More S’mores Please

 

Camping

 

My blokefolk went camping recently – they do so love a good outdoor expedition. No showers, sitting around a campfire, boating, fishing, swimming, exploring … et al. They tend to leave me behind. I don’t really camp. I am camp, but I don’t camp. Hello, did I mention no showers?

One of the highlights for Boyo, apart from no showers for two days, is s’mores.

A s’more is a North American food delight consisting of graham crackers, chocolate and a toasted marshmallow. So beloved is the s’more in America that it even has its very own annual celebration day. Yup, August 10 is National S’more Day!

 

 

To make a s’more, you sandwich a square of chocolate and a toasted marshmallow between two graham crackers and consume!

However, graham crackers are almost impossible to source in Australia, so let me introduce you to the Welshman’s Cheaty McCheat S’mores.

 

S'Mores

 

You need a packet of chocolate digestive biscuits. The British McVities are our personal favourite and are now available in lots of supermarkets. You could also use Australian Arnott’s Chocolate Wheatens or New Zealand Griffin’s Chocolate Wheatens.

Next, of course, you’re going to need a packet of marshmallows and a fire to toast them on, as well as a toasting fork, obvs. A stick does the trick too.

Squish the toasted marshmallow between two biscuits and consume with delight!

Boyo was concerned that I had missed out on the s’more delights due to not going camping, so the Welshman toasted me a marshmallow on the barbecue and whacked it on a McVitie’s chocolate digestive. I have to admit that it was heavenly, if not a teensy bit sickly sweet. Two biscuits would have been too much for me.

I tried an even more Cheaty McCheat version in the microwave, but it was a bit of an epic fail. Still sickly sweet delicious though!

The best fun about s’mores, apart from the eating, is the sitting around the campfire, toasting marshmallows over the flames. So I’m told.

Have you had a genuine North American s’more? Do you think you’d try the Welshman’s Cheaty McCheat version? They’re goooood!

    Nope I have never had them,but look like something I might like to try.I do NOT do camping either,I do not lay on the ground nor sit around in the wilderness freezing to death and no showers I won’t even go there! My husband goes away with his soccer team every year to the wilderness(someones property ) and has a great time ,riding motor bikes and not having a shower for 4 days as soon as he comes in the door I order him into the shower.I do not see the attraction to an unwashed body and campsites do not have provision for all my needs like a bathroom,a mirror and plugs for the hairdryer and GHD!!!ReplyCancel

    I have never had them, but they look delicious. Pity I don’t do camping…unless it was glamping (glamour camping). I saw a photo of a tent that looked like a five star hotel suite recently on Facebook. Now that’s what I’m talking about lol.ReplyCancel

      I don’t camp either. Ever. Loathe it. I just do not understand why people would deliberately choose to sleep on the ground, shower under a bucket (if lucky) and dig a hole to poo in when we live in perfectly good houses with running water and electricity and comfortable beds! 😉

      Oh, and those five star tents? That’s what we stayed in on our Botswana Okavango Delta safari honeymoon. Lush.ReplyCancel
