When only sugar will do

Colder days make me feel less guilty about indulging in sugar and stodge. Don't get me wrong, I have more than my fair share in summer too but somehow autumn days make it seem more acceptable! We had a barbecue last weekend and ended it with a UK version of s'mores. We enjoyed them so much we decided on a rerun in the kitchen with marshmallows, digestives and a grill.


No chocolate this time, but no-one seemed to mind.


I love wrapping up and eating outside as it gets darker, with plenty of wine and candles. Yum.

  1. I think that's what's nice about this time of the year too. Not too damp and miserable but fun just enjoying the dark. (There's something for you on my blog - dated 29 sept.)

  3. I'd never thought of doing them under the grill. What a brilliant idea. Did you put the digestive in too? I still think I need to get us some graham crackers though! K x

  13. That's incredible, we've been talking about how to make a UK equivalent of smores for days now (we're off camping next weekend for Big Sis' birthday and need to make sure we're stocked up on carbohydrates, in the interests of keeping warm you understand!)

  17. Ah yes, 'smores. Never heard of them before I moved here - very messy in the campfire, your method is probably better - although you can't eat them without chocolate crazy woman!!!

  18. oooh, they look yummy - all gooey and sweet (must put marshmallows on my shopping list!). We love wrapping up well and eating outside too. Last year we had a picnic supper on Guy Fawkes night - so we could be cheapskates and enjoy everyone elses fireworks!

  20. For some reason I always think that BBQ's are supposed to involved dressing up warmly and wool blankets ;-)
