It seems my children’s imagination needs few prompts. They were recently sent a bundle of Num Noms and asked to may some Crazy Creations. It didn’t take long for their ideas to start flowing.Num Noms Series 3 includes themed Starter Packs. The children received the Marshmallow and Fresh Fruits set.
Which of course, especially because Sara S’mores was included, meant the children just put the two things together and came up with Fruit S’mores S’mores are at the top of the children’s minds at this time of year.
They’ve already started camping in the garden at weekends. S’mores make the children think of toasting marshmallows on the campfire. Although when we’re camping we rarely get as far as creating the s’more, so eager are they to eat the marshmallow from the stick. At home we were free to get started with a shopping list and a trip to the supermarket.
As it was a bank holiday weekend a few more treats than usual fell into the shopping basket.My favourite biscuit by far for S’mores is Bahlsen’s. It’s got a really thick layer of chocolate which is perfect for toasted marshmallows. I much prefer the mallow melting the chocolate with the biscuit staying crunchy and not disintegrating. The children aren’t as fond of the crunch, but they get past anything where there’s chocolate and marshmallow. We started with everyone’s favourite fruit. E’s going through a mango stage at the moment. There wasn’t any left by the time we got to making the s’mores.
And these were the most special treats:I knew the chocolate was unlikely to go gooey as we were melting the marshmallow rather than toasting. So of course I had to add some extra jars of yumminess to our cupboard.
