Another wildly popular recipes of ours - for extra Bonfire Night coziness, try serving it warm as a pudding with hot chocolate sauce and vegan ice cream.
It's hard to imagine a fire without s'mores, and we know that these can be difficult for vegans and vegetarians because most marshmallows contain animal-derived gelatine. Fortunately there are plenty of options out there. Peta's guide to s'mores has advice on vegan marshmallows and graham crackers, and how to make your own. You can also read their 13 Best Vegan Chocolates for chocolate ideas. You can try Freedom Mallows or Dandies Marshmallows which are both vegan. Finally, try making your own Vegan Graham Crackers for the ultimate homemade s'more! If you're not exactly sure how to actually put the s'more together, here's a step-by-step guide to perfect s'mores!
