23 Delicious S’more Recipes 

I remember when I used to think a S’more was just a piece of chocolate and a toasted marshmallow shoved between two graham crackers, not anymore! As long as you have the basic s’more flavors, chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker, s’more’s can be very versatile. I have seen them in everything from shakes, ice creams, cakes, and recently doughnuts, and it doesn’t stop there! As long as you include the basic flavors, the possibilities are endless. But don’t just take my word for it, see for yourself in this round-up of 23 Delicious S’mores Recipes!

Mini Brownie S’mores Bites

S'more

Mini Brownie S’mores Bites


It’s almost 80 degrees here in central Pennsylvania, this means it is perfectly acceptable to talk  S’mores or, in this case, Mini Brownie S’mores Bites. And with S’mores, comes two types of people, those who like their marshmallows burnt, and those who like them perfectly golden brown. I happen to be one of those who like my marshmallows burnt.. to a crisp.. but for the sake of this recipe, the majority rules. Which means nice little golden brown marshmallows to keep everyone happy. =)

These Mini Brownie S’more Bites are unbelievably easy to make and equally delicious. They have a soft chewy brownie crust and are topped with marshmallows that taste as if they were fresh from the campfire. And let’s not forget the slight crunch from the graham cracker and the rich burst of chocolate from the candy bar. Take these to your next picnic or get together, they will surely be a hit! I do have to set out a warning, these are highly addictive. I dare you to just eat one. I couldn’t, I had to stop myself at 6! =0

*At the bottom of this page, under the recipe, I have left a few helpful notes on making these Mini S’mores Brownie Bites. Please make sure to spray the top of your mini muffin pans with cooking spray! If you don’t do this the marshmallow may stick to the top of your pan and that would be a mess! I also want to add that I bought my mini muffin liners at Walmart and found a cuter selection over by the cake decorating supplies than by the actual cake mixes. If you try this recipe I would LOVE to hear back from you!

No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie

Peeps fluff

 

No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie 

No Bake Pineapple Fluff pie is the perfect recipe to use up all those leftover PEEPS from Easter. It’s quick, easy to make, and so delicious. I always love finding recipes like this that help to eliminate the excess candy we obtain from the holidays. I will, more than likely, be sending this pie with my husband to work tomorrow. The guys always enjoy my cooking and I won’t be tempted by the extra candy laying around the house. I happen to be one of those people who LOVE those sugary PEEPS as long as they are frozen. That’s the best way to eat them in my opinion 😉 What’s your take on those sugar peeps? Love them or hate them?

I also have to say a quick apology for having another late post. My goal is to have my recipe posts out by 10 a.m.  every Monday morning. Well, this week life happened. My sister came home early and with the Easter holiday, I just got behind. It happens. I hope this yummy recipe will make up for the fact that it’s a few hours late =)

No Bake Pineapple Fluff Pie 

Ingredients: 

1/3 Cup Milk

10 Peeps + 1 for garnish ( optional)  ( I used the yellow chicks)

1/2 Cup crushed Pinapple

1 ( 8 oz.) Tub whipped cream

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 graham Cracker Crust ( store bought, not the extra serving size)

Directions: 

In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, add milk and peeps. Cook until peeps are melted, do not bring to a boil. Once the peeps have melted take the saucepan off the heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Once cool, in a separate bowl, add pineapples, vanilla, whipped cream and melted peep mixture. Gently fold everything together. Pour this fluffy mixture into the prepared graham cracker pie crust. Refrigerate for 5 hours or overnight. Store in refridgerator.

Strawberry Crunch Pound Cake

Strawberry Pound Cake

I know I have been making a lot of cakes lately but this strawberry pound cake really takes the cake (pun intended). Due to the upcoming Easter holiday, my sister has come home from New York for the week. I am beyond thrilled! Because when my sister comes home it’s a free for all.. a free to stuff your face with all the food you want with no judgements and no talk of diets kinda all. So far we have been to the long horn for steaks and, of course, she had to one up me and get a steak AND lobster meal. Then the very next day we decided we needed to make a trip to Buffalo wild wings for a sandwich the size of our hands! And as if that meal wasn’t enough, we then decided we needed a slice of pie.. oh, and a coffee from Starbucks. I mean you can’t have pie without coffee, can you? Today she picked my son and I up for lunch at one of our favorite dinners, we did get a salad.. but I am not going to tell you everything else we got =p I am afraid that, unlike my sister, you will judge me. I mean I would probably judge me if I were you too, that’s a lot of food! But it doesn’t happen often, only a few times a year, so we take full advantage. And I am always sad to see her go. But I don’t want to think about that right now. Right now I want to focus on this lovely cake we will be indulging in for the next day or two, three if we’re lucky!

This Strawberry Crunch Cake reminds me of a strawberry scooter crunch.  It is so good! It is a moist strawberry pound cake with a cream cheese frosting and then is topped with “crunch” that is made from vanilla pudding and strawberry jello. This is the perfect summertime cake, your guests will love it!

This recipe was adapted from one of the recipes I inherited from my Nana.

Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake

Chocolate Banana Cake

Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake 

I sort of have a thing for cake box desserts such as this Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake. They are just so easy to make and usually only require a few ingredients. I especially love this recipe because it makes 2 cakes. Keep one for yourself and give one away to a friend or neighbor. This is also a great recipe to use up those last few bananas before they go bad, which is rare in our house because my son LOVES bananas. Not to mention the way these cakes make the house smell while they are cooking! No need for fancy potpourris when you are cooking this.

 Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake

Ingredients:

1 – Box Devils Food Cake Mix

1 – Box Instant Chocolate pudding (3.9 oz.)

2 – Bananas (Ripe, how they look when you make banana bread)

2 – tsp. Instant Coffee

1 – Cup Milk

4 – eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

First mash the bananas. Next, pour in the cake mix, instant pudding, instant coffee, and milk, mix well. In a separate bowl add 4 eggs and give them a few whisks; pour whisked eggs in with the rest of ingredients. Mix well. Split the batter between 2 well-greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let loaf cakes cool for about 10 minutes then turn out on a clean surface to let them finish cooling. Once cakes are completely cool glaze them.

Maple Pudding Pie + A Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe

 Maple Pudding Pie

Maple Pudding Pie plus + Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe 

This Maple Pudding Pie + A Homemade Maple Pudding Recipe will make the perfect addition to your easter dinner. This recipe for homemade Maple pudding was one of the handwritten recipes I inherited when my Nana passed away a few months ago. I made this pudding a few times and, although, delicious I thought it needed to be in a pie. So that’s what I did, of course. Although I did cheat a little. Since I was making a homemade pudding I decided to buy a store bought pie crust. And since I never made meringue, I had to search for a recipe for it. Here is the recipe I used MERINGUE RECIPE except I used 6 Tablespoons of sugar and 3 egg whites and I baked it at 325 for 25 minutes. If it does not get as brown as you would like it on the top then put it under the broiler for a few seconds.

Since I like to keep my writing short and sweet I am going to quickly give you a few pointers on making this homemade Maple Pudding ( Pie).

# 1 – If you are like me and do not have a double boiler, that is not a problem. You can easily make your own double boiler by placing a metal bowl on top of a dutch oven. When filling your dutch oven with water make sure that the metal bowl is not in the water but slightly above it.

#2 – As soon as you turn your water on to boil begin to prepare the rest of your ingredients. In the metal bowl that is sitting on top of your dutch oven ( Make shift double boiler) OR double boiler, add the milk and maple syrup. Then in a second bowl (smaller) add cornstarch, salt, egg yolks and 1/4 cup of milk. In a third bowl add your egg whites. I normally use 2 whisks and a fork when I do this. I use a whisk for the maple syrup and milk, a whisk for the cornstarch and egg yolk mixture, and a fork to mix the egg whites.

#3 – And this is the last thing I want to tell you but is also the MOST important. When adding the eggs to the hot milk and maple syrup mixture it is VERY important that you add them slowly and whisk briskly without stopping! If you fail to do this you will end up with bits of cooked egg in your pudding, and trust me, you don’t want that.

This is really an easy recipe if you follow my pointers. I hope you will give it a try and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. =)
