How to Make: Smores

Updated: Jul 7, 2019

Seen smores? heard all about them? but havn't yet tried them? and just not quite sure what they're all about? The American camping classic, that has got you curious and mouth watering.. It's time you tried the fire pit desert phenomenon. But how? Us Aussies just don't have the same stuff as the states. We cant just duck to the shop from some graham crackers and Hersheys chocolate bars.. So we have done the hard job by perfecting the recipe and found the best local substitutes that YOU can grab from your local shop, to treat yo' self to this sweet snack by fire light.


  • Arnotts Marie Biscuits ( or McVities Digestive Biscuits )

  • Marshmallows

  • Chocolate of choice ( Recommend the Cadbury Fury Friends mini blocks are the perfect size, Lindt or ALDI chocolate bars. The thinner the chocolate, the better the Smore works )


1. Start your fire, gather around and let the good times roll..

2. Get yourself a random stick or marshmallow roasting rod, skewer your marshmallow on the end and roast away until crisp and gooey.

3. Grab two biscuits, place a piece of chocolate on the top of one biscuit, then place your hot gooey, freshly roasted marshmallow onto the chocolate and sandwich it by placing the 2nd biscuit on top.

4. Voila ! Enjoy that hot, sweet gooey mess as you sit by the fire, beneath the stars and make those memories that'll last a life time.

The Cove is a secret hideaway tucked into the Booderee National Park and surrounded by the incredible turquoise waters of Jervis Bay. With the surf on one side and the calm waters of Sussex Inlet on other, this really is Paradise. Come here to fish, surf, adventure, say “I do” or hand feed a roo, take part in a retreat, conference or event – its Paradise however your time is Spent . After a beautiful 13 kilometre drive through the rainforests of Booderee (Jervis Bay) National Park you arrive at Paradise - The Cove. The sound of the ocean replaces the noise of traffic, native wildlife abounds as kangaroos hop through the grounds and native parrots skim through trees, the backdrop is of forest not buildings. While The Cove can be used as a base to explore the historic surrounding districts, its relaxed atmosphere and tranquil beachfront location surrounded by Booderee National park lead most guests to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of swimming, bushwalking, boating, reading and in the evening meeting fellow guests at the central barbecue facilities. Put simply, just relaxing! All within an easy drive!
