S'mores are a classic American favourite. You can toast the marshmallows on a campfire, BBQ or even under the grill to achieve a brilliantly gooey filling. Add a chunk of chocolate to the marshmallow and dip the biscuits in melted chocolate for an added indulgent twist. You can buy your own pre-made biscuits to save time or follow our recipe to make wonderfully light shortbread biscuits.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas mark 4). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. In a bowl add the butter, sifted flour and work the mixture with your finger tips to form crumbs. Make a well and add sifted icing sugar, the egg yolks and the vanilla extract. Mix the ingredients together until combined and forms into dough. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.


    This video shows you how to create your biscuit dough. 

    • 200g Unsalted Butter
    • 250g Allinson Plain White Flour
    • 100g Billington's Unrefined Golden Icing Sugar
    • 2 Free Range Egg Yolks
    • 1 tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
  3. After the dough has chilled, remove from the fridge and knead for 5 minutes. Roll the dough out to 5mm thickness and using a circular cutter, stamp out the biscuit shapes. Place on the lined baking tray and chill again in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  4. Bake the biscuits in the preheat oven for 10-12 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack.

  5. Melt half of the chocolate and dip the biscuits, partially covered them with chocolate. Place on a lined baking tray and keep to one side, allowing them to set.

  6. To make the marshmallow filling, either toast the marshmallows on a campfire or BBQ and then sandwich them between the biscuits or alternatively place the marshmallows (and a chunk of the remaining chocolate if you would like) on top of the biscuits and grill until the marshmallows begin to melt. Top with another biscuit and enjoy.

    This is not a proper S'more recipe. S'mores are made with graham crackers, not shortbread. The closest bought alternative in the UK are low-fat digestive biscuits. There are recipes on the 'net for graham crackers, which have less fat and sugar than a digestive, and are also used for crumb crusts in the US. If you are going to bake in order to make a S'more, you might as well bake graham crackers. The idea of S'mores made with shortbread is a total turnoff for me.
