Assembling this cake couldn’t be easier.  Just be sure to start out with a very thin layer of chocolate whipped cream on the bottom of the pan.  This will keep the crackers in place as you begin building.

The layers are simple.  Just graham crackers, hot fudge & marshmallows, plus some chocolate whipped cream to round it out!

Chocolate whipped cream is so easy to make.  You can use cocoa powder or melted chocolate, but for this recipe I’ve gone super simple with the cocoa powder.

Notes:

  • If you don’t have a kitchen torch, you can leave the top layer of marshmallows untoasted.
  • You can toast each layer of marshmallows, if desired.
  • This cake is still great the next day, but should be used within 3 days.
  • There are other methods for making chocolate whipped cream.  If you prefer another recipe, feel free to use it.
