BBQ Waffle S'mores - a decadent desert on the barbecue!




When Iceland challenged me to use the #PowerOfFrozen and show how their products can ensure you are BBQ ready as soon as the sun shines I wanted to think outside the box. When it comes to barbecue time deserts often get neglected in a flurry of sausages, burgers, salads, buns, relishes and kebabs. I don't have the sweetest tooth so I'm pretty happy to indulge my savoury side on such occasions but my kids think otherwise and always have room for desert. I'd normally resort to ice cream or lollies however why not use the residual heat on the BBQ to cook up something deliciously decadent?






Since I've been working with Iceland on their Power of Frozen campaign my eyes have really been opened to the quality and variety of frozen food stocked. Yes there are the basics of peas, fish fingers, garlic bread and pizza but I've also discovered speciality meats and fish, convenient fruit and vegetable medleys, rice, grains and superfoods. Oh and plenty of barbecue favourites. As far as British Barbecues are concerned you have to grab the chance when the weather plays ball. This is where studious stocking of your freezer can play a part. Frozen food combined with Sunshine can make for a perfect BBQ. It also avoids a last minute dash to the supermarket when barbecue weather beckons (and the disappointment of finding the supermarket shelves bare as everyone else has had the same idea!) Next time you pop to Iceland for sausages and burgers be sure to grab some waffles, fruit and ice cream. The resulting creation will definitely leave you wanting s'more. 






BBQ Waffle S'Mores


Ingredients
100g Mini Marshmallows
Chocolate Sauce

Method
Defrost the Raspberries (can be done in the microwave if time is short)
Place your frozen waffles on a foil tray or double layer of tinfoil. You don't want them tasting of burgers!
Cook for a couple of minutes on each side until they are beginning to turn brown and crispy.
Place a handful of mini marshmallows into the holes on each waffle and continue barbecuing until they start to brown, melt.and slightly puff up.
Liberally squeeze over lashings of chocolate sauce.
Serve accompanied by the Raspberries and Raspberry Pavlova Ice Cream.


If you've now got the BBQ desert bug, take a look at these other ideas from myself and the UK's most northerly food blogger, Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary.

  15. Ooh these sound lovely, our dessert of choice after a BBQ is usually mini magnums but I think it might be time to branch out and try these instead. I'll have to stock up next time I do an Iceland shop.
