A couple of weeks ago, Tim, Rachel and I popped into a car and drove down the Warrego Highway to Evonne's Farm for a bonfire weekend. There is something marvellous about the experience of chasing cows, Polish Chickens and their green eggs, stumbling onto a medieval festival in Esk and well sitting by roaring fire and making S'mores.
S'mores are an American treat that involves sandwiching a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate a layer of chocolate between two Graham Crackers. We all wondered what a Graham Cracker was and after some research, learned the equivalent is a digestive biscuit, which suited us we didn't really want to go through the fuss and bother of melting chocolate and smoothing it over a biscuit with our rudimentary outdoor tools.
So after some trial and error, my essential list of S'more pantry items include one packet of McVitie's Original Digestive, one packet of McVitie's Dark Chocolate Digestive and one bag of Pascall Mega Mallows. It's as simple as roasting the marshmallow over a small fire or coals, then sandwich it between two biscuits (one each of the aforementioned) and taking a dainty bite. Your biggest challenge will containing the molten ooze, keeping a roaring fire and entertaining your friends with horror stories. The most terrifying story of the night was the nurture and subsequent release of Justin Bieber. Horrible horrible stuff.
