Mom’s easy Dutch oven version of the popular campout treat is so good and gooey. The hardest part is waiting for this to cool so you can devour it. Yum! —June Dress, Meridian, Idaho

  1. Prepare grill or campfire for low heat, using 16-18 charcoal briquettes or large wood chips.
  2. Line a Dutch oven with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Combine cracker crumbs and butter; press onto the bottom of the pan. Pour milk over crust and sprinkle with chocolate and butterscotch chips. Top with marshmallows.
  3. Cover Dutch oven. When briquettes or wood chips are covered with white ash, place Dutch oven directly on top of six of them. Using long-handled tongs, place remaining briquettes on pan cover.
  4. Cook for 15 minutes or until chips are melted. To check for doneness, use the tongs to carefully lift the cover. Yield: 12 servings.

"Made this for a girls youth activity at church and it was a huge hit. Everybody loved it and I had at least 5 of the leaders ask for the recipe. We will be making this a lot for our family campouts. We did add 1 c. more of marshmallows and did not use butterscotch chips instead, did 1 c. more of semi-sweet due to the reviews that it was too sweet."

"Joanfw: I just made this in the oven and it turned out fine. I halved the recipe and put it in a 9-inch round cake pan and baked it at 350 for about 13 minutes. It is an ooey, gooey, yummy treat."

"How could this be adapted to oven cooking (vs. grill cooking)? Has anyone tried?"

"To cover a few of the concerns listed before, it's clear that using a dutch oven is not necessary in the preparation of this dish. The pan pictured in the photograph is actually significantly smaller than the average sized dutch oven, and if one would take time to study the picture, one would discover that those are indeed miniature marshmallows that have puffed in the cooking process--compare them to the size of the butterscotch morsels next to them.

And for those caring cooks who worry about unwarranted negative reviews, I recommend not wasting your time responding to them--that's what they want. But do feel free to report them to the webmaster (most of them are just bored kids who create bogus accounts to stir up trouble)."

"This is almost the same recipe as Hello Dolly's or Magic Dream bars... I'm thrilled to get the directions for a dutch oven because those are one of the best cookies on the planet and now I can make them when I'm camping!!! Thanks!!!

A few years back I came across a great recipe for a s'mores dip. It is a bag of chocolate chips, a can of sweetened cond. milk - microwave it for a few minutes until it's all melted - stir it and pour it into a glass pie pan. Top with dollops of marshmallow creme - microwave for about 30 seconds - take it out and swirl it with a toothpick or knife. Serve with graham cracker sticks - it's also a great dip for strawberries or bananas - whenever I make this it is gone quicker than quick - friends of mine are always requesting it."

"The ONLY people rating ANY recipe should be ones who ACTUALLY made it. This rating is not for you to criticize photos or say how you THINK you might or might not like it. They're not asking if you WILL OR WON"T make it. This was a GREAT variation to be made at home when a campfire is unavailable. For those looking for a spin on smores. The recipe name is NOT just Smores... it is Pot of Smores meaning it's a variation of some kind. Unopened minds are ones who don't appreciate the art of cooking and diversity. Go find another site. I have been a subscriber for 15 years. You truly do not appreciate the value of this company and all the country cooks who contribue."
