This decadent s’mores cobbler brings the classic summer campfire treat inside in an easy to make dessert casserole. A chocolate cake batter cobbler sits on top of a rich, gooey chocolate filling and layers of graham crackers before it gets topped with marshmallows. It’s definitely a treat everyone will beg for!
Is it even summer without s’mores? We all adore them and try to make them as often as we can. This year, the weather has been iffy at best this summer with either crazy heat or bad storms.
So I’m trying to get our s’mores fix in as much as I can in other ways this summer. Like with this amazing s’mores cobbler.
What is a cobbler anyway?
You’re probably familiar with fruit cobblers like this blackberry cobbler that we love. According to the Kitchn, a cobbler is generally a casserole type dessert of fruit with a biscuit topping whereas crumbles and crisps have more of a strudel like topping.
However you could also use cake batter or cookie dough to top a cobbler. This s’mores cobbler tops uses cake batter for absolutely luscious results.
How is this s’mores cobbler different from a s’mores poke cake?
I’m not gonna lie- I do love a good s’mores poke cake. It is still one of my favorite s’mores recipes of all time, but this s’mores cobbler is even easier to put together than my s’mores poke cake.
Unlike my s’mores poke cake, which was made totally from scratch, this s’mores cobbler is semi homemade. My s’mores poke cake is more cake like with a cake base whereas this cobbler has a gooey chocolate base.

Along with your usual suspects of chocolate bars, graham crackers, and marshmallow you also need:
- instant chocolate pudding mix
- cold milk
- a box of chocolate cake mix
- a stick of butter
That’s it! Everything you need to be on your way to a delicious s’mores experience.
How to Make a S’mores Cobbler
Making this s’more cobbler is almost as easy as making s’mores dip. To start, just whip up the instant chocolate pudding using the two and half cups of cold milk. Keep whisking until the pudding thickens.
Then pour the pudding mixture into a 9×13 pan that you’ve sprayed with nonstick spray. After you have the base pudding layer, add the graham crackers right on top of the pudding. Top the graham cracker layer with Hershey’s chocolate bars. Then sprinkle the box cake mix evenly over the whole s’more base.
Next cut the butter into lots of even slices and top the cake mix layer with the butter slices. At this point, you can pop the chocolate casserole into the oven and bake it for 22 to 25 minutes.
When it comes out of the oven, use a durable spoon to mix any dry pieces of the cake mix into the rest of the cobbler. You’ll break up the graham cracker layer a bit while you do this.
At this point, top the whole thing with marshmallows. Then top the marshmallows with the rest of the chocolate. Lastly, pop the s’mores cobbler back into the oven and broil it for a minute or two until the marshmallows are golden and melted and pictures of absolute perfection.
When it comes out of the oven, serve it in a bowl.Feel free to top it with whipped cream and serve with extra graham crackers for dipping. Enjoy!
