Double Chocolate Pudding S'mores Cake

Recreate this molten lava cake 
that is currently on the menu at 
Disney's Frozen Ever After Dessert Party
in Epcot.

*makes 2 (9-inch) round cakes

Cake Ingredients:

1 dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1-2 tablespoons melted butter

Cake Directions:

Preheat oven to 350º.

Pour cake mix into large mixing bowl. Add water, oil, and eggs. Mix with a whisk or electric mixer until batter is creamy and there are no more large lumps. Set aside.

Brush melted butter onto the bottom and sides of both pans.

Pour half of the cake batter into each pan and spread evenly. Place into preheated oven and bake at 350º for 25-29 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Take a fork and begin poking holes into the surface of the cake (do this while still  hot). Allow the fork to tear chunks out of the center of the cake. Follow "S'mores Directions" below.


S'mores Ingredients:

12 sheets honey graham crackers
1 (3.4 oz) box cook & serve chocolate pudding (not instant)
2 cups whole or 2% milk
1 cup chocolate chips (1/2 cup per cake)
1 (10 oz) bag mini marshmallows

S'mores Directions:

Place graham crackers into a gallon-size Ziploc baggie and crush with a rolling pin until you have a course crumb texture. Set aside.

Pour the milk into a medium-size saucepan. Add in the pudding mix and whisk over medium-high heat until the pudding thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat. 

Spoon half the hot pudding over the holes of each cake. Spread using the back of the spoon. 

Now, sprinkle half a cup of chocolate chips over each cake. They will begin melting into the pudding.

Next, add the graham cracker crumbs.

Take handfuls of marshmallows and place them over the surface of each cake.

Turn on your oven's broiler (top heating element) and place both cakes on the top oven rack. Broil for 2-3 minutes until marshmallows are brown and toasted, watching carefully so they don't burn.

Remove the cakes from the oven and serve hot with a side of vanilla bean ice cream.
