Fourth of July Marshmallow Dip

July 4 Dip (3)It’s been a while since I’ve posted any recipes.  This is partially because I’ve had less time to bake, but also because I literally forgot to take photos of some recipes before devouring them, and therefore had nothing to show you!

This recipe is so simple I hesitate to even call it a recipe.  But, in the spirit of the Fourth of July, I wanted to give you something!  This recipe will be a hit among children, and fortunately for the adults in the room, it is super simple to make.

The recipe below uses 1 dozen Sweet Jumbles marshmallows.  It can obviously be scaled to a larger pan with more marshmallows.  For the recipe as shown, I used a 5.5″ x 7.5″ Pyrex dish.

July 4 Dip (3)


12 Sweet Jumbles Marshmallows
Red and Blue sugar
3/4 c chocolate chips
Graham crackers or pretzels


  • Preheat oven to 450 F 
  • Line up your marshmallows in a horizontal rectangle, imagining a flag.  For a 7.5″ x 5.5″ Pyrex dish, this is four columns and three rows.  Imagine where the blue and red marshmallows should be, creating a blue upper left-hand corner and a red top and bottom stripe.
  • Using three small bowls, Put about 1″ of water in the first, 1″ of red sugar in the second, and 1″ of blue sugar in the third.
  • Dip the top (and a little down the sides too is fine) of four marshmallows in the water, blot them on a paper towel, and then dip them in the blue sugar.  Set aside to dry.  Repeat with 6 more marshmallows using the red sugar.
  • It should only take about 5 minutes to ensure that the marshmallows are dry.  While drying, put 3/4 cup of chocolate chips in your baking dish, covering the bottom of the dish completely.  Feel free to put extra chips in if you feel so inclined!
  • Arrange marshmallows on top of the dish in a flag design.
  • Just before serving, put in preheated oven for 8 minutes.
  • Serve with graham crackers or pretzels.
