When only a seriously sweet, ever so indulgent, entirely original dessert will do, s’mores kunafa is the answer. This dessert takes the best elements of kunafa (the crunchy, golden, buttery pastry) and adds a s’mores-inspired element in the form of peanut butter-infused chocolate ganache and lightly caramelised marshmallows. If that sounds complicated, fear not, our recipe walks you through every step.

Heat the oven at 200oC.
Separate the kunafa and stir it with sugar and cinnamon; then add the butter and rub them well.
In a 10 inch circular sheet, stack the kunafa and press it well. Put the sheet in the oven for 25 minutes until it is browned.
To prepare the Ganach, in a pot over the heat, heat the cream until it reaches the point before boiling. Pour it over the chocolate and leave it for 30 seconds; then stir them together. Add the peanut butter with chocolate and stir together until the mixture is incorporated.
Pour the Ganach layer over the kunafa; then cut the marshmallow pieces using scissors and stack them on the top. Put the sheet in the oven once more in the upper rack until it is browned; and garnish with dried roses.
