocolate
       and marshmallows.
5)   When the dip is done, serve with graham crackers. You take a graham cracker, dip it in, and eat it!
