Angel Food Cake S’mores Skewers

These Angel Food Cake S’mores Skewers are the perfect adult spin on a childhood favorite.  A perfectly toasted marshmallow is skewered between two pieces of angel food cake and topped with a strawberry before being drizzled with a luscious dark chocolate sauce spiked with Cafe Zinfandel wine.

If there’s one guy that deserves a treat this Father’s Day, it’s my husband.  I hereby admit to adding a novel’s worth of projects to his honey do list the last couple of weeks.  Our yard has never looked better and we’re definitely outside more than we are inside these days.

It all started with a delivery of 7 cubic feet of mulch.  Do you know what that looks like?  Picture a dump truck with it’s bed full and having it dumped into the middle of your driveway.  Good times!  Andy’s been wheelbarrowing – yes, I’ve now made that a verb – into the various flower beds in both the front and back.  Including a new bed he dug out when I got a whim that it would make the edge of the patio look better.

Then there was ordering, delivery and beginning installation of a retaining wall in our front yard.  So that our sloping to the street yard didn’t look like it went from grass to dirt to sidewalk, but looked a bit more intentional.

But I haven’t mentioned the best part!  The part that we added to our must-do list last Summer after moving into our home.  A fire pit!  The materials for it were also delivered with the retaining wall rock and sand.  (Thankfully one of our neighbors was out of town the week everything was delivered so she didn’t think we’d absolutely lost our mind.)

And what does a fire pit mean?  Say it with me – S’MORES!  But not just any smores, no sir.  I decided that Andy deserved a special treat for all of the sweat equity he’s been putting around here.   These Angel Food Cake Smores Skewers definitely say special to me!

A perfectly toasted marshmallow is skewered between two pieces of angel food cake and topped with a strawberry before being dipped into a luscious dark chocolate sauce spiked with Cafe Zinfandel wine.  Only one thing could make this dessert better.  Toasting the marshmallows outside on our new fire pit after we’ve put the kids to bed!

  1. What a great twist on s’mores to make them into skewers. Gorgeous looking ones too.

  2. Melanie! you sound like me! :) I always give my husband a long to-do list and he has now started his own digital list on his iphone so he doesn’t have to hear me asking again! :) and our yard also looks great b/c of all the hard work he has done! :) ok, I LOVE these angel food cake smores and love that you spiked the dark chocolate sauce with Cafe Zinfandel wine. Pinned!!

  20. Oh my – this dessert is SO up my alley! My husband and I love making fondue…and I love s’mores…so this seems like a delicious combination of the two! Mmmm

  21. Oh yes, the neverending mulch battle. We’ve had it delivered by a big truck, and also just bought a bazillion bags of it. Either way, it is SO much work. Stupid mulch. Your husband definitely deserves to kick back with a few of these skewers and relax!

    • melanie says:

      We’re SO close to finishing the mulching – hopefully today! Then it’s on to the next project. Why is yard work endless??

  22. Your husband sure does deserve these s’mores. All that manual labor! However, even I’d been digging a fire pit for these.

    • melanie says:

      You’re so sweet, Susan – and you’re right, he totally does deserve them. I didn’t even mention the rain barrel I have waiting for him to install!

  30. Such a creative idea! The only dessert skewers I have made have been super healthy, so I think I need to venture onto these :)

    • I had to laugh, Kacey, as I rarely make anything intentionally healthy. I’m a more over the top kind of girl. 😉

  31. what a fun way to eat a s’more! I am a BIG fan of angle food cake, and how can you beat anything that is smushed together with a toasty marshmallow
