Hello Readers! First off, I apologize for the 3 months of no new recipes posted! I hope you didn’t think I had quit on you! In May, my husband and I adopted twin 3 year old girls from Burundi, Africa. Needless to say, our life has been CRAZY since then as we try to adapt to life as a family of 4 with two toddlers and focus on building attachment with them. If you’d like to read more about adoption journey, you can check out our blog at takingupthecause.com. Thankfully, the girls have come a long way in 3 months and we are finally establishing a rhythm and routine. So now I can get back to sharing great recipes with y’all!
During my hiatus from posting, I missed a lot of big food holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Father’s Day. But I also just learned that last week on August 10th, we had National S’mores Day! What?! I LOVE S’mores and have several s’mores themed desserts just waiting to be posted. So even though I’m a week late, I figured I’d still share one of my favorites with you! You can never have too many s’mores desserts right?
This recipe was easy to make, and didn’t take much actual prep work, but including cooking time, you’ll want to allot probably an hour to make it. When I took this cobbler to a camping themed baby shower, it was a HUGE hit! Everyone raved over it! It’s incredibly rich and gooey (just like s’mores should be), but my favorite part is when you’d bite down on a softened chunk of graham cracker. Mmmmm! So good!
- 5 oz pkg cook & serve chocolate pudding
- 3 cups whole milk
- 6 graham crackers, broken in half to make 12 squares
- 3/4 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips
- 15 oz box chocolate cake mix (unprepared - do not include the eggs and oil)
- 1/2 cup cold butter, sliced
- 10 oz pkg miniature marshmallows
- Prepare chocolate pudding according to package directions. Allow to cool in pot for 15 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spread pudding evenly into the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Lay graham crackers evenly on top of pudding and sprinkle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
- Sprinkle dry cake mix over pudding and dot with slices of butter. Bake for 25 minutes.
- Remove from oven and stir, making sure any dry cake mix spots have be moistened.
- Sprinkle evenly with marshmallows and remaining chocolate chips. Bake an additional 5 - 8 minutes or until marshmallows are puffy and brown.
- Allow cobbler to cool 15 minutes before serving.
I am not sure if this would work with instant pudding mix because I haven't tried it. If you give it a shot, please let me know how it turns out!
