How to make teddy bear s'mores


  • 1 pack of teddy bear shaped biscuits
  • 1 pack of ready-made puff pastry
  • 1 bar of chocolate - dark, milk or white
  • Optional: marshmallows


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C
  2. Cut the pastry into small rectangles
  3. Place two squares of chocolate on the top half of each section of pastry (if using marshmallows, swap out the bottom square of chocolate)
  4. Add one teddy bear biscuit on top of the chocolate
  5. Fold the bottom half of the pastry up over the teddy bear biscuit so only its head is visible
  6. Seal the folded edges by crimping with a fork
  7. Brush the top of the pastry with milk or an eggwash
  8. Place the bears on a lined baking sheet and cook in the oven for 12 minutes

Christina, who is based in New York, used Teddy Grahams to make this adorable snack. While not widely available in the UK, you can find them at dedicated American candy stores, such as King's Candy and American Candy Co

Or, you could also make these cute s'mores using a range of animal-shaped biscuits by purchasing a pack of Cadbury's Animals, which are widely available in supermarkets such as Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Iceland and Ocado.

Christina's followers were impressed by the recipe, with one commenting, "Oh how cute", while another said, "These are the cutest pastries I’ve ever seen!!!"
