Is it just me or do American’s LOVE Smores? In Australia we hear so much about S’mores on movies and television series that I have always been rather curious. I figured Smores must be a taste sensation if so many Americans love them.When we go camping we usually just toast marshmallows on the fire.  But I liked the idea of trying this campfire dessert. My problem was, I really didn’t know how to make Smores in Australia.

I knew I would need to modify the ingredients a little as we don’t have graham crackers in Australia. I took a look at Graham crackers on the internet. They seemed to be much like our digestive cookies. From past experience I knew that Digestive cookies come in a chocolate coated version.

My solution to How to make Smores in Australia was looking rather simple. I used chocolate coated digestive biscuits and sandwiched two marshmallows between the two cookies.

My trial run of this iconic American snack was during a recent camping experience at Pebbly Beach. I tried to cook my Aussie Smores on the campfire but it was a total failure. The marshmallow didn’t toast or melt. I gave one to the kids to try, they complained that it was raw!

Instead I brought the tray inside the camper trailer. I took the top cookie off the s’mores. I put the base cookie, topped with two marshmallows under the camper grill.  The marshmallows were charred and squishy in no time. I topped each sticky, sweet s’more with another cookie and offered them to the group around the campfire.
