Tanya Burr crafts Christmas: S’Mores

 

For me, there is nothing finer or more Christmassy than being with friends, toasting marshmallows and sandwiching them between biscuits with squares of chocolate. These bring back memories of my first home with my husband Jim, where we had an open fire. On cold wintry afternoons we would make s’mores as a treat. Now we live in London and make these over the fire pit. You can even grill them!

MAKES 10

20 biscuits made using the Melting Snowman Cookies recipe here, baked in festive shapes if you like, or digestive biscuits, if you prefer

10 squares milk or dark chocolate

10 large marshmallows

YOU WILL NEED

some fireproof skewers

  • Lay half your biscuits out on a plate or tray and top each one with a piece of chocolate.
  • Spear a marshmallow on to a metal skewer and hold it over an open flame. Keep turning until the marshmallow softens and begins to brown. Use a fork to slide the marshmallow off the skewer on to the chocolate-topped biscuit and sandwich with a second biscuit. Devour immediately! Repeat with the remaining marshmallows.
  • If you’ve not got an open flame or fire, you can make these under a medium-high grill by topping a biscuit with a piece of chocolate, then the marshmallow and popping the stack under the preheated grill for 4-5 minutes, or until the marshmallow begins to brown and melt.
  • Be sure to keep your eye on them because marshmallows burn very easily. Remove from the grill and top with a second biscuit.
