Classic American S’mores melted marshmallow topped with melted chocolate sandwiched in between a cracker, with a British classic twist…Eton Mess.
Happy Royal Wedding Day! Yesterday I posted a Victoria Sandwich in tribute to the Royal Wedding but I decided that one sponge wasn’t going to be enough especially because Meghan is American and a Victoria Sandwich is traditionally British.
I had the opportunity to spend three months working in America in 2016 on a Summer Camp and one of the kids favourites was S’mores. We would eat them around the camp fire at the end of another week or when we went trips away. Nothing reminds me more of my time by the lake in America than S’mores. So I decided to combine them with my favourite British dessert Eton Mess there is nothing better than cream, chewy meringue and fresh strawberries.
It took me ages to find the perfect crackers. I had seen some recipes for S’mores online that used Rich Tea biscuits but it just didn’t seem the same and the shape was all wrong. In America the perfect cracker is a Grahams Cracker unfortunately I have’t been able to find them back over here (if you know where I can buy them please please please let me know!) I didn’t have a campfire to be able to melt the marshmallows so instead I used my oven, it works just as well but doesn’t brown the marshmallows. I only used white marshmallows but of course you can use any colour you want.
In America we would cut a Hershey bar in half and put on top of the cracker before putting the marshmallow on top. I decided against this and instead melted some chocolate in the microwave and piped it over the top. I then cut up some fresh strawberries into little chunks and crushed the meringue over the top, before putting a cracker on top.
These are best eaten hot but you can eat them cold. The marshmallows are super super sticky when they melt they can be a bit of a nightmare to get onto the crackers and they are super stringy, you can probably see some stray bits of marshmallow on top of the cracker; they still taste SUPER DELICIOUS though so don’t worry if your marshmallows have a bit of a mind of there own and don’t want to stay on the cracker.
This recipe makes 4 S’mores.
1 Meringue Nest
100g Chocolate Chips
- Preheat the oven to 180C (160 Fan/Gas Mark 4). Line a baking tray with baking parchment and toast your marshmallows in the oven for 5-7min.
- Once they are melted place two marshmallows on top of the cracker.
- Cut the strawberries and place on top, you can cut the meringue I found it easier just to break it into pieces and place on top.
- Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in 10 second bursts until completely melted. Drizzle over the top of the marshmallow and finish by putting another cracker on top.
Tips and Tricks
If you want just a normal S’more follow the instructions just missing out the meringue and strawberries.
Instead of drizzling the melted chocolate, split a galaxy or dairy milk bar into sections and put one on whole instead.
