S’mores dip

This makes an extra special treat for the kids, but we think the adults might be keen to get involved too. A sized-up, super chocolatey twist on the classic American campfire treat, which is perfect for dipping into with fresh fruit and biscuits. This s’mores dip will be gone before you can say ‘give me some more s’mores’.

Caramel marshmallow popcorn

For an extra indulgent hit, try combining caramel and marshmallow with your popcorn. Heat 2 tspb olive oil in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and coat 25g popcorn kernels in it. Cover, pop for 4 mins, then remove from the heat. Put 20g marshmallows into another saucepan over a gentle heat. Once they have melted, stir in 200g caramel, warm through, then drizzle over the puffed-up popcorn.
