Classic flavors of s’mores that remind you of bonfires.... chocolate, marshmallow, and graham crackers come together for a decadent sweet treat.


  • 1 pkg. (15.25 oz./ 432 g) yellow cake mix
  • 2 cups (500 mL) unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups (500 mL) crushed graham crackers (9 crackers), divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) milk chocolate chips
  • ½ cup (125 mL) heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
    Marshmallow Frosting
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) butter (1 ½ sticks), softened
  • 2 oz. (60 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (250 mL) powdered sugar
  • 1 jar (7.5 oz./213 g) marshmallow crème


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease the Round Cake Pans.
  2. Beat the cake mix, applesauce, and ½ cup (125 mL) of the graham crackers for 2 minutes with the Deluxe Stand Mixer. Pour the batter evenly into the cake pans, about 1 cup (250 mL) per pan.
  3. Bake for 23-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to rest for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely (about 1 hour).
  4. Place the chocolate chips, cream, and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and then whisk until smooth. The mixture will thicken as it cools.
  5. CREAM together the butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and marshmallow cream for 2 minutes and 50 seconds in the Deluxe Stand Mixer, or until well blended and fluffy.
  6. To assemble, top the first layer with a quarter of the ganache, then a quarter of the frosting. Sprinkle with a quarter of the remaining graham cracker crumbs over the top of the frosting. Repeat with each layer.
