Gooey enough to satisfy kids, architectural enough to appeal to adults, this ice-cream-sundae take on classic campfire s’mores is literally over-the-top. Broken-up graham crackers, scoops of ice cream, hot fudge sauce, marshmallow topping, almonds, and a charred marshmallow add up to a tower of indulgence. For a fruity variation on the s’mores sundae theme, check out our Strawberry S’mores Sundaes.

Special equipment: You’ll need a small kitchen blowtorch to scorch the marshmallows.

  • Yield: 4 sundaes
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 5 mins

Ingredients (7)

  • 8 graham cracker squares
  • 1 quart chocolate ice cream
  • 1/2 cup Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce, warmed
  • 1/4 cup marshmallow topping
  • 1 cup Basic Whipped Cream
  • 4 jumbo marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. For each sundae, break 1 graham cracker square into rough pieces and scatter into a serving bowl. Add a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with some of the chocolate sauce and marshmallow topping.
  2. Layer with another broken graham cracker, a second scoop of ice cream, and some more chocolate sauce and marshmallow topping. Top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  3. Set a marshmallow on top and blast it with a kitchen torch until browned and gooey—try to avoid blasting the whipped cream! Garnish with almonds. Repeat to make the rest of the sundaes. Serve immediately.
