Slow Cooker S’Mores Cake is a great way to make s’mores for a crowd. Top it with ice-cream for an even better treat.
S’Mores are one of my favorite treats — they always have been. The combination of melty chocolate, slightly burned marshmallow, and graham crackers takes me back to my days at Camp Welaka as a Girl Scout, where we would sit around a campfire with our sticks and see who could make their s’more the gooiest.
Unfortunately I don’t get to camp nearly as much as I would like to these days, and making s’mores tends to be more about what heat source can be found in my kitchen instead of a good campfire. Microwaves are the quick and easy way to go, but what about taking the slow way to ooey gooey goodness?
I love my Crock Pot. I usually use it for soups and stews, or for roasts and ribs, but I had never used it for a dessert — until now. I had a hankering for something s’morey, but also knew I had a bunch of errands to run in the middle of the day — and my trusty Crock Pot sat on the counter begging to be used. So I threw open some cook books to see if I could find something to fit the bill.
I found a recipe and then checked my pantry — no marshmallow fluff in stock, but I did have a lot of mini-marshmallows, and since I didn’t have graham crackers, I used some Annie’s Honey Bunny Grahams. I mixed the ingredients and put them in the cooker while I went out to run my errands. When I walked back in the door, the aroma greeted me and I have to admit, all that was missing was the smell of a good campfire to take me back to those days at Girl Scout camp. And the taste — oh so delicious! And unlike regular s’mores, you can add ice cream on top of slow cooker s’mores cake to make it even better! Just make sure you have a tall glass of milk to wash it all down with!
