Mother's Day is this weekend! How are you celebrating? From flowers and chocolates to taking mom out for dinner or a movie, there are plenty of ways to make her feel special this Sunday! Consider spoiling her with one of these sweet treats. While these recipes are pretty easy for children to whip up, dad or an older sibling might have to help with a few things!

Not only is this treat a delicious new way to enjoy a favorite childhood flavor combination, but you'll be amazed at how easy it is to whip up! 

  • 1 cup Crushed Graham Crackers, plus more for topping 
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, melted 
  • 2 cups Mini Semisweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping 
  • 3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream, chilled 
  • 1/2 c. Marshmallow Creme 
  1. To make the crust, combine graham crackers and butter. Divide the mixture evenly between 2-3 trifle dishes and press down to form a crust. 
  2. To make the chocolate mousse, beat 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form, 2-3 minutes. 
  3. Place chocolate chips in the microwave and heat in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate has melted. Fold the chocolate into the whipped cream, mixing it until just incorporated (a few streaks are okay). 
  4. Refrigerate the mousse for at least one hour. 
  5. To make the marshmallow whipped cream, beat the other cup of whipping cream to form soft peaks, 2-3 minutes. Then fold in the marshmallow creme. 
  6. To assemble the dessert, top each graham cracker filled cup with chocolate mousse. Then add a dollop of marshmallow whipped cream. Garnish with additional chocolate pieces and crumbled graham crackers.
