I love brownies, but then again who doesn't?

Sometimes a simple brownie won't cut it though. At first I thought about baking Slutty Brownies, you can never go wrong with chocolate, Oreos and some cookie dough. But I felt like trying something new.

There are two things I associate with autumn and cosy evenings: pumpkin pie and S'mores. Whilst I could have added some pumpkin puree to my brownie batter or even some actual pumpkin, I thought S'mores brownie was a safer bet.

I didn't end up baking a proper S'mores brownie purely because 1) we don't have Graham Crackers in the UK 2) I didn't want to fuck it up by using similar biscuits that are not the same 3) it was too much work. So... I decided to bake some yummy brownies and top them with toasted marshmallow. It was fab.

These are honestly super easy and quick to make. They were also very popular with my flatmates, their literal words were "this is the best thing you've ever cooked". So they were either really amazing or I am a very bad cook. I'll go with the former. 


1 cup sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter
100 g dark chocolate 
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla essence


Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a double boil, making sure you're constantly stirring. Once it's melted let it sit for a few minutes to cool down a bit. 

Add in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla essence and sugar. Slowly add the flour and cocoa powder and mix until it's all well combined. 

Bake at 180˚C for 20 min. 

Pour the marshmallows on top and grill for about 3-5 min or until the marshmallows are toasted. 

Let it cool before cutting into it as otherwise the melted marshmallows will go everywhere (speaking from experience. 

And enjoy!!
