Before I start, I know that anyone American will probably be horrified that I’m comparing these yummy delights to an actual S’more but in my defence, my children are always asking me if they can try a S’more and this is the closest I’ve managed. 😉
For those of you who aren’t sure exactly what a S’more is, it’s a traditional night time campfire treat popular in the USA, consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.
As I am sadly lacking a campfire and can’t find anything that even slightly resembles what a graham cracker seems to be, I’ve had to come up with my own version of an oven baked s’more which is much more British as it’s cooked in the oven and involves the humble digestive biscuit. I even cheated some more and used chocolate digestive biscuits so I didn’t have to mess about with squares of chocolate!
All I did was place a digestive biscuit on an oven proof dish (chocolate side up), pop a marshmallow on top and then top it with another digestive biscuit (this time chocolate side down). I baked it for about 5 – 10 minutes at around 200 c until the marshmallow was just turning golden and voila, an oven baked, kind of S’more. The time I baked it for is very vague as it varied quite a bit each time I put a new batch in – no idea why!
And even though I’ve never tried an actual S’more, I like to think that my own homemade oven baked S’mores are just as yummy!
