Total Time:
12 hr 5 min
5 min
12 hr

4 to 6 servings

  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • One 12-count box frosted brown sugar cinnamon toaster pastries, such as Pop-Tarts, frosting scraped off
  • Bar chocolate, for shaving
  • Special equipment: a kitchen blowtorch
  • Make the pudding according to the package instructions using the cold milk. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Set aside 1 cup for the topping, and then fold the chocolate pudding into the remaining whipped cream. Fold 1 1/2 cups of the marshmallows into this mixture.

  • To assemble the cake: On a square serving platter, put down 1 layer of 4 toaster pastries. Top with half of the chocolate-whipped cream filling. Add a second layer of pastries, followed by the remaining chocolate-whipped cream filling. Finish with a third layer of pastries. Top with the reserved 1 cup whipped cream and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup marshmallows. Using a kitchen blowtorch, lightly toast the marshmallows.

  • Place the entire cake in the refrigerator and allow to set up at least overnight. Before serving, top with chocolate shavings.

Propane Gas Torch Safety: Propane gas torches are highly flammable and should be kept away from heat, open flame, and prolonged exposure to sunlight. They should only be used in well-ventilated areas. When lighting a propane gas torch, place the torch on a flat, steady surface, facing away from you. Light the match or lighter and then open the gas valve. Light the gas jet, and blow out the match. Always turn off the burner valve to "finger tight" when finished using the torch. Children should never use a propane gas torch without adult supervision.
