Ingredients:For the Chocolate Mousse Layer:
1 cup dark chocolate, chopped for richness
1/2 cup milk chocolate, chopped for sweetness
2 cups heavy cream for creaminess
1/4 cup powdered sugar for a touch of sweetness
1 teaspoon vanilla extract for aromatic depth
For the Marshmallow Layer:
2 cups marshmallow fluff for pillowy goodness
1/2 cup whipped cream for lightness
1 teaspoon vanilla extract for flavor balance
For the Graham Cracker Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs for the classic crunch
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted for binding
1/4 cup granulated sugar for sweetness
Additional graham cracker crumbs for a finishing touch
Mini marshmallows for visual appeal
Chocolate shavings for an elegant flair
Step 1: Make the Chocolate Mousse Layer In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and milk chocolate together, either using a double boiler or in the microwave in short intervals. Let it cool to room temperature. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the cooled melted chocolate into the whipped cream until well combined. Set aside.
Step 2: Prepare the Marshmallow Layer In another bowl, combine marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and vanilla extract. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated, creating a light and fluffy marshmallow layer. Set aside.
Step 3: Create the Graham Cracker Crust In a bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, melted unsalted butter, and granulated sugar until the mixture resembles wet sand. Press this mixture into the base of your chosen pan or individual serving dishes to create the graham cracker crust.
Step 4: Assemble the Layers Divide the chocolate mousse mixture in half. Spread one half over the graham cracker crust evenly. Follow by spreading the marshmallow layer over the chocolate mousse. Top with the remaining chocolate mousse, creating distinct layers.
Step 5: Freeze to Set Cover the dish or dishes with plastic wrap and place them in the freezer. Allow the Frozen S’mores to freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight until fully set.
Step 6: Garnish and Serve Before serving, garnish the Frozen S’mores with additional graham cracker crumbs, mini marshmallows, and chocolate shavings for a visually stunning presentation. Slice or scoop and serve immediately.
Ensure the melted chocolate is at room temperature before folding it into the whipped cream to prevent seizing.
