As the summer is finally nearly upon us and with that the promise of long warm nights sat around a campfire, it is time to think about all of the yummy food that comes with that, in particular s'mores! While some of you will be drooling at the mouth at the mere mention of a s'more, others will probably be wondering on earth I am going on about! Well... a s'more is a campfire treat that is popular in the US and Canada, however has now crossed the pond and is proving just as popular in the UK. In the US s'mores are traditionally made by sandwiching a roasted marshmallow between two crackers, one of which is covered with a layer of chocolate. The idea is that once the marshmallow has started to brown on the outside, the inside will be all gooey and runny and when placed in between the crackers will melt with the chocolate into a scrummy, sweet, sticky mess! Additionally, I have just discovered that for a bit of variation one of the crackers could be spread with peanut butter (oh good god pure heaven)!!
There is some debate about the best way to make a smore, my personal favourite (to date) is sandwiching a melted marshmallow between two milk chocolate digestive biscuits... mmm... yummy, yummy, yummy!!! However having just found out about the peanut butter idea I think I am going to have a new favourite just as soon as I can test it out!!! Also, why have I not thought of this before?!?!? Peanut butter, marshmallow and chocolate are an obvious match made in heaven!!
Anyway this is a highly recommended and a particularly fun and social treat to make. I have yet to meet a single person who does not enjoy these! So happy s'moreing and let me know what you think if you try them out and also if you come up with any new variations!
