For Week 11, guest blogger Katie introduces an OCD’s (or just my) dream snack: a clean way to prepare & enjoy s’mores. Check out her prolific baking and other shelter-in-place adventures in Day in the Life: Katie Shelters At Home.
Nothing says summer quite like s’mores. Sadly, the 3 or 4 camping trips I usually plan each year likely won’t happen due to SIP restrictions. But I fear not. It turns out, you can make modified s’mores from your own kitchen with this Frozen S’mores recipe (shout out to Big Sis, Lee, for sharing).
This recipe calls for a few more ingredients than normal s’mores. Since Mary likes lists, the key ingredients are:
Chocolate pudding mix
The “Hershey’s” layer is just chocolate pudding mixed with milk. While that set in the fridge, I made the marshmallow layer.
This layer involved mixing the marshmallow creme and cream cheese, and then folding in the generic Cool Whip.
When all combined, the marshmallow mixture was spread over the chocolate layer and placed in the freezer overnight.
Sandwiching the layers between graham crackers proved to be much more difficult than I thought. Babes was not impressed by the mess I made on her kitchen counter, not to mention the uneven edges and unequal size squares.
What’s important, though, is that the frozen s’mores were delicious! I really love the added touch of cream cheese in the marshmallow layer. The s’mores can be kept in the freezer, which will soften up the graham crackers and make it more like an ice cream sandwich.
While this recipe doesn’t quite replace the feeling of roasting marshmallows over an open campfire, frozen s’mores are a great alternative and can be quickly grabbed out of the freezer on a hot summer day for that marshmallowy chocolatey goodness.
