S’more Dump Cake Recipe

Since not everybody can seem to get enough s’mores, we have a brand new Dutch Oven Dessert Recipe for you. We made it last month at a campout, where our camping friend Sarah dubbed it Death by S’mores, like a baked spin-off of Death by Chocolate.

Of course, this recipe includes the classic s’more ingredients; graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. We preferred to use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of chocolate bars.

How to Make S’mores Cobbler

This Dutch Oven Smore Recipe is a matter of layering.

  1. Prepare charcoal for the Dutch oven.
  2. Place a liner in the oven.
  3. Mix up the pudding using milk and water. Put that mixture into the bottom of the Dutch oven.
  4. Break up the graham crackers over the top of the pudding.
  5. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the crackers.
  6. Sprinkle mini marshmallows on top of the chocolate chips.
  7. Evenly pour the chocolate cake mix on the marshmallows.
  8. Put cut up pieces of butter on top of the cake mix.
  9. Cover the Dutch oven. Place 6 coals under the pot and 12-14 on top.
  10. Bake for 35-45 minutes.
  11. Add mini and regular marshmallows on top.
  12. Either replace the Dutch oven lid and put new charcoal on the lid OR use a food torch to toast the marshmallows.

While this is a s’mores dump cake, it turned out more of the consistency of cookie dough. It might be a different texture depending on your preparation method. We will test this recipe out in our oven at home soon. Whatever the consistency of it, you are just going to want to eat some more of it.
