I have spent many a cold winter in the states, thanks to my obsession with the cold, white stuff, and in that time I quickly developed a taste for the great campfire treat our American friends call s’mores. On many occasions, during a bonfire evening, where we were wrapped up warm and surrounded by snow, a pack of marshmallows would be revealed. These would be duly roasted over the fire before being smashed between graham crackers and chocolate to provide a warm sweet treat.
Graham crackers aren’t as easy to come by inNew Zealand(although available in some specialty stores) so I used Digestive biscuits as a substitute instead. We were lucky enough to have Kate’s homemade marshmallows (click to view) which made all of the difference! The intense raspberry flavour brought out by toasting these to a golden colour was something I haven’t experienced from store bought marshmallows.
A favourite with young and old, what better excuse is there to sit around, enjoying the warmth a campfire brings?
