How to Make S’mores

S’mores (some more) are delicious and simple campfire treats synonymous with camping, made with roasted marshmallows, crackers or biscuits and a few pieces of chocolate.

Although traditionally an American treat (the earliest recipe can be found in the Girls Scout handbook of 1927), some of you will know the South African version using Marie biscuits instead of Graham crackers.

How to make S'mores

You will need:

Marshmallows
Some form of cracker or biscuit (Marie biscuits or Digestive biscuits work well)
Plain milk or dark chocolate
A long thin stick or metal skewer
A campfire!

Using two biscuits, start by laying them out on a flat surface, and covering one biscuit with a few pieces of chocolate.

Using the stick or skewer, roast one marshmallow over coals or an open flame, rotating slowly until brown and gooey. Its up to you how much or little you want to roast it, but remember it is the heat of your marshmallow that will help to melt the chocolate when you stick everything together.

As soon as your marshmallow is done to your liking, place it on top of the biscuit with the chocolate. Now take the other biscuit and cover the hot marshmallow, pressing down firmly and pull out the stick.

Leave for a few minutes to cool down slightly and to give the chocolate a chance to melt.

And finally squish the s’more between your fingers and eat it immediately!!
