Candy Cane S'mores | BLOGMAS DAY 17


A classic American snack, usually eaten around the campfire. A S'more is traditionally a combination of toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate, sandwiched between two Graham Crackers. I really wish I could have found those crackers but I think they're only available on Ocado, and we didn't do an Ocado shop this week! If you've been following my vlogs, you'll know that i've been around every supermarket in town lately, looking for marshmallow fluff (for a different recipe); we didn't need online shop to add to the mix! 
These s'mores have been given the festive touch with the added ingredients of crushed peppermint candy canes; my absolute favourite thing at Christmas. These are so simple to make; they take only about 5 minutes. 

The following recipe serves 2, but you can really estimate/chop and change the amounts to suit you; it's such a simple recipe.

Ingredients

2 x digestive biscuits
2 x small handfuls of mini marshmallows 
2 x candy canes
150g milk chocolate

Method

1. Start melting the chocolate in a bain marie. If you don't have one, you can use a bowl placed over a pan filled with a little boiling water. Or if you prefer, melt it in the microwave with 30 second blasts.


2. Whilst the chocolate is melting, place two digestives on a plate and top with the handfuls of marshmallows. Put the plate in the microwave and heat, 30 seconds at a time. I did mind about 3 times, but it's up to you how melted you want yours. They do puff up but don't panic, they come back down as soon as you stop the machine. Also, be careful - don't touch the mallow; you'll fingers will become attached and it takes ages to get un-attached! I know from experience...



3. Once the marshmallow and chocolate has melted, you'll need to crush your candy canes. I did mine between a tea towel, you can do yours how you like. You could crush them quickly in a Nutri Bullet, but be sure to leave some big bits! 



4. Now spoon some of the chocolate onto the marshmallow and sprinkle with as much candy cane as you like. Top the two halves with the other two digestives to make two sandwiches. Drizzle the sandwiches with the chocolate, using the spoon and sprinkle with some more crushed candy cane. And Enjoy! It will get messy!




And if you're interested...
