Welcome to our weekly lifestyle column, No Measuring Allowed. Every week we’ll be sharing a fun and easy Shabbat dessert that doesn’t require any measuring or special equipment, and calls for less than 6 ingredients! Perfect for busy moms and dads, or kids who love to help in the kitchen!


S’mores Trifle



1 packet (8 whole crackers) graham crackers
Melted margarine (about 6 tablespoons)


Marshmallow Mousse

1 16 oz container Kineret Whipped Topping
1 13 oz container (plus more as desired) Gefen Marshmallow Creme



1 7 oz bar baking chocolate, chopped
1 8 oz container non-dairy creamer



Elyon Mini Marshmallows


Prepare the S’mores Trifle


  1. In a food processor, process crackers into crumbs. In a small bowl, combine graham crackers and enough margarine to moisten and bring together the cracker crumbs. Spoon into the bottom of individual dishes or one large serving dish.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip non-dairy whipped topping until stiff. Add fluff and mix to combine. Spoon mousse on top of graham cracker crust (I use a piping bag so it’s neater).
  3. Place chopped chocolate in a small glass bowl. Heat creamer in a saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Pour over chocolate. Let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt, then stir until ganache is smooth. Pour ganache over marshmallow mousse.
  4. Top trifles with mini marshmallows. To toast the marshmallows, you can either use a kitchen torch (more fun) or place trifles under the broiler for 60 to 90 seconds (make sure you are using an oven-safe dish if using the latter method).
