a visit from the city cousins & some s’mores

We’ve got a full house for the weekend – the city cousins have come for a visit (and because they are competing in a local highland dance competition). The house is quiet at the moment; they’ve gone to the Scottish festival for the morning (and they took our kids too – yay!).

We don’t have much planned, just lots of kids playing, jumping on the trampoline, riding ponies and possibly swimming in the bay, if it gets hot. And if the weather holds, we’ll have a bonfire tonight. Maybe even some sparklers. Everybody likes sparklers.

Our favourite bonfire snack is, of course, S’Mores. But we cheat..

Easy Bonfire S’Mores

  • marshmallows
  • chocolate covered digestive biscuits

Toast marshmallows over coals. Sandwich one marshmallow between two chocolate covered digestive biscuits (chocolate side in the middle, of course). Eat.

    My friends and I definitely use the chocolate-covered cookie trick for our s’more’s too. It may be cheating but it sure does taste delicious and then there is an equal distribution of chocolate with every bite. Yum! Have fun with your day!

  2. I think ‘city’ cousins love to come to your place …a place out of the hectic life in a city…Diane

  3. have fun this weekend and thanks for the short, sweet, and simple recipe – to quote the Barefoot Contessa – “how easy is that?”

  10. Oh my lordie… using chocolate digestives! Brilliant. I can only find them in NY occasionally but as soon as I do this is what i’m doing.
