Better than Anything S’more Cake

Occasionally when the colder weather hits, I like to make something in the kitchen that reminds me of summer. For whatever reason, it makes me feel that much warmer :)

This weekend was a cold and rainy one here in Utah.  For the first time, we left the house in beanies, heavy coats and lots and lots of layers.  As much as I LOVE fall clothing (its my favorite) it made me a tiny bit sad to know it meant we were really, truly, leaving summer behind. Not quite ready to say goodbye to warm weather, I headed to my kitchen and concocted this amazing cake.  Doesn’t it scream a little bit of summer to you?  S’mores are one of the highlights of my family’s summers!

Chocolate, marshmallow, graham crackers and yummy caramel make this cake out of this world, at least in my opinion.  It is so easy to whip up and is completely unique.  If you have guests over and need a little hint of summer in the upcoming cold months, give this cake a try.
