Frosty S’more Cups

Posted on

Graham Crust topped with soft chocolate, mini marshmallows and creamy whipped pudding- all frozen in a cute individual cup!  YUM!

I’m back with a recipe using my Chicago Metallic Mini Cheesecake Pan  that I just love.  My Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecakes were my first experiment using this pan and these are my second experiment.  I’m just so impressed by how easy it is to make these using this pan- love it!  These frozen treats are rich and creamy and oh-so-yummy!  I hope you love them as much as I do!


  • 18 graham cracker squares (9 sheets or about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c. whipping cream
  • 2 c. mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 c. cold milk
  • 1 box (4 servings, 3.9 oz)instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip (thawed in fridge)
  • 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips (as topping)


  • Crush graham crackers into fine crumbs.
  • Melt butter and add to graham crackers, mixing until well combined to make crust.
  • Prepare pan by placing disks into the bottom of each cup.
  • Evenly divide crust mixture into all 12 cups, saving about 1/4 cup to use as topping later. (I used a Mini Tart Shaper to press crumbs firmly into the bottom of each cup).
  • Place milk chocolate chips and whipping cream into a small bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  • Spoon chocolate into a zip top bag, cut a tip off and evenly pipe chocolate into the center of each cup, on top of the crust.

  • Divide Marshmallows among cups.
  • Mix cold milk with pudding on medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip container (the rest will be used as topping).
  • Spoon filling into a large zip top bag (and ZIP it or you might have a mess!)  Clip a corner off and pipe pudding into each cup evenly.  Try to pipe it in between the marshmallows so that the whole cup is filled.  I did have a little left over (which was really tasty straight out of the bag!)
  • Use a knife to smooth the tops level with the top of the pan.
  • Freeze for at least a couple of hours.
  • Allow the pan to warm just a bit before popping each dessert cup out.  Poke a finger up through the hole in the bottom of the pan and grab that s’mores cup by its crust.  Remove the disk from the bottom and you are ready to add topping. 
  • For topping, I just piped a little bit of the left over Cool Whip on each dessert using a decorating tip.  Then I sprinkled the remaining crust and mini chocolate chips on top.
  • Serve cold right away– or put them in a sealed container and freeze until you are ready to serve.

My thoughts:  I love these so much.  They are ok at room temperature, but serve them frozen and they are amazing!  The pudding stays so creamy and that chocolate layer in the middle…. it is a miracle I didn’t just sit down and eat them all.  Seriously.  Enjoy!!!  -r

  1. Wow.. keep experimenting, this is such a delicious looking treat!

  3. S’mores are always so perfect on a summer night, by the campfire! The only problem with these would be KEEPING them cold from the freezer to the fireside — I guess that’s what coolers filled with ice are for. ;)

    Arrrgh, now I wish it were the middle of July SO BAD! I’m bookmarking these and saving ’em til then!

    Hi! I wanted to let you know that I highlighted your recipe in one of my posts (via your link)! Looks amazing!!!

  7. These look amazing!
    I’m planning on making your S’mores cups tonight for a party treat, and I’m just wondering how many this recipe makes.

  8. that pan would’ve been perfect for these mini apple pies i made awhile back. cant wait to make the frosty s’mores. happy spring!

  9. These look AMAZING. So does the mini cheesecake pan have a hole in the bottom of each cup? What kind of disks are you talking about? Are those to cover the holes while freezing and to make them easier to get out?

    • Thanks! Yes, each cup has a hole in the bottom that you cover with a disk before putting your crust in (like the bottom of a springform pan). Then you pop the dessert out by pushing up on the disk through the bottom of the hole. There isn’t anything that comes with the pan to cover it in the freezer- you just need some Saran or foil wrap.

  10. If I dont have one of those pans can I use maybe silicone cups?

  11. Just wondering how many cups of graham cracker crumbs do you think is in this recipe? I have to use different gluten free crackers.

  12. Can you tell me where I go to find/buy one of these pans? I have never seen or heard of them before… and I really want to make these – they look wonderful!!!!

    • Sure! If you look at the very 1st part of this recipe I talk about the Chicago Metallic Mini Cheesecake Pan. If you click on those words it will take you to Amazon- to the exact item (that is where I got mine). I also saw them at a specialty baking store in my city- but they were more expensive. I’d go the online route– Amazon or elsewhere :) Good luck!

  13. I was just curious how do you think it would turn out if you made a pie out of it instead of individual cups?

  14. Where did you buy your pan at?

    • Hi Natalya- I got my pan at If you look at the recipe, the words “Chicago Metallic Mini-cheesecake pan” are a different color. You can click on those words and it will take you to Amazon- directly to the item- makes it super easy. Good luck! :)

  15. I plan to make these for camping night on the 26th! I just love the idea of this as a s’more replica since we are not allowed to have a fire where we are camping at! Thanks for the recipe! Now just to get the pan! or one similar to it!

  16. I featured this amazing recipe on my blog today! I am going to make this for my hubby tomorrow. Thank you for the inspiration!!!!


  17. So excited to try these.

  18. Saw this and instantly ordered the mini cheesecake pan, can’t wait to try this recipe and any others for the pan.

  19. Do you think I could use a premade graham cracker crust and make a pie?? I’m not much of a cook :-)

    • Yes— I think that would work great! You might need to adjust the amount of filling – or make 2 pies. If you try it let us know how it works for you!

  21. Have you used this with marshmallow fluff? I think it would be the same texture as the rest of it instead of the marshmallows.

    • I havent tried fluff- I thought about it, but I was afraid it might be too sticky and make the cups difficult to pop out….? If you try it, let us know how it works!

  22. Beautiful idea and I’d like to use your recipe for my family reunion that I am hosting soon. One question: What are the “disks” that you put in the bottom of the pan? I’m assuming you are using a muffin pan? Did I miss something? This is the first time I have viewed you on Pinterest. Thanks for much for the lovely recipe !!!

    • Hi- and welcome :) Glad you found us! The pan I used is a Chicago metallic mini-cheesecake pan (you can click on the link in the recipe for more specifics). It comes with small disks that fit into the bottom of each cup to make removal easier.

  23. I made these and turned them into frozen s’mores cupcakes by just using muffin tins. It worked perfectly and they were fantastic.

  25. i was just about to make some s’mores bars, and then i saw this… now i’m torn about which to make. perhaps both?!?

    they look absolutely amazing!

  26. Can’t wait to make these! They look awesome!

  27. I found this recipe on Pinterest and I made it using a store-bought graham cracker crust. I also used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate. I think it will be a hit at our summer get-together. Thanks for the wonderful idea! It has so many possible variations!

    • Oh I’m so glad you tried the graham cracker crust- lots of people have been wondering about that. Did you need to adjust the amounts of the filling ingredients?

  28. I wonder if marshmallow fluff would work just as well as the marshmallows.

  29. I have made these a few times and each time they are a TOTAL HIT! I do need to get one of those cool pans you have but the muffin cups have been working too. Thanks for linking my post! Your Frosty S’mores are so amazing!!!

  33. I found your site via Pinterest and I love it! I have made this as a pie version. I think if it were for company I would make the cupcakes BUT for a fabulous mid week dessert treat the pie is perfect! Thanks. I shared your site and recipe with my readers. :) and here too:

    • Thanks so much Shannon! I love that all of you are adapting this to make it what you want- and then sharing the process with everyone else. I bet it tasted wonderful as a pie!

  34. Can I place these in cupcake cups while baking? I do not have a pan like this.

    • I haven’t made them in cupcake tins, but several people have commented here that they used cupcake papers and it worked great- another option is to get a premade graham cracker crust and make it as a pie. Good luck!

  35. These look so good.I have to give them a try soon! Thanks for a great recipe!!

  37. This ones seem like a real treat but please…..could you think also about your readers from abroad?? graham cracker squares are not the same size around the world so could you please think about that next time and put a measure that can be used in any country? (“1 cup of graham crackers crumbs” would be a lot more helpful).

  38. Excellant! I used cupcake papers since I did not thave the correct pan….what a treat!

  39. You’re so welcome!

  40. Hi! I stumbled upon your site yesterday and made these for a dinner party last night and they were amazing! I *love* s’mores :) I don’t have the Chicago Metallic Mini Cheesecake Pan (though it’s now on my wish list!), so I just used a standard muffin/cupcake pan. It worked great. I didn’t use any cupcake liners, but getting them out of the pan was fairly easy. I took the tray out of the freezer about 3-5 minutes before I wanted to serve them and just slid a butter knife between the side of the dessert & the pan and gently leaned the knife towards the pan. The dessert “popped” out super easy, then I plated it and topped with the leftover coolwhip. I ended up with some extra of each of the parts so I made one “big” s’more with the leftovers in a round ceramic dish. That might be my breakfast – don’t tell :)

  41. Wow, so happy to have located you on Pinterest!! I just bought one of those cheesecake pans and wondered what else I could use it for!! Thanks for the awesome recipe. I am making these for Father’s Day get together for my family!! I know we will love them :)

  42. Hi! I just love this recipe! These are going to be the first cupcakes I’ve ever done :) What kind of whipping cream you used? Also, did you use instant pudding? Thanks! I’m planning on making these for Father’s Day…. Can’t wait!!!!

  49. I made these yesterday for Father’s Day and they were a huge hit! I made a few changes and they still came out fantastic! Instead of regular graham crackers, I used chocolate ones…after freezing and slightly thawing it was almost brownie-like on the bottom! YUM! I also substituted marshmallow fluff for the mini marshmallows and loved the consistency along with the other textures. As many of the others, I too used a muffin pan with cupcake liners and had no problems at all with getting these little delights out of the pan. My 2 year old daughter was able to help with assembly and we had a blast making this! Thank you for sharing and thanks to everyone else that posted helpful tips after the original post! :)

    • So glad they turned out for you– great ideas! I love the chocolate graham cracker idea— yum!!!!! I agree with your thank you–I’m thrilled that all of you are sharing your success stories and helping to make this recipe even better :)

    What are the Disks referred to in the recipe? Thanks, Martha

    • Hi Martha! The disks come with the mini-cheesecake pan- they fit in the bottom of each cup and can be pushed up at the end. It makes them a little like a spring form pan with a removable bottom that way. If you want a link to Amazon to get the pan just click on the words “Chicago Metallic Spring Form Pan” in the recipe– or if you want to make them in muffin tins with cupcake liners that works too– then you don’t need to worry about disks at all! Enjoy!

  54. these were fun to make and tasted delicious, but the marshmallows froze making them very awkward to eat, with a fork anyway. next time i’d make some kind of a marshmallow sauce to top them with just before eating.

  55. Saw this and had to try them right away. I used a regular cupcake pan and they popped right out! I had to fight my kids for these…..I see lots of these in our future. I’m already planning on making another batch for July 4th celebration and plan on sprinkling some red, white, blue sprinkles on top! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

    These are fabulous!! Only had semi -sweet chocolate chips and only had a plain ole cupcake pan and I sprayed it with cooking spray and the were soo easy to pop out! Be sure to let them freeze for at least two hours before devouring :) Thanks for the recipe

  63. I made it in a massive pan (think 24″ x 36″) to serve at our family reunion. Even after soaking the base in hot water, we had a REALLY hard time cutting through the marshmallow and chocolate layers and I ended up covered in pudding! It was also difficult to eat because the layers separated. No one could eat it with a fork, but it was too messy for hands. What a mess!! You should have seen the kids! haha The individual cups would be much more doable….especially mini cups fot the smallest kids, but a heckuva lot more work for that many people. If I do it in a pan again, I’ll play with the consistency of the chocolate & mallow layers. Maybe reduce the thickness of the pudding layer and do marshmallow fluff with cream cheese layer. Just thinking… Anyway, everyone loved it and thought it was a GREAT idea especially since our area is under fire restrictions and the kids had been sad they couldn’t have S’mores. Thanks for the idea! With a little tweaking, I’ll try it to feed a crowd again and my own kids are looking forward to another attempt in cups! :)

  81. What is the disk you put in the bottom of each cup ?

    • The disks come with the mini cheesecake pan. The pan is like a muffin tin, but there’s a hole in the bottom of each cup. You put the disk in to cover the hole, make your dessert and then to remove the dessert you push up through the hole and it pushes the dessert out. The disk slides off the bottom of the crust and you just wash it with the pan. It’s pretty cool actually- I love mine!

    Just made these for Easter for the first time and they were wonderful! Very light and delicious. Did not take long to make and what a hit! I used a k-cup coffee pod to push the crusts down and worked fine. Will definitely be one of my go to desserts from now on. Would like more ideas to use the pans.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed them– the K-cup is a GREAT idea for pushing down the crusts! Way to be creative! There are several desserts that use this pan right here on easybaked. If you go to the photo gallery link you can see all of the recipes on the site. We have chocolate chip cheesecake, almond joy cups and pineapple upside down cakes that all use this pan.

  94. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe. I’ve been wanting to make this for a while now, seeing how tantalizing they look in the pictures. So I finally decided to make these for Thanksgiving and everyone loved them! They tasted even better than I expected, I don’t know how you came up with such a great concept but I can’t wait to try the other recipes now.
    I used a muffin tin with cupcake liners and it was easy to work with. Still debating if getting the cheesecake tin would be worth it, considering how little I bake. But I’d want to get it just for the sake of working with a new gadget :).

    • I’m so glad you tried it!!! I love them too- one of my favorite go-to recipes! Plus they are so cute!! I really love my pan- but I bake a lot, so it gets a lot of use. It’s really fun though…? Thanks for stopping by to let me know how they worked out for you!
