So I have some pretty excellent baking help sometimes. My mom and Mark were in on this one and it turned out awesome! It was my dad’s birthday. We had no idea what kind of cake to make him but we had all of the ingredients for smore’s so we decided to invent a cake. It was so much fun!
Here is how to make this smore’s cake:
1 chocolate cake mix
1 1/2 cups melted chocolate chips
10 crushed graham crackers
1 Recipe marshmallow chocolate glaze (recipe below)
Bag of Small Marshmallows
1. Bake a chocolate cake. Flip out of the pan when finished baking and let cool.
2. Take your melted chocolate chips and spread over the cooled cake.
3. Sprinkle 2/3 of the crushed graham cracker over the top of the chocolate chips
4. Make the marshmallow glaze frosting stuff (below…and a total invention but it was so good!) and pour over the cake.
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
6 large marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup plus
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the powdered sugar and cocoa powder together in a bowl. Then place the marshmallows, butter, and milk in a medium-size pan over low heat. Stir until the marshmallows are melted remove the pan from the heat. Pour the powdered sugar and cocoa mixture over the marshmallow mixture. Add the vanilla and stir until the frosting is smooth and shiny….and yummy!! :)
After we had finished the above steps making the chocolate cake even more chocolaty and delicious than it started out as we added one more thing:
We stuck them under the broiler so they could get nice and toasty!
We ended up calling it the Chocolate Smore’s cake.
DELICIOUS! :) (if you like chocolate anyways…Mark helped create this but it was not his favorite because it was a chocolate dream and he doesn’t really like chocolate) My dad on the other hand loved it because he loves chocolate and doesn’t like frosting so the chocolate glaze was just what he needed!
Tips from Kj:
Add some melted marshmallows or marshmallow fluff to the melted chocolate chip layer in step #2 to make it more Smore Like
Adding caramel to step 2 is also delicious!
Instead of chocolate chips use chunks of your favorite candy bar. Sprinkle them on top too!
