To celebrate South Africa's rich traditions and cultures for Heritage Month, we partnered with Capital Hotel School and asked their chef students to create unique dishes based on Mzansi's traditional favourites. This recipe for deconstructed s'mores is by Boitshoko Motsaasele and Thato Molise.


Whole packet of Tennis Biscuits

15 marshmallows

63ml cream

10g butter

1 apple

3g sugar

1g salt

Berries for garnish


  1. Crush the biscuits completely until they resemble fine crumbs.
  2. In a pan, heat the butter then add 15ml cream and biscuit crumbs – leave a bit to sprinkle over the s'mores at the end.
  3. Add sugar and salt, and mix until combined. Remove from heat.
  4. In another pan, heat the remaining cream. Add the marshmallows and allow to melt. Stir after 5 minutes.
  5. Use a mould or cup and add the heated crumbs as a base. Remember to apply pressure.
  6. Cut thin apple slices and place in the mould. Ensure they overlap each other slightly (the mould should not be visible where the apples are placed). 
  7. Add in the berries.
  8. Add your melted marshmallows.
  9. Add your leftover crumbs on top.
  10. Allow to cool and set in the fridge for 90 minutes.
  11. Remove from moulds, serve and enjoy.


Tip 01 Tip 01

Use different marsmallow flavours to spice up your s’mores tart.

Tip 02 Tip 02

Make sure to spray your moulds with non-stick spray, or line them with baking paper so the s'mores don’t stick.

Tip 03 Tip 03

You can be creative with your crust: use ginger, Marie or Oreo biscuits.
