This molten chocolate cake is filled with a layer of marshmallow topping and actual s'mores sandwiches. It's as simple as ever too: Just dump the ingredients into your cake pan and everything bakes together into the richest chocolate cake you'll ever encounter. Top it off with crushed peppermint candy, whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs for the ultimate holiday dessert.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put the butter in an 8-by-8-inch nonstick cake pan and place it in the oven while it preheats.
  2. When the butter is melted, remove the pan from the oven and spray the sides with cooking spray. Evenly sprinkle the cake mix over the melted butter. Using a rubber spatula, stir to combine and then press the mixture into an even layer.  
  3. Clean the rubber spatula, then spray it with cooking spray. Use the spatula to scoop the marshmallow topping on top of the cake mix and spread it in an even layer. Evenly sprinkle the pudding mix all over the topping and pour the milk on top. Stir gently with a spoon to combine the mix and milk; some marshmallow topping will rise to the surface. Top with the marshmallows and graham crackers. 
  4. Bake until the very top layer is set but the cake is still very jiggly underneath, about 50 minutes. Remove from oven and run a butter knife around the edges to loosen. Top with the chopped mints. 
  5. Scoop into bowls while still warm, dollop with whipped cream and top with additional graham cracker crumbs.
