Pint Sized Baker was provided samples of the Duchy Originals Shortbread, however all opinions are her own.
S’more are a hot topic these days!
They kinda seem to be the “in snack” for camping season and weekend firepits.
I remember roasting marshmallows as a kid and being impatient for the marshmallow to get toasty. My brother had NO patience and would just light the poor marshmallow in fire and then gobble it up. Being the older, more mature sibling, I sat there waiting for the marshmallow to get warm then hot then toasty and finally melty.
Marshmallows are so good when done MY way.
I wanna tell ya that I made these over an open fire while enjoying a relaxing evening with my family, but the honest truth is that I roasted these over my gas stove.
Technically, it was an open flame… A very small flame in my kitchen, yes, but these marshmallows toasted up with no problems.
Duchy Originals sent me a few boxes to try – “Highland All Butter Shortbread”, “Stem Ginger All Butter”, “Lemon All Butter Shortbread” and “Original Oaten Biscuits”.
I love all of their shortbread. I also love their packaging. Inside each box are two packets each containing 6 biscuits, so one pack stays fresh while the other pack is open.
These tea biscuits are made to be taken seriously and enjoyed while sipping tea and discussing economics.
Duchy Originals is also looking out for your best interest in health. Their Shortbread is
OU Kosher & Suitable for Vegetarians
No Antibiotics or Bovine Growth Hormones Used to Produce Butter
For all the reasons above, my husband and I really liked these tea biscuits. My 7 year old daughter on the other hand… well… let’s just say they weren’t “fun” enough for her.
So, to make the Original Oaten Biscuits a bit more kid friendly, I turned them into S’mores!
And do I really need to tell you how much we all enjoyed these?
We enjoyed these S’mores with a glass of milk while discussing her allowance.
All we needed was a change in perspective.
