Marshmallow brownies

“You would be amazed by what you can give up, lose, or break, and yet still be a person who gets happy over brownies.”- Augustan Burroughs.

Another brownie recipe ! I will not tire of brownies . Making them or eating them . Ever .

By themselves, these are fudgy bites of chocolate bliss. Brownies worthy of “getting-over-breakover” status ! Top them with some marshmallows and they are simply out of this world! Ofcourse the marshmallows get toasted as the brownies bake . Melty marshmallows and fudgy chocolate are definitely a match to reckon with!

I used medium sized marshmallows spaced out on top and then drizzled some more batter on top , but you can just throw on loads of mini marshmallows and have a two – layered brownie .

But if you like your treats neat and clean , with prim and proper edges – please look away ! These are unapologetically uneven and messy . But sooooooo good!

  1. 112 grams or 1/2 cups unsalted butter
  2. 200 grams or 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  4. 2 Eggs
  5. 90 grams or 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  6. 40 grams or 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  7. 1/4 tsp salt
  8. 25 marshmallows (medium sized)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F. Line a 8 x8 inch square baking pan with foil or parchment so that it is longer than the edges of the pan atleast on two opposite sides.
  2. Melt the butter
  3. Whisk in the sugar
  4. Whisk in the eggs, one by one , followed by the vanilla extract.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa and salt and whisk until combined.
  6. Spread almost all the batter in your prepared baking pan.
  7. Press the marshmallows gently into the batter, spacing them evenly . They should be about halfway into the batter.Spread remaining batter on top.
  8. Bake at 180 C/ 350 F for 25-28 minutes. The top will be browned and a toothpick inserted will have few moist crumbs.
  9. Cool completely in pan, lift out and slice .
  1. These can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-4 days
  2. If you see the tops of the marshmallows browning too much , cover the top loosely with aluminium pan for the remainder of the baking.
  3. Don't worry , if the marshmallows swell up during baking, they ll settle down as they cool.
  4. Slice when chilled for the cleanest cuts.
  5. If you want to make homemade marshmallows , you'll love my easy corn syrup and glucose free recipe!

A good batch of brownies are my undoing. So if I say that these are in a league of their own , you HAVE to take my word for it ! Toasty marshmallows atop chewy fudgy brownies – fantastic !
