Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge carries the atmosphere of America’s great National Park Lodges — places where tall trees, fresh earth, clear lakes, and campfires are the backdrop for incredible vacations and explorations. And some quintessential eats at places like this are, of course, S’mores!!
For those who aren’t sure what S’mores are, they’re a campfire dessert made by smooshing a roasted marshmallow with a piece of chocolate (Hershey’s is standard) between two graham crackers. Sounds pedestrian, but it really is a very rich and satisfying dessert! The name? Just imagine kids saying, “May I have s’more?” after getting their first taste!
Wilderness Lodge offers two versions of S’mores in its restaurants: the S’mores cupcake at Roaring Fork, and the S’mores cheesecake at Whispering Canyon Cafe!
Over at Roaring Fork, Wilderness Lodge has introduced one of the most well-done S’mores cupcakes I’ve ever seen.
Usually, S’mores cupcakes use fully formed marshmallows, but I love that this version tops off with melted, gooey, browned marshmallow on top!
You’ll also find a graham cracker-flavored cake underneath the marshmallow topping. But where’s the chocolate? Two places! Inside the cake are hidden a couple of pieces of Hershey’s chocolate. There’s also a piece of Hershey’s chocolate plopped onto the top of the Marshmallow.
This dessert is amazing. I’m not a huge fan of marshmallow sauces, but this gooey marshmallow topping feels and tastes just like roasted marshmallow, and the graham cracker cake is a very interesting and unique touch. Delicious.
This flavor-packed dessert has been on the menu at Whispering Canyon Cafe for years!
Graham cracker crust is topped with dense, sweet cheesecake. Another layer of crust tops this, then chocolate ganache is spread all over the cake. Finally, marshmallows make up the top texture.
This one is not usually available via take-out, but you can always ask!
Other S’mores Options
Chocolate covered pre-made (and relatively shelf-stable) S’mores can also be found at the Main Street Confectionery and other candy stores around Disney World.
