Camping is a favourite family tradition in North Queensland. No matter the season up here, it’s perfect weather to gather up the tent or clean the caravan, relocate all the camping gear and prepare for days of relaxation and fun in the great outdoors. Sometimes, what can make or break a camping trip is the food! We know how hard it can be to prepare and cook good meals when camping (we’ve been there). Try out these traditional smores – trust us they’re delicious!
Smores are a traditional and delicious sweet treat to have while camping that the kids will love. You really only need a few basic ingredients – roasted marshmallows, pieces of chocolate, and biscuits. Plus, don’t forget the night time campfire to enjoy eating them around! It’s a must have.
280g white and pink marshmallows
400g McVitie’s original digestive biscuits or similar
150g – 250g chocolate (try and find chocolate that is thin and in large squares – ‘Lindt’ is a good brand to try).
Alternatively, you could use Nutella spread to replace the chocolate pieces.
Melt the marshmallows slightly by using the heat of a campfire. You can buy poles suitable for melting marshmallows over a fire at camping stores or you could go old school and find ‘the perfect stick’ around your campsite.
Place the toasted marshmallow onto a cracker and add a square piece of chocolate on top, then complete the creation by adding another cracker on top of that.
If you want, wrap the smores in tin foil as you go. This can help to keep them warm and give the chocolate inside each one more time to melt. Otherwise, eat as you go!
Tip: You can also buy digestive biscuits that are coated in chocolate – this provides two ingredients in one!
