I don’t if it’s a Kiwi thing or just a family thing, but growing up S’mores didn’t feature in the list of treats to make – in fact it wasn’t until reading The Babysitters Club (quality 90s reading there!) that I even heard that they existed.
But despite this I definitely have an appreciation for the classic S’more. It’s not surprising really – anything that teams together marshmallow and chocolate is a winner in my books! But without a fireplace or regular camping trips S’more still don’t make much of an appearance in my life.
Then last week I spotted this pin while trawling Pinterest and knew I just had to give it a go – it just looked incredible! Why make S’mores one by one when you can make S’mores slice?
The trouble with the original recipe is that – as you would expect – it’s very American. While I could have popped out to the American store and bought the ingredients I (a) didn’t feel like making the trek and (b) couldn’t bear the thought of paying through the nose for the required graham crackers and corn syrup. So I decided to take a Kiwi twist on the recipe and adapt it to be made from classic Kiwi ingredients.
