It will be hard not to over dose on this s’mores skillet chocolate dip, because you can dip almost any thing in it from graham crackers to fruit! And with three ingredients you can’t go wrong!
It’s hard losing a friend, and yesterday I lost one. Well, he was a friend despite his small size, weird colors and affinity for getting sucked into his filter just for kicks. Yes, Struggles II, the Office Fish has died. And I’m here eating all my feelings… over a fish.
Seriously, I must need help. But this was no ordinary $3 pet store beta…
This fish was an anger ball, and he had favorites in the office. Obviously I was top of his favorites list – being the feeder, keeper, cleaner of the tank. I was that worriesome fish mom who would freak out when he would casually wrap himself around the intake of his tank filter just because he liked to relax and feel the water swoosh through his fins and gills.
And I was the transporter of him on extended weekends in a traveling cup. Yup, you saw that right – he was a traveling fish making countless trips over his three years to the Palouse for long weekend holidays, Boise for weekends of horseback riding and thunderstorms (well, I did the riding…) and to the coast to see the waves from which he came.
But yesterday, it was his last day. And he will be missed. He was given an appropriate send off fitting of a fish of his stature. (I also can’t believe I just said those words.) His final destination was the rainbow pond beyond and Struggles was sent off in a Toby Keith fashion – in a red solo cup.
Good by little friend, and see you beyond the rainbow bridge!
RIP Struggles II – Sometime 2011 – 7/29/2014.
This recipe comes from Susan Whetzel and her totally obsess-over-worthy S’mores Cookbook!! I mean, c’mon! This was the perfect thing to eat my feelings to after the loss of my fish friend. And lately Ben and I have been downing faux-s’mores like there is no tomorrow.
We make due with s’mores fixings and a creme brulee blow torch for our s’mores on our nightly desserts. But this – is face plant worthy!! Get it!
S'mores Skillet Chocolate Dip
1 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
1 can (14 oz) Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Marshmallow Fluff
Graham Crackers or Fruit for serving
Place chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until chocolate begins to melt. Stir in between heating. When chocolate chips are nearly melted, stir in condensed milk.
Pour the mixture into a skillet, and top with dollops of marshmallow fluff. Allow the fluff to melt slightly and swirl with a knife to get it to mix together slightly and create streaks. Serve immediately.
