If you put something like chocolate cake, chocolate coated rice krispies and toasted marshmallow together, what would you call it? I’d call it SCREAMING FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!
Inspired by Jamie Oliver’s chocolate celebration cake recipe in his “Jamie’s Comfort Food” cookbook, I replaced the traditional s’mores ingredient of graham crackers with rice krispies. Chocolate coated rice krispies because we have some chocoholics in the house. By the way, I know it’s hard, but you have to control yourself not to eat that thing alone!
One amazing thing about this cake is that it’s really easy to assemble. Spread the rice krispies on top of each chocolate cake layer, then sandwich the three cake layers with the marshmallow frosting, and finish it with the fun part – toasting the frosting. And without any special skills, you’ve created a showstopper! Also the cake tastes incredibly amazing thanks to the wonderful texture from the combination of the soft cake, crunchy rice krispies and the toasty marshmallow.
