S’mores Icebox Cake

Summertime makes me want to break out every single no-bake recipe in my arsenal. It also makes me want to eat s’mores until I give myself a bellyache. I decided to mash my two summer favorites together into a no-bake icebox cake that is really just a massive s’more. With a little bit of peanut butter thrown in, because, why not? I discovered last summer that using a peanut butter cup in lieu of a square of chocolate infinitely improved my s’mores, which I already loved.

My grandma always made icebox cake by layering graham crackers and pudding, and sometimes topping the whole thing with Cool Whip. I took a page from her book and created s’mores layers with graham crackers, a melted milk chocolate and peanut butter combination, and marshmallow fluff. Then I layered it all again, and put an extra layer of marshmallow fluff on top for good measure, and torched the heck out of it. You just have to have the toasted marshmallow flavor!

This is a perfect no-bake summer dessert, especially if you want to serve up s’mores but don’t have a fire handy! They’re a big forkful of summer and totally irresistible!

S'mores Icebox Cake

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

Prep Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour

Layers of graham crackers, marshmallow creme and melted chocolate create a giant s'more, perfect for summer entertaining.

Ingredients:

25 sheets graham crackers (almost 1 whole box)
2½ cups milk chocolate chips, divided
½ cup creamy peanut butter, divided
16 ounces marshmallow fluff (about 3½ cups) (or homemade marshmallow creme)

Directions:

1. Line the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with graham crackers, breaking them to fit if necessary.

2. In a medium bowl, microwave half of the chocolate chips and half of the peanut butter in the microwave on 50% power, stopping to stir occasionally. This should take about 2 minutes total. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the graham crackers and spread into an even layer with an offset spatula. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until set.

3. Spread one-third of of the marshmallow fluff over the chocolate layer, then repeat with more graham crackers, the remaining chocolate chips and peanut butter, and another third of the marshmallow fluff.

4. Top with another layer of graham crackers, then the remaining marshmallow fluff. Using a kitchen torch, toast the top layer of marshmallow fluff until golden brown. (If not serving immediately, keep in the refrigerator and torch the top right before serving.) Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

    This is why I need to get myself some REAL graham crackers in Australia. Desserts like this deserve the best!

    Oh my, these looks scrumptious!

    And I finally have a use for that kitchen torch thingy I brought all those years ago. I thought I was going to torch the top of creme brulee with it…wrong!! I don’t even know how to make creme brûlée =)

    I love that you put PB in this! S’mores are so much better with some peanut butter involved!

    This is such a perfect idea! Homemade Fluff is THE BEST!

    Oh my goodness, I want this! Added it to my S’mores Pinterest board because you can’t have too many smores during the summer!

    I don’t know what I like more the no bake, the chocolate, the peanut butter, or the toasted marshmallow on top. This has to be amazing! I think I will try it out just to be sure though.

    This looks so simple and SO good! I still haven’t made an icebox cake yet, and this might just have to be the first. :)

    I don’t have a kitchen torch. Could I put it in the oven under the broiler for a minute?

      Hi Kim, ONLY if your pan is broiler-safe.

    Making this for Father’s Day!! Just a question: Do I need to refrigerate again after the second chocolate layer?

      Hi Gena, Yes, you should do the second set of layers just as you did the first.

    Looks delish! Cannot wait to try it. What is the best way to spread Marshmallow Fluff? I’m anticipating it being difficult.

      Hi Jill, I just used an offset spatula and didn’t have much trouble.

    Oh wow it’s a s’mores version of the pb cup “lasagna” I made once. Looks just as dangerous!

    Were these difficult to get out of the dish without creating a sticky mess? Any tricks to serving it without flopping it out on a dish! I love the idea and would love to try it! Your photo looks great.

      Hi Kim, Not at all. If you serve right away, they’re fine. If you’ve left it sitting out for awhile, popping it into the refrigerator for a bit will make slicing and serving easier.

    I assume the chocolate and peanut butter are supposed to be melted in the second layer also, and you’re supposed to fridge that too. Is that right? It makes the most sense to me, but that’s not clear in the instructions so I think you should clarify that!

    • Michelle on July 29th, 2014 at 9:06 pm

      Hi Avra, Yes, that is correct.
