How to Make S’mores Trifle Jars

There are so many great s’mores flavors in these little jars – including silky dark chocolate (we opted for Dove Dark Chocolate, but Hershey’s of course would work well too), graham crackers, and marshmallows of course! I LOVE dark chocolate and much prefer the rich flavor of it in s’mores. But if you’re a milk chocolate person, feel free to use your favorite milk chocolate instead.  S'mores TrifleThe toasted marshmallows really makes the flavor of these little s’mores jars! You have to be really careful as you do this (so you don’t get a gooey mess). To toast the marshmallows, you’ll want to broil them – but only for a few seconds!

Put the mini-marshmallows onto a baking sheet (having them be a little stale or cold can help too) and put them in the oven under the broiler. You canNOT walk away…in fact, don’t even look away. I didn’t even close the oven door. I stood there watching for about 10 seconds. The moment they start looking slightly  golden, take them out. Otherwise you might have a charred, gooey mess! Another tip: Let them cool before trying to move them. If you don’t, you’ll end up with that gooey mess you’re trying to avoid. Even chilled, they will retain that toasted marshmallow flavor you’re after. So now worries there.

That is the only part of making these little dessert jars that is even slightly time-consuming. There really just is not too much prep for this recipe at all. So, these little trifle jars come together in just a few minutes and they’d look so adorable at a backyard BBQ!

A twist on the traditional s’mores - these s'mores dessert trifles in a jar are a delicious treat!
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 3.9 oz box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 4-6 whole Graham Crackers
  • ¼ - ½ C chopped dark chocolate
  • ½ tub whipped topping
  • ½ small jar of Marshmallow Creme
  • ½ C mini marshmallows
  • 6 small Mason Jars
Instructions
  1. Start by prepping the ingredients - mix up the instant chocolate pudding according to package directions, finely chop up the Dove Dark Chocolate, and break up the graham crackers into pieces (as small or large as you'd like).
  2. Then, in a small bowl, combine the whipped topping & the marshmallow creme. It will probably be a little lumpy and that’s totally ok.
  3. Once those things are prepped, start filling your jars by putting a ½ -1 inch layer of the broken graham crackers.
  4. On top of the graham crackers, add about 1 Tablespoon of the chocolate pudding & sprinkle with a bit of the dark chocolate pieces.
  5. Then, add about 1 Tablespoon of the whipped marshmallow topping mixture. Repeat the layers, finally topping the jar with *toasted marshmallows and another sprinkle of the finely chopped chocolate.
Notes
For the toasted marshmallows - You just need to broil them, for only a few seconds! Put the mini-marshmallows onto a baking sheet (having them be a little stale or cold can help) and put them in the oven under the broiler. You canNOT walk away…in fact, don’t even look away. I didn’t even close the oven door. I stood there watching for about 10. The moment they start looking a little golden, take them out. Otherwise you might have a charred, gooey mess!

      Hi Kate!
      I think you could easily substitute with real whipped cream. Or, if you really wanted to change it up and serve right away, you could even try ice cream! 😉 Good luck!

      Hi Jennifer,
      With the pudding and such, yes! Though, I’m sure they could be out for a bit with no issue. We ate ours right away! 😉 So, I’m not sure!

        I wonder what substitutions I could use and make it look that amazing. My daughter’s high school band has been doing a lot of bake sales and I think these would sell pretty good. Frosting would be too rich, I think.
