Everyone's Making S'Mores Trifles For Autumn
So naturally when we started spotting s'mores trifles popping up on Instagram, our sweet tooth started tingling.
With layer upon layer of toasted marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate ganache and crushed biscuits, the s'mores trifle is a thing of beauty.
Perfect for Bonfire Night, Halloween, or pretty much any special occasion, these lavish chocolatey puds will be a hit with kids and adults alike.
Best of all, the recipe is super flexible, and can be mixed up with pretty much any biscuit or cream alternative you prefer.
Alternatively, why not take things up a notch and throw in a layer of broken brownies or chunks of chocolate cake into the mix?
There's the option whip up one big family-friendly dish of trifle, or go small and dainty with individual pots if you're throwing a dinner party - like the mini choc chip-topped trifles above snapped by Instagrammer Tiffany Pledger.
Just look at the s'mores trifle above by home cook Kelly Bain (@kellyrbain), who made her creation from "leftover cake scraps and Graham cracker cake, topped with chocolate pudding, whipped cream, Graham cracker crumbs, dark chocolate and marshmallows."
Or this chocolatey masterpiece by food blogger Shashi, who goes by @savoryspin on Insta.

Shashi used dairy-free milk for her individual Chocolate Caramel Microwave S'Mores Trifles and threw in caramel syrup and milk caramel chocolates along with chocolate syrup, Graham crackers and marshmallows. For the full recipe, visit her Insta feed.
Meanwhile, foodie and recipe developer Sanjita (@foodie_singh_kour) served a delicious-looking Indo-American S'mores Rabi Trifle made with silky smooth chocolate ganache, oozing marshmallows, crushed Graham crackers and homemade Rabri, a traditional North Indian dish made with condensed milk.
If you want to substitute the Rabri, you can always use a dairy or non-dairy thickened cream alternative.
You will need:
-Crushed Graham crackers (or any biscuit alternative you prefer)
-Chocolate ganache (you can make your own ganache using a simple 1:1 ratio of chocolate chips and milk or buy it premade)
-Homemade Rabri (Sanjita used this traditional North Indian dish made by boiling sweet, condensed-milk on a low heat for a long time, but you could use any dairy or non-dairy thickened cream alternative)
-Toasted marshmallows for the topping
-Layer the crushed biscuits, chocolate ganache and Rabri (or whipped cream if you prefer) into individual glass dishes that showcase the layers.
-Top with toasted marshmallows and serve.
-You could also try topping the dish with fresh fruits like berries or mango pieces.
Brb, we're off to attempt making one of these ourselves!
