Skillet S'mores

This recipe has been all over the internet & has been on my Pinterest board for months. My 15 year-old daughter requested this for her birthday party, in lieu of a cake. I ended up using a bag and a half of chocolate chips because my cast iron skillet is huge. We prefer these with mini marshmallows, so you don't have to cut the large ones in half. Serves about 8.

3 Tbs. butter
1 to 1 1/2 (12 oz.) bags milk chocolate chips
3 cups marshmallows (large marshmallows, cut in half or mini marshmallows)
Graham crackers, broken into squares, for dipping

Place oven rack in the center position of oven and place 8" cast iron skillet on the rack. Preheat oven to 450°F with skillet inside. Once oven is preheated, use a pot holder to remove hot skillet from the oven. Place pat of butter in the skillet and use a pot holder to hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides. Pour chocolate chips in an even layer into the bottom of the skillet. Taking care not to burn fingers on the sides of the skillet, arrange marshmallow halves over the surface of the chocolate chips, covering the chocolate completely. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until marshmallows are toasted to your preference (watch closely!). Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with graham crackers for dipping. Be careful because the dip (and skillet) will be very hot!
