Smores Recipe – Dessert For Camping and Glamping

Here’s a smores recipe for your next camping or glamping trip that everyone will love.

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 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 bought the tray inside the camper trailer. I took the top cookie off the smores. 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.

These s’mores were awesome! As much as I don’t like to love junk food, I have to say I loved these! Forevermore I will be packing S’mores ingredients for our camping trip.

Now I’m a little worried about what American’s think of my story on how to make Smores in Australia? Is this a reasonable approximation of an American S’more. Is it okay to cook the Smores under the broiler or grill?  Please let me know what you think?
