Two 4-ounce good quality semi-sweet chocolate bars

One 15.85-ounce jar prepared dulce de leche (about 1 1/3 cups)

Kosher salt

Marshmallows, for dipping (optional)

Graham crackers, for dipping (optional)

Fresh fruit, such as berries, pineapple chunks and red and/or green grapes, for dipping (optional)

Cookies, shortbread or vanilla wafers, for dipping (optional)


  1. Build a medium-low campfire that has a grate for cooking. Break the chocolate bar into small pieces using the handle of a wooden spoon (or you can smack it against a picnic bench).
  2. Unwrap and add the pieces to a medium saucepan along with the dulce de leche, 1/2 cup and 1 teaspoon salt. 
  3. Place the saucepan, on the grate and over the fire, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate melts and the sauce is completely smooth, about 5 minutes. If it?s too thick, then add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency. Serve with suggested dippers, such as marshmallows, graham crackers, berries, pineapple chunks, red and/or green grapes, shortbread cookies or vanilla wafers (see Cook?s Note).
