S’mores Cake

I love s’mores! Seriously, though, what is not to love?! It’s all so yummy! I cannot toast a marshmallow to save my life, though. I burn it. Every. Single. Time. I kept thinking of grilling for Father’s Day, but since I’m so bad at toasting marshmallows, I decided it would be easier to just make a cake.

I wanted the cake have all of the flavors of a s’more, so I made a chocolate-graham cracker cake and topped it with with tons of melty, toasty chocolate and marshmallow gooey goodness. Just make sure you keep a close eye on the marshmallows while they’re broiling; they can go from toasted to charcoal in a flash.
