Frozen Coconut S'mores

I just wanted stop in and share a great little recipe that I found in the August 2011 edition of Woman's Day Magazine.  It is a no fuss, no bake dessert that will be great for these HOT Summer days we are having.
Hope you Enjoy!

Frozen Coconut S'mores

Recipe Ingredients

6 to 8 graham crackers (the entire rectangle)

1 1/3 cups heavy cream

4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped, plus more shaved, for serving

3 large egg whites

2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 cup cream of coconut (not coconut milk)

Recipe Preparation

1. Line the bottom of a 9-in.-square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides. Place graham crackers in the bottom of the pan, cutting them to fit as necessary.

2. Heat 1/3 cup of the cream in a small saucepan until it barely begins to simmer; remove from heat. Add the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Spread the chocolate mixture evenly over the graham crackers. Freeze for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites in a large bowl until frothy. Gradually add the sugar and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form; set aside. In a separate large bowl, using the electric mixer (no need to clean the beaters), beat the cream of coconut and the remaining cup of cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the coconut-cream mixture until fully incorporated.

4. Spread the coconut mixture evenly over the chilled chocolate and freeze, covered, for at least 6 hours or up to 2 days. When ready to serve, use the parchment overhangs to lift and transfer the s’more to a cutting board. Cut into 32 bars and top with shaved chocolate, if desired.

* When using coconut cream, it is best to open the can completely and stir to make sure it has not settled or separated. 


  1. Great recipe! Your right, perfect for a hot day.

  2. Oh, I'm passing this along to our Coconut Acolyte and see if I can get her to faint from desire.

  3. This sounds yummy I love coconut. It's raining here I wish I had a hot day, but I don't need an excuse for a tasty treat.

  4. Looks delicious. Next time I'm at the store I'll be looking for cream of coconut.
