S’Mores Kunafa

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.
