Marshmallow Brownies


Marshmallow Brownies

When I was in the Philippines there is no need to bake at home as everything was cheaply available in a nearby specialty shop from Cakes at Goldilocks and Red Ribbon, Donuts at Dunkin Donut and Mister Donut, Filipino Pastries (mamon, ensaymada, Spanish bread), Cinnamon Rolls at Cinnabon’s, Pretzels at Auntie Anne’s , Cookies at Mrs. Fields, Empanada at Jamaican Patties even Brownies at Brownies Unlimited. Now in New Zealand it is a bit different as we don’t have the same luxury of having those specialty shops, while we have Bakers Delight  and Eve’s Pantry  which bakes really good stuff the options are so limited as they are General Bakeries rather than specializing in a certain baked good, which means if you want some Brownies your limited to the normal Chocolate Variant. There might be several specialty shops as well but they are not as easily accessible compared to the Philippines which everything is within a 5km radius, that’s why sometimes it is easier to make one at home like this marshmallow brownies.

Marshmallow brownies are a variant of a brownie which contains a hefty topping of marshmallow on top as well as walnuts and chocolate chips. It is follows the simple brownie recipe but on the last minutes of baking it is topped with marshmallows, walnuts and chocolate chips, this process will partly melt the topping and when cooled down gives another dimension of texture to this sweet cake. This is one of the variations of brownies that I know how about you do you know of any good variants of a brownie?

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp salt
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup walnuts + extra for topping, chopped
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips for topping
1 1/2 cup small baking marshmallows

Method

1. In a bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder and salt together. Put aside.
2. Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler not touching simmering water. Stirring frequently over low heat. Add 1 cup of sugar and continue to stir for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat then add vanilla extract.
3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and mix remaining sugar together. Once combined pour into the bowl of chocolate mixture gradually, stirring gently with a spoon or spatula.
4. Once the eggs and chocolate mixture completely combined gradually fold in dry ingredients. DON’T OVER MIX! spread walnuts on top if desire.
5. Pour the mixture into a non-grease baking pan. Bake for 28-35 minutes in a preheated 180 C.
6. Remove from oven then top it with marshmallows, walnuts and dark chocolate chips then put it back in the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until the marshmallows melts.
7. Transfer on a rack to cool and cut into squares. Serve.

  1. Delightful! I do indeed think marshmallow brownies are delicious–I posted some myself a while back when I experimented with them (http://kiwsparks.wordpress.com/2011/08/23/foodie-tuesday-you-know-im-just-a-big-marshmallow/)
    Now, if I were to truly make them as S’Mores brownies I’d be using graham flour. But they were quite tasty and got gobbled up all the same. Yours sound delectable, with the walnuts and all, and I would happily eat a half a pan of them in a heartbeat! (Regrets saved for later, if necessary.) :)

  2. My goodness – this looks so delicious! My mom loves brownies and we were talking today how much she missed eating brownies in the US (it’s not common in Japan). Your version looks too good and dangerously delicious…

  3. we dont have a normal oven. :( I dont know if my turbo oven can do this also.. people say that its possible but haven’t tried it yet. i love anything with marshmallows..
