“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!
- 112 grams or 1/2 cups unsalted butter
- 200 grams or 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Eggs
- 90 grams or 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 40 grams or 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 25 marshmallows (medium sized)
- 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.
- Melt the butter
- Whisk in the sugar
- Whisk in the eggs, one by one , followed by the vanilla extract.
- Add the flour, cocoa and salt and whisk until combined.
- Spread almost all the batter in your prepared baking pan.
- Press the marshmallows gently into the batter, spacing them evenly . They should be about halfway into the batter.Spread remaining batter on top.
- Bake at 180 C/ 350 F for 25-28 minutes. The top will be browned and a toothpick inserted will have few moist crumbs.
- Cool completely in pan, lift out and slice .
- These can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-4 days
- If you see the tops of the marshmallows browning too much , cover the top loosely with aluminium pan for the remainder of the baking.
- Don't worry , if the marshmallows swell up during baking, they ll settle down as they cool.
- Slice when chilled for the cleanest cuts.
- 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 !
Happy baking !
