S'mores Trifle Dessert in a Beach Bucket and Some More S'mores Recipes!

Summer's not over! You have to have some of those campfire favorites. S'mores! You know traditional graham cracker-chocolate-roasted marshmallow-eat-too-many-wonders. Of course here on the Sunset Coast, it's a beach campfire must have!
  Last week I hosted a wedding shower for a good friend's daughter. We did a beach theme with lots of fun ideas. To top off the lunch, we made these 'S'mores in a Beach Bucket'. I found some cute ideas for beach desserts and combined them to make these individual sized buckets of wonderful s'mores ingredients.   We got the inspiration from this brownie smores trifle

 We made the dessert in a deep 9x13 pan, then scooped it into mini beach pails for serving.  (Ok, Aunt Peg made the recipe ahead of time!) We surrounded the pails with light brown sugar 'sand' and added some gummy flip flops for fun.
Basically we had a layer of fudge brownies, chocolate pudding, some chopped up milk chocolate bars, graham crackers, then cool whip mixed with marshmallow creme topped it off. We tried to make little toasted marshmallows for the top ahead of time, but it didn't work out. Believe me, no one complained, it was so delicious and  cute in it's little blue sand bucket!
Now on to some more recipes for these summertime favorites!

How about this delicious idea? A s'mores cupcake! Chocolate cupcake with marshmallow icing, graham cracker and a chocolate drizzle....mmmmmm!!!
Maybe a s'mores ice cream sandwich is what you crave. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon...
This looks sinfully fabulous. Gotta try this! S'mores Fudge!
All right, these s'mores cookie cups sound pretty great too. Sugar cookie dough is  mixed with graham cracker crumbs. A big Hershey kiss gives it a chocolate center!
S'mores popcorn! This sounds so good .. it uses Golden Grahams cereal, marshmallows and chocolate chips!
 Just one more recipe to share before you drool all over your computer. I think this one would be scrumptious. I love chocolate and peanut butter and this has lots of both. A peanut butter s'mores bar!
 Thanks for dropping by the Sunset Coast! All these recipes sound so tasty, but have you ever just put a peppermint patty in a s'more? It's awesome.
 See you next time with more wedding shower pictures and recipes. The food was wonderful, thanks to the bride's Aunt, but more on that next time. 
Have a squishy day!

Sharing at these fine blogs.. see all the great ideas!


  1. I feel like I gained weight just looking.

    We have a fire pit and use it at least twice a week. About 2 weeks ago I succumbed to my desires and bought the ingredients for smores. Oh they were so good. But, that will have to hold me because I do not need the calories. As a kid we could eat that stuff and burn it off within an hour - no longer!

  2. I know what you mean! That little bucket of s'mores was my summer quota for s'mores this year, but so worth it!

  3. Oh my word, how fabulous is this. I would eat the whole bucket is the only problem. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
