Yeah, s’mores are a must when we go camping. There’s nothing better than roasting marshmallows in an open fire and combine it with chocolate, graham crackers, family and friends. However, my s’mores fudge cake is just as awesome, even though I am using a cake from a box. The only difference is that it is served more elegantly than the traditional s’mores, smile! Better yet, my Isabelita help me to make it. Priceless!

1 c. Strawberries ($1.15)
½ c. blueberries ($1.15)
1 bag of mini marshmallow’s ($1.95)
Once the cake is done, remove from mold and slice it across to fill it with frosting.
Place the cake back together after filling it and then spread more frosting on the top.
Place all the marshmallows to cover as much as you can.
Heat your broil until ready and then place the cake with the marshmallow’s inside.
WARNING! IT TAKES JUST SECONDS TO GET GOLDEN. SO, PUT THE CAKE IN, LOOK THROUGH THE OVEN GLASS AND IN NO TIME, (perhaps 4 to 5 seconds) TAKE IT OUT OR IT WILL BURN.
Alright, once the cake is out of the oven and the marshmallows are beautifully golden and a bit charred, melt some of the leftover frosting in the microwave and drizzle it all over the top.
Time to enjoy this beauty!
