Potluck dessert

Looking for a delicious dessert to bring to the Easter potluck this weekend?

How about S’mores Cream Dessert with No-Bake Graham Cracker Crust?

I created this dish from three different recipes for an event this past summer, and it delivered on a promise to look like a show-stopper and taste as good as it looks.

S’mores Cream Dessert with No-Bake Graham Crust



  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups Cool Whip

Pudding Layer

  • 2 boxes (3.9-ounce size) chocolate fudge instant pudding & pie filling
  • 4 cups cold whole milk


  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 7-ounce jar marshmallow cream
  • 3 Special Dark Hershey’s chocolate candy bars, chopped up
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup graham cracker chunks


  1. Crush the graham crackers with a rolling pin. Melt stick of butter in a bowl in the microwave (on high about 15 seconds at a time). Add crushed crackers and granulated sugar to the bowl and mix. Press into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan.
  2. With a hand mixer or strong arm, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar. When smooth, use a rubber spatula to fold in Cool Whip. Spread mixture onto graham cracker crust.
  3. In large bowl, whisk pudding with milk for two minutes. Let it sit for three minutes to thicken, then spread evenly over cream cheese layer.
  4. Gently stir together Cool Whip and marshmallow cream. Spread evenly over pudding layer. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Just before serving (so graham crackers don’t get soggy), top with chopped candy bars, marshmallows and graham cracker chunks. Serves 15.
