S’more are such a wonderful and simple dessert whether it’s over a campfire or in the kitchen. These s’more pots are a more sophisticated version of a s’more having a crumbly digestive base, homemade salted caramel, whipped chocolate ganache and a toasted marshmallow meringue.
The salted caramel is a sauce I have been making for years and it is incredibly simple and is fool proof. The salted caramel sauce recipe can be found here and only contain 4 ingredients. So if you want, you can make up a big batch because you will probably end up eating it out of the jar!
This dessert will make 3 large portions but could stretch to 4 smaller portion. However, you could make it in one large bowl instead of individual portions.
Even though I’m not from the US, s’mores used to be a part of my childhood when going on camping trip sitting round an open fire toasting marshmallow.
