S'mores Crumble Recipe, Dutch Oven Camping Dessert

Ask any child what their favorite part of camping and everyone of them will tell you it's the S'mores that is their favorite.  While it is our favorite camping treat too, we don't always want the sticky mess and the danger of the kids near the campfire.

For Christmas, I received a set of Dutch Oven pans and I was dying to try them out.  I was trying to think of tried and true sweets to try in the dutch oven and I came across a recipe for S'mores Pie.

I modified the recipe to use the ingredients that I had already had on hand and in fact what any good camper would have.  The recipe I came up with turned out to be more of a S'more Crumble but was a hit never the less.

What you need:  
  • Graham Crackers (about 1 1/2 cups) crumbled
  • 1/3 cup of sugar (I used Brown Sugar)
  • 6 Tablespoons of butter
  • 6 bars of Hershey Chocolate bars (chopped)
  • 2 cups of mini-marshmallows(I chopped large marshmallows)
  • 12 inch dutch oven pot (6 quart +)
You can either bring a pre-made crust or make your own using the graham crackers, butter and sugar.   

Mix and press into the pie pan.

Heat the Dutch Oven in the coals until it reaches about 350 degrees.  (9 under and 15 on top)  

When you can lift the lid and keep your hand in or just above the pot for about 5 seconds, it is approximately 350 degrees.

Add the chopped chocolate(or chips) to the pie tin and melt the chocolate for about 7 minutes.

Add the marshmallows so it completely covers the chocolate.  

I added 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and 1/4 cups of crushed graham crackers on top to make a little crunchy crust.

Check the marshmallows every 5 minutes until the marshmallows turn brown and the chocolate melts.

When the marshmallows are brown, carefully remove the tin from the pot and place in a pot of cold water(snow if available) to harden the crust.

My pie turned out more of a crumble which turned out better since although it feeds 8, as a crumble, it feeds 10.  Cut the pie into bite size pieces and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe and I will be adding more camping recipes each month as I experiment more with my dutch oven.
