S’mores Parfait

“Hey, you want a s’more?”  ….  “Some more of what?”

If you don’t utter that quote from the fantastic 1990’s movie The Sandlot everytime you hear the word s’more…we can no longer be friends  ..or at least close ones.

With Fall amongst us and nights starting to get a little chill in the air, we’re no longer outside by the fire quite as much.  We are however still craving our summertime favorite of melted chocolate, crunchy graham crackers and gooey marshmallow goodness.  So we have brought this family favorite into the home were it can be equally enjoyed.

I hope that after you serve up this ridiculously easy dessert…a play on the classic campfire S’more, that you too will always say that infamous quote in your head and give yourself a good chuckle.  Ill know why you’re smiling 🙂

The Starting Lineup

  • Graham crackers, broken and crumbled
  • Instant chocolate pudding (+2 cups milk)
  • Mini marshmallows 

We’ll start this easy recipe by just following your brand’s pudding directions.  Mine was to simply add the chocolate powder to 2 cups of cold milk.  Then I whisked these two ingredients together until smooth.

     After combined, I place a piece of saran wrap directly on top of the pudding.  Gently press onto the surface to ensure your dessert does not get that nasty ‘skin’ on top.  Place your now covered bowl into the refridgerator while you finish this delight!

 Next crumble up those graham crackers!  You can either place them into a ziploc bag and hit with a pan or rolling pin or just break up with your hands.  I prefer my crackers not too crumbly to give this dessert a bit of texture.

 Assemly time has come!  In a dessert dish, place down a bit of the crushed graham crackers followed by a layer of mini marshmallows.  Then scoop some of the prepared chocolate pudding on top of both and repeat these steps until you reach the top of your dish.

 When I reach the top I put down a layer of marshmallows.  Keeping with the original s’mores recipe, I like to torch the top…great extra flavor and effect!

If you do not have a small kitchen torch handy, you can easily lay a few down onto a baking tray and place under the broiler for just seconds.  Allow to cool a bit and then transfer to the top of your dessert.  *This was can be a bit messy though!  ALSO, make sure you do not stick your entire dessert under the broiler to toast the ‘mallows, UNLESS you’re using an oven and broiler proof dish.

   Now since this took you no time at all to create…you have plenty of time to enjoy!
