10-Minute Pumpkin Spice S’mores Trifles

Last Updated on

These easy s’mores trifles are perfect when you want to serve up the classic burnt, crunchy, gooey, graham cracker and melted chocolate flavors but don’t have a campfire handy. They take almost no work at all and because you eat these s’mores with a spoon you won’t get them all over your face.

Memorial day weekend is coming up and that means s’mores season is finally kicking off!

S’mores are one of America’s finest inventions, in my opinion. The combination of flavors and textures is wonderful and never gets old.

The one minor gripe I have with s’mores is their messiness, there is just about no way to eat them without bathing your hands, cheeks and chin in chocolate and marshmallow goo. How do you get around that? Very simple, you turn the s’mores into the trifles that I have here and eat them with a spoon.

How to make pumpkin spice s’mores trifles:

The trifles are made up of layers of crumbled graham crackers, chocolate layers that consist of Nutella and marshmallow cream layers. I got the idea for this recipe from this s’mores trifles recipe on My Baking Addiction, which features s’mores flavors along with fresh strawberries. For the recipe here I left out the strawberries and added the pumpkin spice (because it works great with the hazelnutty chocolate).

Start with 1/3 cup crushed graham crackers (process about 2.5 sheets in your food processor).

Crushed graham crackers in a food processor.

Next, mix 1 tablespoon melted, unsalted butter and 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin spice into the crackers.

Crushed graham crackers mixed with melted butter in a bowl.

To assemble the trifles, layer the graham crackers with Nutella (warm it up a bit in the microwave to make it easier to drizzle) and marshmallow cream (you can pipe or spoon the cream). Torch each marshmallow cream layer with a kitchen torch.

RECIPE NOTE: One thing is important when you assemble the trifle: don’t use too much Nutella or marshmallow cream because they are both very, very sweet. You want about half of each spoonful to be graham cracker crumbles. (This doesn’t come across in the photo because the marshmallow cream tends to spread to the outside of the glass and hides a lot of the graham crumbles from view).

      Thank you, Angela! These jars are great, I bought them years ago on Etsy from a very talented food photography prop stylist so I knew they would be great. :)

    Nicole you’ve done it!! Recipe wise and photo wise. YUM!!I’d much rather have this delicious dessert than one that includes burnt marshmallows in-between graham crackers and a piece of chocolate. I mean I can get messy as anyone at a picnic but this would be perfect ending at an al fresco setting. Love it!

    Umm, YEAH! I could take a bath in that luscious combination of goodness, right there! I like smores, too, but I enjoy the mess – it’s all part of it and brings back memories of camping with my folks. However, I’m all up for sophistication and this desserts certainly attains that! Chocolate hazelnut spread…. YUM! As always, beautiful photos. I just love looking through your site. Thanks for this eye candy and for a great recipe!
