Do you want to learn a new thing about me today?
Well, I am going to share anyway….Fact about Nikki: I don’t really care for winter. I know…gasp :).
When I was single or married without young kids I found things to enjoy the bitter cold, or at least ways to distract me from it. Now, being a stay at home mom to a two-year-old and 5-month-old, I am very limited on what I can do in the winter. We live in Utah, so winters can get pretty cold and snowy. My daughter and I get a little stir crazy being home all day. I mean, there is always hanging out with other moms and their kids, but we miss the outdoors, and having a small baby makes it even harder to get outside. So, come winter, I like to bake things that remind me of summer. It helps my winter blues.
Let me introduce you to a winter version of S’mores. S’more Cobbler. It has everything you love in a S’more that can be baked in the comfort of your warm home.
I read some of the comments on the original post and noticed some people had problems with the dry cake/butter layer, so I adapted it a little and I did not have any problems with it, other than I may have eaten too much! :) But Note, the cake layer won’t have a cake-like texture. It is a cobbler so it will be drier compared to a cake.
Recipe adapted from: Created by Diane
1 cup whole milk
1 (5 oz.) package “cook and serve” chocolate pudding mix
6 whole graham crackers
1/2-3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 box chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine milk and chocolate pudding package. Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and spread evenly.
Break graham crackers in half so that you have 12 squares. Place the graham cracker squares on top of the pudding leaving space between each square.
Sprinkle on the mini chocolate chips. I added a little more because I love as much chocolatey-goodness as I can get!
Melt butter in microwave. Mix in cake mix to the melted butter until completely blended. Spread on top of the mini chocolate chips/graham crackers.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Remove and place large marshmallows on top to cover. Bake another 5 minutes then switch oven to broil. Watch closely at this point because your marshmallows will brown fast. It should only take 1-2 minutes to brown after the oven has been switched to broil.
Take out of oven and let cool a little bit.
This is best eaten warm!
