Sweeten Diwali with These Open Faced Parle-G S’mores

Open Faced Parle G S'mores
3 min read

Who here is addicted to s’mores?! The answer = ME…but with my open-faced Parle-G S’mores! I used to love being a kid and asking my mom to buy graham crackers, marshmallows and Hershey’s chocolate bars just so my sister and I could make smores on our stovetops!! It totally brings me back to the good old days.

Open Faced Parle G S'moresS’mores are obviously delicious with graham crackers, but today we are going to have them with Parle-G cookies instead, and we are going to leave them open! I love Parle-G, and I’m pretty sure every single South Asian household has a kitchen cabinet full of these little packets. There are a certain sweetness and homey feeling I get when I eat Parle-G, and that’s why I thought these would be a great addition to Diwali desserts this year.

I mean, clearly s’mores can, and SHOULD, be eaten year-round, but I’m sharing these right in time for Diwali so we can make some cute and easy desserts that take such little time and effort. It’s also a variation to your typical Indian sweets, which I’m pretty sure everyone can agree on. Party after party and it’s usually the same penda, jalebi, or kaju katri. Well, you can add some variety now!
