Well it's that time of year again. Time to nestle in with someone you love, time to purr and to make mushy sounds and ridiculous, dreamy eyes at one another. Or you could just cut to the good stuff and smash a warm marshmallow between a chocolate biscuit, grab a blanket for comfort and I'll leave the rest up to your imagination...
Now for those of you that live beyond the States, a s'more is basically a combination of a chocolate wheaten with a roasted melting marshmallow squished together in one big decadent delight. We don’t really celebrate this mouth watering treat down under however the USA love it so much they have dedicated a National S'mores day. I figure anything that is sweet and has an entire day dedicated to it must be worth checking out.
That said and done, maybe it's time we celebrated the humble Lamington, after all who doesn’t love a stale sponge smothered in crappy cocoa and dry coconut?
