Dairy-Free S'mores Cake Delight











Indulge in the nostalgic flavors of a campfire classic with our Dairy-Free S'mores Cake. With 222 calories per serving, it's a guilt-free treat that combines the crunchy texture of graham crackers, the gooey sweetness of marshmallows, and the rich taste of Hershey's chocolate.


Step 1: Baking the Cake

Begin your dairy-free s'mores adventure by preheating your oven and preparing the yellow cake mix according to the package instructions. Pour the batter into two greased 8" round pans. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely on wire racks before assembling. This step lays the foundation for our s'mores cake, ensuring a moist and flavorful base.
Pro Tip: For extra moist cake, add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to the batter.

Step 2: Adding the First Layer of Magic

Once your cakes have cooled, place the bottom layer on your serving plate. Generously spread Hershey's chocolate frosting over the top. The rich and smooth frosting not only adds a decadent chocolatey layer but also acts as a delicious glue for the graham crackers. Sprinkle a layer of crushed graham crackers over the frosting, covering it completely. This step introduces the classic s'mores flavor and adds a delightful crunch.
Pro Tip: Warm the frosting for a few seconds in the microwave for easier spreading.

Step 3: The Marshmallow Crown

For the crowning glory, place marshmallows over the second cake layer and broil in the oven until golden and puffed. Keep a vigilant eye on them to avoid burning. The marshmallows will melt into a sticky, sweet layer, reminiscent of a true campfire s'more. Once slightly cooled, carefully stack this layer on top of the first. This marshmallow layer brings a gooey sweetness and a beautiful golden top, making our cake a true showstopper.
Pro Tip: Use a torch for more controlled melting if you have one.

Step 4: Final Touches

To finish, frost the sides of the stacked cake with Hershey's chocolate frosting and press Hershey's Chocolate Bars around the sides. This not only makes the cake look incredibly inviting but also infuses it with an extra layer of chocolatey goodness. If you desire the warm, gooey experience of a fresh s’more, microwave each slice for about 8 seconds before serving. This little trick softens the chocolate and marshmallows, melding all the flavors together in a warm, delicious bite.
Pro Tip: For an extra festive look, sprinkle some crushed graham crackers on top.
