Baking S’mores Brownies….

Apart from the White chocolate blondies I made here I have never baked brownies, I think its because they’re one of those things that needs to be gooey and super chocolatey else it can easy resemble a dry chocolate cake.

I came across a recipe for S’more brownies from ‘In the Kitchen with Kate’ and had to test it for myself! The result, super delicious chocolate brownies with a twist so I had to share…

Ingredients

For the biscuit layer

  • 200g Digestive biscuits
  • 125g Unsalted melted butter

For the Brownie mix

  • 115g Unsalted butter
  • 150g Dark chocolate
  • 190g Brown sugar
  • 130g Caster sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 140g Plain flour

Topping

  • Large or mini marshmallows

Method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180 and line/ greese a square tin
  • Crush your digestives and add the melted 125g butter, mix thoroughly and set aside
  • Melt the 115g butter along with the 150g dark chocolate together in a bowl over boiling water
  • Once melted take it off the heat and mix in your 2 sugars
  • Add the vanilla and eggs and whisk well until its a shiny consistency
  • Sift in flour and stir but be careful NOT to over mix
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and then add the biscuit butter crumbs
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • Spread the marshmallows on top and bake for a further 5-10 minutes
  • Leave to cool and then slice!
