Smores Cake – created by Maya

Rate this post

Hi there,

The conversation between Maya and me went like this – “What are we going to do today?” My response was I don’t know. What do you want to do? “How about we make something.” Response – ok, what do you have in mind? “A smores cake.” Response – sounds good. Where can I find the recipe? “There isn’t one. But we can make one up.”

After a lot of brainstorming, we came up with Maya’s Smore’s Cake recipe. It is easy to make and super gooey and delicious, just like a smore.

Time to put on your apron!


1 box of Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix

12 Honey gram crackers

1/2 bag of large marshmallows sliced in half

1 stick of melted butter

1/2 of a Hershey bar melted

1 9 inch springform pan


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

butter and flour the springform pan

Combine the melted butter and gram crackers in a food processor and combine to make a crust

Put the crust in the bottom of the pan

Make the brownies following the package direction

Place in the oven for 20 minutes then remove and cover the top with the marshmallows

Cook an additional 20 minutes

When cool remove from the pan

Break up the Hershey Bar melt in the microwave and drizzle it over the top of the cake

    I’m from the UK and don’t know what smores are.

    • Smores is a dessert that is usually cookes outside over a fire. It is a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow sandwiched between 2 gram crackers. It is then toasted over a fire.

    How fun this was for the both of you!

  5. Dorothy's New Vintage Kitchen – I'm a writer, cook, gardener, photographer, poet, quilter, and accomplished daydreamer. I'm also a wife, mother, grandmother, sister. cousin, aunt, and friend, no particular order on any given day. I've been a writer all my life, newspaper reporter and columnist, radio news writer, and magazine contributor, and poet and short-story writer as the spirit moves. Now, I turn my attention to my cookbook, the blog, and a cooking column "Memorable Meals," which runs in our county newspaper. Besides my family, I love dogs, cats, good coffee, chocolate, and my never-dwindling pile of books I intend to read. Our family ran a small Vermont Inn for 18 years, with our focus on local, organic ingredients. I cook from scratch, and try not to use anything that has ingredients I cannot pronounce! After many years of daily serving up local delicacies, cooking classes, and catering, we are now only open for special events, and the odd cooking class. We also host musicians and artists, having helped produce a musical festival and other musical events for nearly 20 years. Many incredible artists have found a place at our table. Wonderful experiences, we will treasure always. My family and friends are my practice subjects. With a family that includes nut, peanut, tree fruit, and vegetable allergies, gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance, vegetarians, vegans, heart conscious, and a couple of picky eaters, there has to be a few quick tricks in the book to keep everyone fed and happy! Personally, I do not eat red meat or most full-fat dairy (usually) for health reasons, making the occasional exception at Thanksgiving and Christmas or our anniversary if the duck is locally raised. I do eat fish and seafood, so I try to come up with alternatives and substitutions when available. I serve local organic eggs and cheeses to my family who can tolerate dairy (My husband recently had a heart attack, and I need to watch my own cholesterol so I am careful, but have been known to let a little piece of really good cheese accidentally fall on my plate!). I believe strongly that eating in a way that is good for our planet is also good for our bodies, and I try to educated myself about our food sources! I cook by the seasons and draw on inspiration from the strong and talented women in my family who came before me, as well as the youth in the family who look at the world with fresh eyes. Food links us all, whether sharing a meal, cooking it together, or writing about it for others to enjoy. I love taking an old recipe and giving it a modern spin, especially if I can make it a littler healthier and use foods that are kinder to the Earth and to our bodies. I believe strongly in sustainable, delicious eating of whole foods, and the wonderful flavors we have at our fingertips! And finally, I love conversing with all the talented cooks and chefs out there who dot the globe! It's a wonderful, world full of culinary pen pals, and I cherish them all! XXXOOO Dorothy
