Frozen Smores

When preparing frozen smores, think next-level ice cream sandwich. These frozen treats are truly good and have quickly become a staple in our freezer. We’ve all had our share of these treats warm by the fire, but have you ever tasted the fresh flavor of chocolate with marshmallows and graham crackers while cold? It’s an absolute must!

Smores Recipe Ingredients

  • Graham Crackers – You can’t have smores without the graham crackers, right? Make sure you have a packet or two, or maybe three, depending on how many of these you’re making!
  • Chocolate Pudding – Instead of the traditional chocolate bar commonly used to make smores, you’ll need chocolate pudding for this simple recipe.
  • Cream Cheese – It may sound strange because cream cheese isn’t in your average smores, but trust me when I say this is a must-have ingredient.
  • Cool Whip – Grab your favorite container of whipped topping, whether it’s Cool Whip or the generic kind.
  • Marshmallow Cream – Can’t forget the marshmallow cream, which will truly tie all the other ingredients together.

Smores Variations

Want to go beyond traditional and make something even more unique? Try some of these fun and flavorful variations of the Frozen Smores!

  • Strawberry Cream Cheese – Use strawberry-flavored cream cheese instead of traditional for hints of sweet strawberry flavoring in every bite.
  • Vanilla Pudding – Instead of chocolate, try vanilla pudding to see if you enjoy the taste even more.
  • Sprinkles – You can add sprinkles into your cream cheese or marshmallow mixture for added color and excitement.
  • Chocolate Drizzle – Drizzle some chocolate syrup over your graham crackers as a finishing touch when serving!

Tips for Preparing Frozen Smores

  • Make sure you’re using instant chocolate pudding mix for these frozen smores to turn out perfectly!
  • Before working with the Cool Whip, allow it to sit out for a bit. It’s easier to work with when it’s not frozen.
  • Place parchment paper in your pan before assembling your smores. It’s the key to keeping these goodies from sticking to the pan in the freezer.

  • 1 5.9 oz. instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 1/2 cups milk 2 % or whole
  • 8 oz tub cool whip, thawed and divided
  • 12 graham crackers broken in half and divided
  • 5 oz, cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jar marshmallow cream
  • pinch of salt


  • Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving extra parchment hanging over, so you can easily pull them out.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the pudding mix, milk, and 1/2 cup Cool Whip until smooth and creamy.
  • Layer half of the graham crackers evenly in the bottom of the baking dish. Spread pudding mix into an even layer over the top and chill.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and marshmallow creme until smooth. Fold in remaining 2 cups Cool Whip and a pinch of salt.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the chocolate layer. Place remaining graham crackers over the top. Cover with foil. Freeze 6 hours, or until firm enough to cut through.
  • Pick up the overhanging parchment to remove the frozen filling. Place on a cutting board, using the graham crackers as a guide, slice the layers into 12 squares. Trim away any excess of the frozen filling.
  • Enjoy while softened or store in the freezer in a zip top bag. If frozen, allow sandwiches to soften at room temperature 15 minutes before eating.
