In the name of Heritage Day, foodie and author Naqiyah Mayat created this tasty braai spin on South Africa's beloved peppermint crisp tart. Why? "After you're done preparing meat and salads, the last thing you want to do is prepare a dessert." With their warm and puffy marshmallows, these s'mores are bound to get both kids and adults excited.


Bag of marshmallows

Packet of plain crackers

2 slabs of mint chocolate

Wooden sticks


  1. Simply thread a marshmallow onto a stick. Place it on the braai and watch that it doesn't burn. It only needs a minute over a moderate flame.
  2. Immediately place the marshmallow onto a cracker and insert a piece of mint chocolate right in the centre.
  3. Eat warm.

Tip 03 Tip 03

Don't overthink this dessert. Keeping it simple with a cracker and a piece of peppermint chocolate is very satisfying!
