A classic campfire treat brought inside from the cold, using an oven to get the marshmallow centre toasty without leaving your kitchen

Tracking down vegan marshmallows can be a little tricky but Zacchary Bird would argue it’s time well spent to make these chocolate-marshmallow toasted biscuit sandwiches! Combine these with fresh strawberries and you'll never dream of a different dessert again. 

BONUS ROUND: take these to the next level and fry them in a sweet apple cider batter for DEEP FRIED S'MORES. Get that recipe right here!

Vegan S'Mores & Deep Fried S'Mores

Vegan S'Mores & Deep Fried S'Mores

  • Duration

  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


    • 8 McVitie’s Original Digestives Biscuits
    • 12 large, vegan-friendly marshmallows (I used Dandies)
    • 4 large squares of dark chocolate (or 8 of dairy-free milk chocolate)
    • Fresh strawberries (optional, to serve)


Preheat a grill or the broiler function in an oven. Place four Digestive or similar biscuits on a baking tray and top each with a square of dark chocolate. If you are able to use a dairy-free milk chocolate, you can fit on a few extra pieces as they will be less bitter.

Use your fingertips to lightly mush three marshmallows into each other so that they don’t roll away, and place them on top of a Digestives biscuit before repeating with the others.

Place the baking tray under the broiler for 3 minutes, or until the tops of the marshmallows are toasted.

Remove the tray from the oven, and while still hot and sticky, press the remaining Digestives biscuits onto the marshmallow - press down to finish the S’mores. The sticky marshmallow should ooze out slightly and adhere everything together - if not, give the s’mores a blast in the microwave with 5 second increments until they cooperate.

Serve with fresh strawberries or just scoff while they’re hot.
