I have been obsessed with s’mores stuff for… a while now. I was thinking it was a recent obsession but then my Facebook memories showed me this picture from four years ago. I believe those were Cedar Plank S’mores at Federal Jack’s. Now, growing up in New England they were pronounced “samoa’s” which caused me to be really confused about the equally delicious but very different Girl Scout Cookies with that name.
Traditional s’mores around a campfire and crazy restaurant s’mores desserts are an amazing treat. They don’t fit my daily goals though. When I saw Dark Chocolate Kodiak Cakes at Target one of my very first thoughts was using it to make something s’mores based. I was actually thinking donuts or muffins but single serving microwave snacks happen first. Plus, there’s nothing left to call my name from the pantry.
I’ve been having one of these as an afternoon snack or dessert at least 3 times a week for the past month. (Yes, I get on food kicks. No, this is not a sponsored post. Although if Kodiak Cakes wanted to send me something to review I would not complain.)
S’mores Mug Cake
2 TBSP Dark Chocolate Kodiak Cakes pancake mix
1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein (if you don’t use protein powder just increase the pancake mix to 1/4 cup)
1 serving dark chocolate chips (Ghirardelli are the best at 80 calories for 16 big chips)
1/3 cup mini marshmallows
1 square graham cracker, broken up
3-4 TBSP water or milk of choice
- Combine pancake mix and protein powder in a microwaveable mug or bowl.
- Mix in liquid, 1 TBSP at a time, until a batter forms.
- Stir in chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces
- Microwave for 45 seconds (note- microwaves vary)
I like to stir it up a bit before eating to better distribute the gooey marshmallow goodness. That’s up to you.
Obviously brands will vary macros but according to MyFitnessPal mine came out as 275 calories, 35.3C, 8.3F, and 17.5P. If you wanted to cut the carbs you can halve the marshmallows and/or graham cracker.
Are you a big s’mores fan? Any other New England kids get confused about Samoa’s vs S’mores?
