S'mores Trifle Desserts - Super SImple Summer Recipe

Our plans are all set for the long weekend. Tomorrow, we're headed to a resort with the kids for a quick getaway and some fun in the sun.  I thought I'd kick off the weekend with a family movie night tonight in the backyard. What's a family movie night without snacks? This weekend I'm serving up plenty of popcorn and a fun twist on a summer favorite; S'mores Trifle Desserts.

These S'mores Trifles were super simple to put together - and they're easy on the sugar too thanks to a few sneaky substitutes. I even managed to track down a box of gluten free graham crackers for our daughter at the local health food store {which taste absolutely the same as regular graham crackers - just in case you're wondering}. I did a little taste test while I was making them and they are absolutely delicious. All of the flavors of S'mores come together to make this one delectable dessert trifle!

Grab the simple recipe for my S'mores trifle desserts, below.

S'mores Trifle Desserts Recipe
Recipe yields: 6 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Refrigerate time: for the instant pudding - generally about 10 minutes depending on the brand
What you'll need:
  • (2) 8 oz boxes of sugar free instant chocolate pudding
  • Milk (to prepare the instant pudding)
  • Crushed graham crackers (10 graham crackers crushed using your food processor or by hand)
  • Marshmallows
  • CocoWhip Whipped topping (found in the freezer section)
How to:
Prepare instant pudding according to package instructions. When your pudding has been prepared / chilled according to package instructions, grab 6 16 oz jars or glasses to begin layering your trifle desserts. Next, spoon 1/2 cup pudding into your glass or jar. Now add a generous layer of crushed graham crackers and repeat with another layer of 1/2 cup pudding. Add a large generous dollop of CocoWhip as the last and final layer of your dessert trifle. Top with a toasted marshmallow (easily made in the oven on a baking sheet under the broiler for 2-3 minutes). Sprinkle the top of your S'mores Trifle desserts with remaining crushed graham crackers. Serve immediately.



Wishing everyone a safe holiday weekend ~ I hope that you all have a few fun filled days, spent making memories with friends and family!  Happy Fourth of July!
