S’mores Dessert in a Bag

|

S’mores dessert in a bag is the perfect summertime treat for the kiddos with all the flavors of a s’mores without the sticky mess. You’ll love how easy these are to assemble & cleanup and the kids will enjoy a fun & unique treat.

S'mores dessert in a bag is an easy summer treat for camping or by the pool.

Summer break is approaching quickly here in the Northeast, and with pool weather just around the corner, I’ve been on the hunt for fun & easy snacks we can enjoy poolside all summer long.

Now that I’m working full time for Eleanor Rose Home, I am looking forward to spending most of my summer outside soaking up as much sunshine as possible. So, an easy treat that doesn’t require much time in the kitchen is a must for this busy mom.

As I was scrolling Pinterest looking for easy summer treats, I came upon walking desserts. If you’ve never heard of a walking dessert, it’s essentially a bunch of sweet ingredients combined into an individual, portable snack. Fun right?!

S'mores dessert in a bag is a walking dessert for summer with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and teddy grahams.

The best part of walking desserts is that you don’t need bowls or plates to serve them. Everything is combined into a snack bag that is thrown away once the dessert is eaten…which means easy cleanup!

One of my favorite summer treats is s’mores. I love the combination of gooey marshmallow, with melted chocolate, and the crunch of sweet graham crackers. This s’mores dessert in a bag combines all of those classic s’mores flavors into an easy, portable treat.

Ingredients for a walking dessert that tastes like a s'more.

How to Assemble S’mores Desserts

Cut open the top of each of the Teddy Graham snack bags. Remove a few of the Teddy grahams from each bag to garnish on top of the s’mores dessert in a bag.

Squeeze each bag lightly to crush Teddy Grahams into smaller pieces. Place the bags standing up into a serving dish or basket to keep upright.

Mix the instant chocolate pudding mix according to package directions. Once pudding is set, spoon about a 1/4-1/2 cup of chocolate pudding into each bag.

Tip: You can also place the pudding in a ziplock baggie, snip one end, and pipe the pudding into the bags which is what I did.

S'mores dessert in a bag is a delicious easy treat for summer.

Divide the marshmallows equally into each bag on top of the pudding.

Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly into each bag on top of the marshmallows.

Finally, garnish the s’mores walking desserts with a few Teddy Grahams and enjoy!

I served our s’mores dessert in a bag with these adorable red gingham wooden spoons. You can shop those here along with all the ingredients you need to make this walking dessert.

Walking Dessert Tips & Tricks

  • Cut the top of the Teddy Graham bag instead of ripping the bag open.
  • Assemble the s’mores dessert in a bag as close to serving time as possible. The graham crackers will become mushy from the pudding (which I actually like!).
  • For quick assembly, make the chocolate pudding ahead of time or use already prepared individual pudding cups instead.
  • Once you learn the walking dessert technique, the variations of desserts you can make are endless. Here are some walking dessert ideas I found on Pinterest.
  • These are the perfect treats for pool days, beach days, camping trips, picnics, and birthday parties!

S’mores Dessert in a Bag Substitutions & Variations

  • Use regular chocolate chips instead of mini.
  • Try peanut butter flavored morsels instead of chocolate chips for a different flavor profile.
  • Don’t have individual bags of Teddy Grahams? Buy the ingredients in bulk and assemble in small plastic drinking cups.
  • Individual pudding cups can be used instead of making the pudding yourself.
  • Mr. ERH loves a little whip cream on top of his desserts, so you could add that to the top of these s’mores desserts along with a few chocolate sprinkles!
