Ok, so admittedly, this comes from a very old recipe that we have. My mum has used it for years and it is so worn and tattered. The recipe was then printed in an old primary school cookbook that the school made to raise money; me and my brother were famous before the age of 10. These brownies are your traditional gooey goodness, with an extra delightful chocolate ganache and marshmallow topping. Sound good? They are!
You can make the ganache whilst the brownie cooks and then clean up, which is definitely NOT just code for lick the hell out of the wooden spoon and pan. The ganache is simple: melt butter and chocolate together. Could this get any easier? Just before it finishes baking, or less than if you like it really gooey, pour over the ganache and then scatter over chocolate chips - because there just isn’t enough chocolate in a brownie - and mini marshmallows. You only have to wait another five minutes or less depending on your oven. I would also recommend sitting like a GBBO contestant on your kitchen floor to watch the brownie at this step because marshmallows are quick to turn from a beautiful, melty, gooey consistency to a ‘burnt the heck’ crispy, non-pleasant chewy texture.
I don’t want you get too excited but the brownie will need to cool because heated chocolate and marshmallows (that’s a lot of sugar) are hot! Cut into the recommended 8 or so squares if you can, or just in half if you’re feeling generous enough to share with someone, I won’t even judge if you just sit with the tin and a fork, and then…enjoy! Belissimo!

I will fully admit that I got distracted by my dog and almost, *almost*, had the marshmallows burning. Saved it just in time!
What do you think? Have a go and then show me your mouth-watering brownie pictures! If you can't get the ingredients for these, what else could you make with what you have in? Post pictures here, in the comments, or to either the Facebook page or Instagram and don’t forget to tag me!
Happy baking guys - hope you are all comforted with brownie goodness in these uncertain and strange times.
