Cold S’mores {No Bake & Super Easy!}

 

I first learned about cold s’mores during the summer of 2006 when my son was enrolled in the sweetest little cooking class for preschoolers (it was actually the summer before he started preschool, he wasn’t even three years old!).

Cold Smores

It was a mommy and me style cooking class where we made simple and easy recipes with our children. This recipe for cold s’mores was one of the first snacks we made and it immediately became a snack staple in our house, repeated over and over ever since.

It also became my go-to easy snack recipe to make with the kids when I started teaching cooking classes for the preschool and elementary school children a few years later.

Oh, you didn’t know that I used to teach cooking classes for kids? I did! I did! I also taught a cute preschool art program at my son’s preschool back in the day.

Art and cooking. My all-time favorites.

I loved being a stay at home mom but I also loved popping into the schools and bringing my favorite past times to the children. I had something to offer and I just loved being involved in my son’s schools (getting to know all of the kids, seeing what went on etc.).

Back to the recipe.

These cold s’mores are really easy to make and perfect for eating year round.  Tradition has it that s’mores require some sort of oven (or campfire) to melt the chocolate and marshmallows, but these cold s’mores are a no bake snack because they are created by mixing together your marshmallows and chocolate chips with whipped topping!

That’s right, there’s no melting or cooking involved. All you have to do is mix up s’mores ingredients, spoon onto your graham crackers, close them up to make sandwiches and then freeze until you are ready to eat.

You can make a bunch in advance and keep them in the freezer for the moment when a snack attack strikes.

I wrap up the cold s’mores in aluminum foil, either one or two per pack.

Over the years I have revised the cold s’mores recipe only to include healthier versions of the ingredients. It’s not about the calorie content (this snack is fairly light if you ask me), it’s about finding the ingredients which are made without the artificial stuff and preservatives.

Cold Smores Ingredients

I get my graham crackers at Trader Joe’s and discovered this truwhip at Whole Foods. And yes, the taste and texture is just as good as Cool Whip! I haven’t had an issue and my son hasn’t complained so that means it’s good.

As for the chocolate chips, I usually use Trader Joe’s semi sweet or get Ghiradelli mini semi sweet chocolate chips. You can totally use whichever kind of chocolate you prefer, even chopping up a giant dark chocolate bar <- the pound plus from TJ is my favorite! I can’t always find the “healthier” marshmallows but they do exist.

Feel free to double or triple this recipe in order to stock your freezer to the brim with these Cold s’mores.

Oh and if you are thinking about adding a spread of peanut butter to the graham cracker before closing up your Cold s’mores sandwich, go for it! I have done it and its fabulous.

    We did a group-style cooking class as part of my bridal shower (I had one here but Rob’s mom also wanted to have one in Cleveland which was much smaller) and it was alot of fun! We learned how to make homemade pasta and a chicken dish, all while drinking wine:)
    Its been years since I had smores…I can’t even remember the last time. These look really good!

    Love the idea and we need to try that truwhip! My kids did a cooking class when they were really little with friends, and only liked it because they got to bring home goodies 🙂

    I’ve never heard of cold s’mores before, but now you’ve got me curious. This would have come in handy back in the day when I used to “roast” marshmallows over the stove to make up for a lack of campfire 😆

      I loved being able to go to my son’s school, nowadays he is too old to have mommy come to class. Best feeling back then was bringing in the birthday cupcakes.

    Yum!! The cold s’mores looks great! Excited to test them out!

    I’ve taken a bunch of cooking classes and always have so much fun learning something new. Most recently, I took a bread-making class and am signed up for their croissant-making class at the end of the month!

      That’s so cool, I wonder if it will be chocolate filled croissants?! I love those

  • Miss Polkadot December 15, 2015, 9:38 am

    Cold S’mores? We don’t even have the hot version or just the ingredients (graham crakackers, frozen whipped topping) over here. But bread on a stick was really popular around campfires :).
    It’s so sweet you organized cooking and arts classes for preschoolers! Mom of the year? I think so.

    These look so good! It’s been probably two or three years since I’ve had s’mores. Ryan and I took a pizza cooking class years ago for our one year anniversary, and it was so much fun!

      That sounds like a lot of fun and great for your anniversary. So cute.

  • Jen@bubblyrunner.com December 15, 2015, 9:47 am

    My mom and I did a cooking class together in South Beach and made all kinds of yummy stuff. It was so fun! I’d love to do a baking class too. I can’t wait to try out your cold s’mores recipe–my husband and I are a huge fan of them! Workout this morning was a 4 mile run (in shorts and a tank!).

  • Angie @ Pace with Grace December 15, 2015, 9:59 am

    What a great idea and they look delicious! I like the idea of how easy they are too. I haven’t taken a cooking class in a very long time. I love to cook though so that would be right up my ally. Thanks for sharing!

    OMG These look so easy and so good! I need to make them. Maybe I should throw a party or something so I have a good excuse. Or I’ll just save them all for myself… that too haha

  • AmandaM December 15, 2015, 10:27 am

    They look great! Does the cookie kind of meld into the filling after it freezes like a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich? i.e. is it easy to eat or does it all crumble? not that it would impact the taste 🙂 I’ll be attempting this! Thanks.

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles December 15, 2015, 10:41 am

      Very easy to eat! Does not fall apart (unless you wait too long to eat it, sort of like ice cream). It’s so so good! Totally melds together, like a chipwich.

      • AmandaM December 15, 2015, 5:14 pm

        Ha! Thank you! You totally got what I was thinking – the chipwich memories of youth. Hee 🙂

  • Shannon December 15, 2015, 11:08 am

    I want to teach cooking classes for kids! How fun! These look so good. I am not a fan of roasted marshmallows so this cold idea is so much better.

      I think you should teach the classes! See what’s available in your area.

  • Emily December 21, 2015, 12:00 am

    I LOVE IT! S’mores that you can make even if you don’t have a campfire. Perfecto mundo. Pardon the expression of delight.
