I don’t know about you, but I’d be ok with it cooling down a bit. I know we probably have another couple months before it really starts to cool down, but I’m ready. And this S’mores Icebox Cake is perfect for now and as is starts to cool down.

When I think of s’mores, I always think of camping. While I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a camper, I’ve done my share of camping.

In fact one of my very favorite camping trips was in college with some of my closest girlfriends. We all grew up together in North Carolina and went up to Boone, NC right when school ended for the summer. We hiked up this mountain that was covered in massive rocks that had a river running through it. We were totally insane.

We carried a 6 person tent, a cooler full of food for 3 or 4 days and all of our crap up this mountain, literally jumping across the water from rock to rock and passing the cooler and gear across to each other. It took hours for us to get to the top where we were camping.

But you know what? It was some of the most fun I’ve ever had with those girls. We had a great time – and one of things we enjoyed was some s’mores. Real, legit s’mores. Dirt covered sticks and all.

Fortunately, no dirt covered utensils are necessary in the making of this icebox cake.

I love the ease of icebox cakes. They are a great way to make a fun and tasty dessert. The flavors can be easily switched up and people always love them. A great thing for sharing. And you don’t have to bother with the camping.

This particular icebox cake has layers of graham crackers, marshmallow filling and chocolate pudding. All the essentials are in there.

You’ll need one full box of graham crackers. It takes one sleeve for each of the three layers.

The marshmallow layer is actually a mix of marshmallow fluff (yummy stuff!), mini marshmallows and Cool Whip. It makes a nice, light, marshmallow-y layer.

Then of course chocolate pudding. And to up the chocolate game a bit, the top of the cake has additional chocolate sauce. Then the whole thing is covered in more marshmallows and some chocolate bar pieces.

I decided to give the top of mine that toasted look by using my little blow torch. You know, the kind you’d use for creme brΓ»lΓ©e? It was actually my first time using it and I have to say, it was pretty fun to play with. And quite powerful. I had to blow the fire on the marshmallows out quite a few times. πŸ™‚

If you don’t have a blow torch, you could also put it in the oven for about 10 minutes on convection bake and let the marshmallows brown a bit.

This icebox cake is sure to be a hit with anyone who loves s’mores! We certainly loved it!

S’mores Icebox Cake

Ingredients

two 3.4 oz boxes instant chocolate pudding mix
4 cups milk
8 oz marshmallow fluff or cream
8 oz Cool Whip
5 oz mini marshmallows
14.4 oz box graham crackers
Hershey's Chocolate Sauce
Topping
Additional mini marshmallows
Hershey's bars

Instructions

1. Make the chocolate pudding by adding the milk to the mix and whisking for about 2 minutes, until pudding begins to thicken. You can make both packages in one bowl and then divide it in half, or make them in two separate bowls. Set pudding aside.
2. In a large bowl, gently stir the marshmallow fluff and Cool Whip together until well combined.
3. Stir the mini marshmallows into the Cool Whip mixture.
4. Place a single layer of graham crackers along the bottom of a 9x13 pan. You may need to break some in halves to make them fit.
5. Spread half of the marshmallow mixture on top of the graham crackers.
6. Spread half (one package) of the chocolate pudding on top of the marshmallow mixture.
7. Place another layer of graham crackers in a single layer on the top of the pudding.
8. Spread the remaining half of the marshmallow mixture on top of the graham crackers.
9. Spread remaining chocolate pudding on top of the marshmallow mixture.
10. Place another layer of graham crackers in a single layer on the top of the pudding.
11. Spread chocolate sauce over the top of the graham crackers.
12. Spread additional mini marshmallows across the top of the icebox cake and add a few Hershey's chocolate bar pieces, if desired. If you have a blow torch, you can toast the marshmallows with it.
13. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
