It’s official… I am on sugar overload. The week after Halloween gets me every year. Between school programs and parties with friends, it seems like a never-ending stream of sugary goodness. As a mother, I try to keep the sugary snacks to a minimum at our house. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy special party treats every now and then.
Some friends of ours have a Halloween party every year for the kids. We love going and hanging out with the adults while the kids rummage through the candy and start their trades. Each family helps with the meal in some way or another. This year, I decided to bring something sweet.
I got the recipe from my friend, Anne. We work together, even though she is several states away, and I love that we can share recipes over email from across the country. On a side note, Anne and her family weathered Hurricane Sandy in Connecticut and hope to have things back to normal soon. I am just glad everyone is safe!
First things, first. In a glass pie plate, combine the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.
Place the plate in the microwave for 30-second increments on high, stirring to combine.
Once everything is melted, top with mini marshmallows and place in the oven under the broiler until the marshmallows start to brown/toast. Watch carefully as they burn very quickly.
Remember, sugar gets very hot and can easily burn you, so let the dip rest for a few minutes before eating. Once cooled, use graham crackers for dipping.
This was a great treat for all the families we spent the evening with. Thanks, Anne, for the great recipe and hopefully we will get to see each other soon.
Don’t forget—if you have a recipe you would like to see on Texas Table Top, be sure to email it to me. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
