If there’s one American tradition I think we should adopt here (apart from NFL) its s’mores. Imagine building a fire on the beach, toasting marshmallows on sticks and sandwiching them between crunchy biscuits and melting chocolate. Sounds perfect.
Sadly, we are in London and there is not a beach in sight. Hell, even if there was it is bloody FREEZING and I don’t even want to get out of bed, let alone build a fire in my back garden (I use the word garden as an exaggeration for the 1 square foot of patio outside the back door).
If this is getting you down as much as it is me, then this recipe is for you. No need to leave the comfort of your own sofa and you can whip it up in 10minutes. I give you… Oven Baked S’mores.
They’re gooey, delicious and very very naughty.
Here’s what you do…
Turn the oven on to 220ºC or gas mark 8.
Break up enough milk chocolate to cover the bottom (and then some) of an oven proof dish.
Top with marshmallow. I used giant marshmallows cut into thirds, but you could use mini or regular sized marshmallows.
Pop the dish in the oven and keep the light on! They’ll need to be in no longer than 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them though, marshmallows burn very easily and they should be just browned at the top.
As soon as they’re out of the oven, grab a pack of digestives and get dunking!
Or, just get in there with a spoon…
Eat up quick, because dried, cold chocolate is a bugger to wash up. 24 hours later my dish is still soaking…
Yum. Yum. and Y U M!
