    LOVE THIS!

    Christine Feeney from ca

    I made this last 4th of july (08), I adjusted the recipe slightly-I used brownies and I chopped my graham crackers for the filling. If you are a chocolate lover-this recipe is AMAZING! This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!

    Yummy summer memories anytime

    ann ferraro from Watertown, MA

    Love this cake anytime of year...in the winter we recapture memories of time spend at the campfire...when I am in a rush I make this cake with a cake mix and just use the recipe for the filling and instructions for assembly. Out of this world yummy. The filling can be used in so many other recipes...it's a keeper!

    Too Rich

    Carol Ragghianti from Sherman, TX

    This recipe was easy for me, and well received by family as a pretty dessert. They thought it was good, just too rich. So I wiil try to make it less rich if I do it again. Thanks Nestle's.

    Good, But Not Easy

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    Maybe it was the heat, or maybe just me, but I found this cake took concentration to make, and I suggest you read the recipe all the way through a couple times, before beginning. The cake tasted good, but didn't get the stand-up-cheer I expected. Although S'Mores are supposedly a summertime food, I might try this recipe in the fall, after cooler weather arrives.

    So Good

    Caryn Schwartz from

    I thought this came out really well, and looked just like in the picture. I didn't halve the two cakes, though, so my torte was square with thicker cake layers. I thought it turned out well that way.

    Kathy Christopher from Williamsville, NY

    This recipe was great- great directions, easy to follow and tasted amazing! We took it to a 4th of July party and everyone loved it. I can't wait to make it again. I did use organic heavy whipping cream and cook and serve pudding. I would like to try chocolate pudding with the recipe next time!!!

    Katie Berning from GRAND RAPIDS, MI

    I made the Sensational S'more Torte for the 4th of July and it really is sensational!! Everybody loved, loved, loved it - it was even better that I thought it would be! The cake itself was so rich and delicious and paired with the fun filling was perfect. Definitely a keeper!

    You're gonna love this one!

    Penny Cobb from Bailey, NC

    I made this for our family Fourth of July cookout. It was a huge hit. I love it when my version looks just like the picture and it did. My family raved about the filling and cake saying it wasn't as rich as it looked and going back for seconds. It serves a lot of people so it's good for pot lucks and parties. Try this one, you won't be disappointed.

    Too Sweet!

    angie leggett from Hazlehurst, GA

    I thought this would be chocolate lovers dream...but it was entirely to sweet. 640 calories is off the chain. almost to much cake for the filling? Just not what I had anticipated

    sensational s'more

    Sue Weals from New Lexington, OH

    We have made this recipe 2 times now,the 1st time as the recipe says and it turned out great.The 2nd time we cheated a little ,we used a box cake mix made it easier,and we used chocolate pudding mix instead of the vanilla.It was fabulous. They now have chocolate marshmellows out,so next time we make this we are going to use those,and yes we will be making this recipe again & again & again.

    Smore's Torte

    LAURA JOHNSON from SAN JOSE, CA

    I made this for a family reunion. I know it was a big hit .There were 2 birthday cakes there as well .The Smore's Torte disappeared. It was hard to find takers for the birthday cakes. It was not that hard to make and of course,it was delicious as have been all the recipes that I have tried from Very Best Baking. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes.

    Sensational S' Mores Torte

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    This is a very elegant dessert. Takes a little time, but well worth it. The combination of flavors is wonderful. I did use brownie mix instead, and sugar free puddings. My family just loved it and I was asked for the recipe before the second fork full.......Great dessert, thanks to my fellow Ohio baker...........
