So I'm missing the US and as we're so close to bonfire night I thought I'd make a campfire necessity inside with a nice US beer to finish. While we don't have graham crackers here in the U.K, we do have some awesome digestive chocolate dipped cookies that are to die for. Making s'mores with these bad boys takes the game to a new level.

No disappointment - it really does taste like s'mores, but better! Personally, I'm used to graham crackers with my s'mores and cheesecakes, so I'd use a graham cracker crust for next time. But if you don't have any grahams kicking around, this does a pretty good job too!

This was a requested recipe, using free biscuits we've rustled up an easy dessert to enjoy this summer.

This is a simple, easy cheesecake recipe that I used for my friend's birthday cake but for the extra touch, I made my own cheesecake base! Enjoy!
