 Instant Pot S'Mores Dump Cake

OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!! Holy cow this Instant Pot S’Mores Dump Cake is so good it really should come with a warning label.  Warning you will become addicted to this chocolate S’Mores deliciousness.  This dessert reminds me of something gooey and delicious that I would get out at a restaurant for a really special occasion.  It comes out of the instant pot warm, delicious and ready to serve! Have some vanilla ice cream ready to pair with this.  You will thank me later.  

This recipe was created after I tried my very popular lemon dump cake recipe in my instant pot.  It took a little experiment to discover that dump cakes were meant to be made in an instant pot.  I truly love it more so when cooked in my instant pot vs the traditional oven way of cooking it.

How fine do you crush the graham cracker pie crust?

Does this translate the same to a Ninja Foodi using the pressure setting?

How much water do you put in the pressure cooker? Do you cover up the glass bowl?

I made this last night and I did need to add another 1/4 cup butter to cover the top. It is soooo good! It was pretty runny when I first took it out so I put it in the fridge to firm up a bit. I have to say, it is actually better today! It firmed up and is delicious - very chocolaty. Next time I might use a white cake instead. But for any chocolate lovers out there, this is “Heaven in an Instant (pot)”. And it was super easy, which is always good.
