Chocolate digestive s’mores – an easy camping treat

Chocolate digestive s'mores - an easy camping treat

I know that s’mores are a well known American treat but they are so easy to re-create at home. Have you heard of s’mores? It’s a traditional campfire treat popular in North America. It consists of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.

We are obsessed about camping at the moment, read more about our outdoor adventures here. So we really wanted to try re-creating these delicious sounding treats at home. You need few ingredients. We made ours two different ways. The first time we used Jacobs Cream Crackers, chocolate spread and the biggest marshmallows we could find.

We spread the crackers with chocolate spread, toasted the marshmallow on a stick over the barbecue, then placed it inside the two crackers. I love melted marshmallows but they melted the chocolate and made a delightfully sticky treat.

The next time we made chocolate digestive s’mores using just two ingredients – chocolate digestives and giant marshmallows. These were ridiculously easy to make. Simple toast your giant marshmallows on a stick over a barbecue then place between two chocolate digestives.

The warmth of the toasted marshmallow melts the chocolate! Everything slides around a bit but there were so delicious! The kids just love them. They are perfect for toasting over a campfire but equally good at home too.

      I don’t know why it took us so long to try making them!

    How amazing do these look. Such a treat! When I was in Orlando I was in a hotel with a smores pit and a smores making night

    This is an interesting idea! I did not think to combine marshmallow and cookies, it looks delicious.
