Smores Brownies and dreaming of summer

It's spring, the days are longer, the flowers are blooming and there is significantly less chill in the air. I won't lie, spring is not my favourite season. It's confusing; days are warm one minute and frozen the next and I find myself spending far too much time chilled because I mistakenly decided against a scarf or boiling because I mistakenly wore one. The best parts of spring are easter and the approaching summer. This Easter I plan on making a lot of delicious chocolate based goodness but in the mean time I am dreaming of summer, barbeques and smores.


These smores brownies are a delicious combination of the flavours you love and remember from campfires and barbeques. The biscuit base and sprinkles are crisp and buttery and the marshmallow are gooey and sweet. Combining that with a deep rich chocolatey brownie and you have a perect dessert.



Smores Brownies

200g dark chocolate
150g butter
250g caster sugar
60g cocoa powder
80g plain flour
1 tbsp yoghurt
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

300g digestive biscuits/graham crackers
75g butter melted

500g mini marshmallows

1 - Preheat your oven to 170'/325/gas mark 3. Break up your biscuits until you have crumbs and melt
      the butter in a saucepan.

2 - Pour the butter over the crumbs and mix well. Then press the cookies into the base of a roasting
     dish. Pour any left overs into a seperate pie dish.

3 - Bake the base for 15 minutes. Remove the extra biscuit crumbs and let cool.

4 - Melt the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water.

5 - Remove from the heat and add the sugar and cocoa powder and stir to combine.

6 - Add the vanilla extract, yoghurt and flour. Then finally add the eggs and stir well.

7 - Pour over the base and return to the oven for 30-40 minutes.

8 - Remove from the oven and immediately pour the marshmallows on top. Slice and leave to cool

Then just enjoy =)
