Chocolate and marshmallow brownies

As we all know the whole point of brownies is they are supposed to be rich and gooey so why not go a step further? This is a simple brownie recipe with the added stickiness of marshmallows melted on top and a handful of chocolate thrown in for good measure. Eat a slice on its own or cut into small pieces to put into an ice cream sundae. So bake, enjoy and indulge just this once – or maybe again!

Equipment: Large saucepan, large mixing bowl, square baking tin 9in (23cm) greased and lined.


4oz (115g) Unsalted butter or baking spread
7½ oz (210g) Caster sugar
1tsp (5ml) Vanilla extract
2 Eggs
4½ oz (130g) Plain flour
1oz (28g) Cocoa powder
¼ tsp (1.25ml) Baking powder
¼ tsp (1.25ml) Salt
3oz (85g) Mini Marshmallows
3½ oz (100g) Milk Chocolate chips or bar broken into pieces


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4.
2. Melt the butter in the saucepan and leave to one side to cool slightly.
3. Stir in the sugar (it won't melt) and the vanilla extract. Then beat in the eggs.
4. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix altogether.
5. Pour in the prepared tin and spread out evenly.
6. Bake for around 20 minutes, remove from the oven and then scatter the marshmallows and chocolate chips on top.
7. Return to the oven for another 3 minutes until the marshmallows start to melt.
8. Lightly spread the marshmallows and chocolate across brownies and then leave to cool before cutting into pieces.

  1. My daughter is a huge marshmallow fan - I think she would love these, though I imagine they can be challenging to cut
