Gluten Free S’Mores Icebox Cake Recipe

I thought the days of having to keep a kid on summer break from school were long gone for me. Apparently not. The other day, my daughter-in-law dropped off a beautiful 13-year-old who had been spending entirely too much time on some form of a screen. The beautiful 13-year-old was suffering from lack of sleep and to be honest, arrived a bit on the grouchy side. Nothing like my Gluten Free S’Mores Icebox Cake Recipe to change that.

So I did with her what I used to do with my boys years ago in similar situations – I put her to work. The trick to avoiding a full-on revolt is to balance the work with things that are enjoyable as well as productive and to throw in some rewards when the work is done.

So I not only had her clean out and re-organize my pantries, I asked her to help me make some dessert. She was all-in once she heard what dessert I had in mind – a gluten free S’mores Icebox Cake. We talked about what should go in it and then she got busy.

The result was a happy kid who slept like a baby that night and a really delicious dessert the next day.

This cake is best when left in the refrigerator at least 8 hours or up to a day or two.

Author: Gluten Free & More


  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 5.1 ounce package instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 cups heavy cream divided
  • 1 7.5 ounce jar marshmallow fluff
  • 1 8 ounce box Kinnikinnick S’morables gluten free graham Style Crackers
  • 1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ounce semisweet or bittersweet chocolate grated


  • Pour the milk into a mixing bowl, add the pudding mix and whisk or beat for two minutes.
  • Beat 1 cup heavy cream until it starts to thicken. Add the marshmallow fluff and beat until it forms soft peaks.
  • Line a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, making sure to let plenty of the wrap hang over the sides of the pan. Place one layer of graham crackers in the bottom. You may have to break some pieces to fit (save a handful of broken bits to decorate the top of the cake later).
  • Put ½ cup of mini marshmallows on top in a single layer. Top with half of the marshmallow fluff whipped cream, pressing down a little so it gets in between the marshmallows. Top with half the pudding, spread into and even layer. Place another layer of graham crackers, another half cup of marshmallows, the rest of the whipped cream, and the rest of the pudding. Top it off with another layer of graham crackers. Pull the plastic wrap up and cover. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 2 days.

Before serving:

  • Place the top oven rack about 4 inches from the broiler. Preheat the broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the remaining ½ cup of mini marshmallows on the pan in a single layer. Place under the broiler, with the door ajar so you can watch closely, for 30 – 45 seconds or until they puff up and brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • Whip the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream with the powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
  • Remove the cake from the refrigerator, pull off the plastic from the top, place a rectangular plate on top, and invert the plate and pan so the cake goes onto the plate. Remove the plastic wrap.
  • Frost the cake with the whipped cream. Top the cake with the toasted marshmallows, reserved cracker crumbs, and shaved chocolate. Can be served immediately or refrigerated until ready to serve.
