nutella s’more angel food cake sammies with marshmallow frosting
Sometimes I feel stuck in the middle.
As in constantly balancing on a long plank between two ships. Do I tip-toe to the ship full of pirates and adventures? Throwing caution to the wind and holding no regrets. Or, do I stroll to the ship where life is steady and a routine feels sexy?
My personality is of the committed type. If I say I am going to do something, honor something, or show up for something, I’m your gal. But I’m slowly discovering there is a curse of sorts when it’s comes to being committed.
You are either all in, or never in.
I have hard time balancing between partying with the pirates and making sure I’ve gotten eight hours of sleep. These two worlds will never combine, really they shouldn’t, but I am torn as a person that seeks balance to somehow mesh them together. “And now deep thoughts, brought to you by…..”
However, I will tell you the one thing I will full-on-commit-walk-the-plank-hold-no-regrets would be these epic Nutella S’more Angel Food Cake Sammies. These whimsical sammies are chock full of nostalgia and decadant ingredients. So, forget about the ol’ s’more campfire routine. Instead, let’s sass up the classic “Sandlot” inspired dessert and stuff glossy marshmallow frosting and Nutella in between two fluffy pieces of angel food cake. I’m telling you, you are going to want some s’more.
You know I’ve been waiting the entire post to say that.
So, make these sammies and take s’more out of life.
Nutella S'more Angel Food Cake Sammies with Marshmallow Frosting
for the sammies:
8 slices homemade or store bought angel food cake
1/2 cup Nutella
1 cup grahman crackers, crushed
1/2 cup semi-chocolate chips
1 tablespoon whipping cream
for the marshmallow frosting:
2 egg whites
1/4 granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
for the sammies:
Preheat a grill pan to medium heat. Place angel food cake slices on grill for a couple of minutes, flip and grill the other side. Remove angel food cake slices from heat and set aside to cool slightly. Spread Nutella on top of the pound cake slices on the non grill side. Spread some of the marshmallow frosting on top of Nutella. Place two slices of pound cake together; making a sammie.
In a small sauce pan, melt chocolate chips. Stirring to make sure the chocolate doesn't burn. Spread some of the melted chocolate on top and sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top of the chocolate. Serve immediately.
for the marshmallow frosting:
In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, beat 2 egg whites with salt until frothy. Gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Heat syrup in a glass microwaveable dish until it boils. Pour syrup in thin stream over egg white mixture, a little at a time. Beating on high speed until harder peaks form. Add vanilla and beat until glossy!
In college I would be hanging with the pirates but now I like the steady side of life. These sammies would be perfect for all sides.
I feel the same way! But every now and again, we need to show our booty! 🙂
I can’t help but chuckle at the struggle to party with the pirates and getting 8 hours of sleep… I try my best for the latter, but I wish I could say it was because I was partying with pirates 🙂 More likely I was folding laundry! But I’ll tell you what I’d rather do more than anything… Help you eat these sammies! These are divine!
I would gladly welcome your help, Liren! xoxo
Cake sandwich for dayz!
Fo’ shizzle. xoxo
Oh how I can relate to the sentiment behind this post! While we’re hanging out on the plank, I’d vote for a s’more sammie in each hand. Balance, you see.
And this is why I heart you!! Thanks, Erin!
Oh man, I can totally relate to this. If you figure things out please let me know soe tips! 🙂
LOVE these sammies!
Deal! Thanks, Tieghan!
Oh my WOW!
Ohhh the classic battle between doing what you’re passionate about in life versus doing what you thing you should be doing. I’m picking up what you’re putting down, sister. I am indeed.
I also want to pick up on these sammies. No-hassle s’mores? I’m in! My girlfriends and I are going camping this weekend, and we’ve been making a list of what food items to bring. Obvi s’mores fixings are on that list, but I’m wondering if we ladies should sub in nutella, angel food cake and mallow fluff for some insta gratification 😀 <- I want a sammie in my mouth.
Can I go camping with y’all? I could make these sammies and we could chit-chat about life decisions. Thanks, Julia!
Seriously, these look amazing!!! Can I place an order, please?? Yum!
Totally agree with everyone else–I understand that struggle completely! I tend to be a steady kinda gal though 😉
These sammies look incredible!
Oh, how well I can relate to this! As fun as the pirate party looks, I’ve always been a safe and steady kinda gal.
Pretty sure stretchy pants were invented with these sammies in mind! I’ll take 10!
Seriously drooling over these! Love them!
dying to try this!!!
Say whaaaaat?! Girl, I love you.
ohh that’s some indulgence!!
Speaking of the Sandlot, I totally watched it this weekend with my bff…which brought me straight back to watching the very first time.
Also, these sandwiches are totally speaking to the hedonistic, pregnant lady that I am these days. Gimme.
I vote for living life to the point of all kinds of crazy! But then again, I also REALLY like my sleep. and my nutella. Can’t we just have it all?!
I am speechless…I need to make this very very soon and not share one bite of this with the fam … shhhh don’t tell! 😉 Pinned
