For the Chocolate Mousse Pudding:
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the cream on medium-high speed. As the cream begins to thicken, gradually add the granulated sugar and whip until soft peaks form.
Reduce the mixer speed to medium-low, add the pudding mix and cocoa powder, and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
Spoon the pudding into shot glasses. (Alternatively, spoon it into a piping bag fitted with a decorative tip of your choice and pipe the pudding into the shot glasses.)
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
For the S'mores Parfait:
Place a 1-inch layer of graham cracker pieces in the bottom of four 16-ounce jars.
Spoon 1/2 cup of mousse over the graham crackers in each jar. Top with a second layer of graham crackers and another 1/2 cup of mousse.
Top each jar with 5 marshmallows to cover. Using a kitchen torch, toast the marshmallows until golden. Serve immediately.
(If you don’t have a kitchen torch, preheat the oven to 400°F and arrange the marshmallows on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet, at least 3 inches apart. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes. Keep an eye on the marshmallows to make sure they don’t burn. Use a spatula to remove the marshmallows from the baking sheet and place them in the jars, pressing them slightly into the mousse.)
