The theme for this month's Recipe Redux was to share our favorite kitchen gadgets. By far, one of my favorites is my CuisinArt ice cream maker. I am infatuated with making delicious flavors of ice cream and sorbet. I hope you all enjoy this unique take on one of my favorite desserts. This S'mores features a flourless chocolate cake, homemade graham crackers, and toasted homemade marshmallows.
