How Can I Have Some More When I Haven't Had Any?


You're killing me, Smalls! So, if you don't get the title or first sentence of this post, you have never seen The Sandlot. If this is the case, stop reading this post, rent, buy, or borrow this movie, watch it, and then come back to finish reading this. I will wait...

Did you like it? It's such a great movie, isn't it?!

Anyway, here is a fantastic dessert recipe that was inspired by s'mores. Yummy stuff!

Chocolate S'mores Pudding Cake


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
8 tbsp. butter, melted
1 (15.25 oz) box chocolate cake
1 (3.9 oz) box instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow cream
3 full size Hershey chocolate bars, chopped


Combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9x13 glass pan.

Prepare the cake mix according to the box directions. Spoon the batter on top of the prepared crust. Bake at 350 degrees F for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes. Use the handle of a wooden spoon to gently poke holes all over the top of the cake. Use a napkin to keep the spoon clean in between pokes.

Whisk together the pudding mix and milk. Pour over the top of the warm cake immediately, filling the holes with the pudding. Use the back of a serving spoon to smooth and press the pudding into the holes more. Try to keep the pudding in the center of the cake instead of the sides.

Cool for 30 minutes, then refrigerate until chilled all the way through.

Stir together the Cool Whip and marshmallow cream. Spread over the cooled cake. top with the chopped Hershey bars.

Yield: 24 servings.
