My name’s Hayley, and I’m addicted to subscription services.
First it started with magazines. I’d ask (and still ask) for subscriptions for Christmas and my birthday. Magazines are one thing I couldn’t live without – I love getting them in the mail, eagerly anticipating reading every article and checking out every advertisement. I even save some of my magazines – my beloved Cosmos and Real Simples. Those are the creme de la creme in my magazine-obsessed eyes.
Then there’s the makeup subscription services: Birchbox and Ipsy. I’m OBSESSED. Every month I basically hound my postman for my Ipsy and Birchbox packages, anxiously awaiting my beauty products. He probably thinks I’m an escaped mental patient, desperate for makeup.
And then there’s Stitch Fix. I adore it so. Each month (or however you set it to come) I get a package of five hand-picked items just for me. I’m always so excited to see what’s in the box that I stalk the package with their USPS tracking info. Again, my postman must think I’m some special brand of psychotic, always peeking out my windows in hopes of seeing his truck pull up in front of my house. One of these days, he won’t come and instead some kind of mental institution van will show up instead, I just know it.
And honestly? As long as they bring my fix and let me try everything on first, I’ll be okay with going wherever they need me to.
So yeah – fixes, glam bags, boxes, magazines… color me obsessed, but each month is like Christmas throughout the month. And fake Christmas month reminds me of winter, which is desperately needed in the midst of all this wretched heat we’re getting. Seriously, we’re turning on the AC at like 8 in the morning, it’s been so bad. So I’m on a desperate hunt to eat things that are chilled, and this No Bake S’mores Lush Dessert is the perfect solution to life’s problems.
…including waiting for my next mail surprise.

No-Bake S'mores Lush Dessert
- 36 S'mores Oreos or Golden Oreos with Chocolate divided
- 4 Tbsp butter melted
- 1 (3.4 oz) box chocolate instant pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 pkg JET-PUFFED Marshmallow Creme
- 4 cups Cool Whip about two 8-oz pkgs, divided
- About 1/2 cup JET-PUFFED Mallow Bits
- Place 20 cookies in a gallon size resealable bag and begin crushing the cookies with a rolling pin or meat mallet until the cookies become coarse crumbs. Pour the cookie crumbs into a large bowl with the melted butter and toss to combine. Press into a greased 8 or 9-inch square baking dish, compacting them loosely in there. Set aside.
- Wipe out the bowl and add in the pudding mix and milk, whisking until combined and letting sit for 2 minutes. Add in one package (2 cups) of the Cool Whip, folding it in until combined. Carefully spread this mixture over the cookies in the pan.
- Meanwhile, fold together the remaining Cool Whip and marshmallow creme until combined. Spread over the chocolate pudding mixture in the pan. Set aside.
- Crush the remaining cookies in another plastic bag until coarse crumbs as formed. Sprinkle the cookies over the top with the marshmallow bits. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours before cutting into slices to serve.

I am obsessed with magazines AND s’mores! I’d love to curl about with a piece of this and a good cooking magazine on the couch — the perfect no-bake dessert!
Cooking magazines – LOVE THEM. Thanks Ashley!
Oh, my gosh, that filling sounds incredible!!! I honest think I could eat half a pan with a spoon!
I pretty much did that exact thing, Liz!

Jocelyn @BruCrew Life says
Fun mail days are the best!!! I always get so excited when it’s good stuff and not bills. I would be super excited to open my fridge and see this amazing dessert too! It’s got all my favorites in one awesome no bake dessert!!!
I knew you’d love this one Jocelyn! 🙂
I made this recipe over the weekend and it was DELICIOUS! I used sugar free pudding mix, skim milk, and lite Cool Whip (that makes it practically health food, right????) and it was a hit at our family dinner. The hardest part was waiting the 8 hours for refrigeration. (I may have cheated and cut it in 6.5 hours, but it came out of the pan perfectly.) Thank you for the great recipe!
Sarah, I’m so glad you and your family loved it – and that it came out earlier than expected! Good to know 🙂
Cant wait to try this recipe! But i need to know, do i buy the 7oz or 13oz jar of marshmallow creme?
Hi Kara, sorry for the delay – the 7 oz! To be honest, I didn’t even know they made a larger one, haha!
