How To Make No Bake S’mores Cake

Each delicious bite of no-bake s’mores cake is made with 14 layers of marshmallow meringue, chocolate ganache, and graham crackers. Such a sweet surprise!

Preparation: 1 hour
Cooking: 5 minutes
Chill Time: 13 hours
Total: 14 hours 5 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 12ozsemi-sweet or milk chocolate,finely chopped
  • cupsheavy cream
  • 6egg whites,at room temperature
  • cupsgranulated sugar
  • ¾tspcream of tartar
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract
  • 36graham crackers,(a little over 1 standard box), full-sheet

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9-inch or 8×8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the cake out (makes cutting and serving possible!). Set aside.

Chocolate Ganache:

  1. Place chopped chocolate in a bowl. Heat the cream in a small saucepan until it begins to gently simmer. (Do not let it come to a rapid boil– that’s too hot!)

  2. Pour over chocolate and let it sit for about 2 to 3 minutes to gently soften the chocolate. Slowly stir until completely combined and chocolate has melted. Cover and refrigerate as you make the meringue. Ganache can be prepared, covered, and refrigerated for up to 3 days before using.

Marshmallow Meringue:

  1. Place egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in a heatproof bowl. Set bowl over a saucepan filled with two inches of simmering water. Do not let it touch the water. Whisk constantly for about 4 minutes until sugar is dissolved and the mixture has thinned out.

  2. Add the vanilla extract, then using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat on high speed for about 5 to 6 minutes until stiff glossy peaks form. Remove 1 heaping cup (just eyeball it), cover tightly, and refrigerate for up to 2 days. This will be the topping.

To Assemble the Cake:

  1. If the marshmallow meringue and ganache are still slightly warm as you assemble the cake, that’s okay. Spread a super thin layer of marshmallow meringue on the bottom of the pan. Doesn’t need to be even or perfect; it’s just so the graham cracker base has something to stick to. Spread it slowly.

  2. Top with a layer of graham crackers. Breaking them apart might be necessary to evenly arrange them. Top with a layer of marshmallow meringue, then another layer of graham crackers, then a layer of chocolate ganache, then a layer of graham crackers, then another layer of marshmallow meringue. Repeat for a total of 6 layers of graham crackers, 4 layers of marshmallow meringue (including the thin bottom layer), and 3 layers of chocolate ganache. The top layer will be chocolate for now. Layers listed out: super-thin marshmallow meringue, graham crackers, marshmallow meringue, graham crackers, chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallow meringue, graham crackers, chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallow meringue, graham crackers, chocolate.

  3. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 12 hours and up to 2 days.

  4. Remove reserved marshmallow meringue from the refrigerator. If it seems deflated, whip it with a fork or whisk a few times.

  5. Remove cake from the refrigerator, then remove from the pan using the overhang on the sides. Peel off the parchment paper (or don’t– if it is possible torching the top without the paper lighting up!) and place onto a heat-proof serving platter or cutting board.

  6. Spread marshmallow meringue on top. Use a spoon to create peaks and swirls. Serve immediately or torch it with a kitchen torch and serve immediately or loosely cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour before torching/serving.

Recipe Notes

Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 2 days. Topping may begin to wilt.
