An over-the-top s’mores icebox cake complete with marshmallow whipped cream, soft chocolate ganache, graham crackers and toasted marshmallows!
I have always loved making icebox cakes. The simplicity and flavor combinations are pretty much endless when it comes to them! I had so much coming up with this one. What’s better than s’mores in the summertime? You can even make this in the cooler months to get your s’mores fix. When I was researching s’mores icebox cakes, I noticed that almost all of them use chocolate pudding for the chocolate layers. I am not usually opposed to chocolate pudding in icebox cakes, but this particular one, I wanted to get as close to an authentic s’mores flavor as I could. This only meant creating a chocolate ganache! It stays super soft, almost like a smooth frosting. It’s amazing.
The other layers consisted of the usual graham crackers, but the whipped cream layers I had to figure out how I would get the marshmallow flavor in there. I decided to add marshmallow creme to the whipped cream and fold in some mini marshmallows for fun. They get nice and soft so you barely know they are there.
The top of the s’mores icebox cake is the most fun! I crushed up some graham crackers, broke up some Hershey bars (because ya know, what is a s’mores without Hershey’s chocolate), and added some marshmallows. The marshmallows do not need to be toasted, but I wanted to go all out, so I used my kitchen torch to crisp them up a bit.
The result? An EPIC win.
