Top London executive chef, Tom Cenci, has agreed to share his personal recipe for his mouthwatering Choco Leibniz S’mores.
It might be the start of barbecue season, but the unseasonable chill has us all hungry for some ‘hygge’ vibes. Tom’s s’mores are the perfect toasted treat for both occasions. They’re a sumptuous way to round-off your next barbecue or dinner party, easy-peasy to pack and cook over a campfire on your next camping trip, or great for a cosy night in on the sofa. With a crunch of biscuit and layer of silky=sweet caramel topped with a thick layer of top-quality chocolate, Caramel Choco Leibniz make for a one-stop-s’mores-shop: just add marshmallow (and fire).
Tom says: “This is a really easy recipe to make, but takes some practice to get the perfect toasting effect on the marshmallow. You can use any flavour of Choco Leibniz for this recipe, but my personal favourites are the caramel ones. Experiment with each flavour for new combinations – like Orange Choco Leibniz with marmalade instead of peanut butter.”
Tom recommends using a real flame – a campfire or barbecue adds to the all-round effect, but a kitchen blowtorch works just as well. If you can’t get to a full-on fire, you can skip the marshmallow-roasting step and assemble the s’more before putting it in the oven until the marshmallow softens and the chocolate melts.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 pack of Caramel Choco Leibniz
- 1 tub of peanut butter
- 1 pack of big marshmallows
- Wooden or metal skewers
What To Do:
- Take a marshmallow and place onto a skewer, setting aside to use later (if you’re using smaller marshmallows, use two or three to cover the biscuit surface.)
- Take two Choco Leibniz biscuits and smear a little peanut butter over the chocolate side of each one.
- Place the marshmallow over an open flame and allow to toast. Watch it carefully, allowing it to caramelise on its outside, but not burn.
- Once you’re happy with it, slide the marshmallows off the skewer and sandwich between the two biscuits. Gently press together.
- Give it a few moments to cool slightly before devouring.
