As the weather warms up and lockdown restrictions ease, inviting your friends over for BBQs in the garden is firmly back on the agenda.
You may have perfected your burger and sausage game over the years, and you might even have your go-to sides and salads on lock too, but one part of the great British barbecue feast that’s often overlooked is dessert.
With everything else going on, it can be easy to forget or not bother with a dessert, but leaving the final course to a mere afterthought might be the one thing letting down your al fresco dining game.
Thankfully, M&S has taken this dilemma into their own hands and come up with the perfect no-fuss solution, the Gimme S’more Brownie.
Heavenly just to merely look at, we were salivating before we even knew exactly what was in this delicious looking mess. Inspired by the classic American BBQ dessert of s’mores – chocolate and marshmallow sandwiched between two graham crackers which are then toasted over a fire so it all melts into each other – the M&S s’more brownie dessert is made up of a layer of indulgent chocolate brownie topped with crushed up biscuit pieces, milk chocolate and marshmallows.
Hot on the heels of the release of M&S’s genius cake jars, you simply grill it or pop it in the oven for 8 minutes to get it all warmed through and gloriously gooey, then grab a spoon and dig in – the ultimate chocolatey sharing dessert that everyone will love but took you literally no effort to knock up.
Instagram account @sweetreviewsuk has already given the crowd-pleasing s’mores-inspired dessert their verdict, saying: ‘If you’re looking for the height of naughtiness then this is it. After heating, the brownie has warmed through, the chocolate has melted along with the marshmallows and the biscuits are crispy. Eating this gets pretty messy (be prepared) we suggest you just tackle it with a spoon or two (if you are sharing) and have fun with it, we certainly did’.
Grab your M&S s’more brownie dessert in stores now for £4.50 each or as part of the 3 for £10 BBQ range.
