Summer is almost over but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy a last flavorful fling with our favorite summertime treat: s'mores! You don't need to stoke up a campfire to enjoy this ooey gooey chocolate dessert; simply turn on your oven and pull out your cast-iron skillet. It's as easy as 1-2-3: melt chocolate and butter in the skillet, top with broken up graham crackers followed by marshmallows, and pop under the broiler until the marshmallows are nice and toasty. Dig in with a spoon and enjoy!

This scrumptious s'mores recipe comes from the new Cast-Iron Cooking cookbook from Rachael Narins. Her new book is chock full of easy and delicious recipes for getting the most out of your cast-iron cookware. And who doesn't love one-pan cooking?!

"These s’mores are perfect for when you don’t have an open fire and a bunch of sticks. Make sure to keep an eye on the marshmallows when they are broiling; you don’t want them to get too dark."

2 cups chocolate, finely chopped (or use chocolate chips)
2 tablespoons butter
12 plain graham crackers, broken into pieces
14–20 large marshmallows

1. Turn on the broiler.

2. Place the chocolate and butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet, and melt on the stovetop over very low heat. Using a wooden spoon, stir until smooth. Do not let the chocolate scorch. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 4 minutes.

3. Arrange the graham crackers on top of the chocolate, then top with a single layer of marshmallows.

4. Place skillet under the broiler, keeping an eye on the pan until the marshmallows are browned, to taste. Serve family style or scoop out into individual bowls.
