Anyone who follows this blog has probably worked out that I try to make reasonably healthy recipes. However, I think there is always room for some filth in your life. A good basic brownie is hard to beat, and there are endless variations you can make. I like food with different textures, so when I saw a version of this from Yammies Noshery, I had to try to make them. Apart from the fact these taste like a little square of heaven, they’re also gluten free. So you can treat your intolerant loved ones to something other than a coconut macaroon. These are great for Halloween parties or judge because you feel like a bit of filth.
For the brownies
260 Grams White sugar
180 Mil Vegetable oil
1 Tsp Vanilla bean paste
200 Grams Cocoa powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
60 Grams Chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)
For the topping
180 Gram Bag of mini marshmallows
250 Grams Chocolate
160 Grams Peanut butter
75 Grams Butter
400 Grams Rice crispies
- Line a 9 x 13 inch baking tin, and preheat your oven to 180 degrees
- For the brownies, add the oil and sugar together and mix until we’ll combined. Whisk in the eggs, and vanilla, then add the cocoa powder and salt and mix until combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips, and pour into your lined baking tin. Bake of 17 minutes (if you prefer a more cakey brownie leave them in the oven for another couple of minutes)
- Take the brownies out of the oven and sprinkle the top with mini marshmallows, and return to the oven for another 8 minutes
- The marshmallows should have melted and be looking slightly toasted around the edged
- Allow to cool before adding the next topping (I didn’t wait and it was a nightmare to spread)
- For the crunch topping, put the chocolate, butter, and peanut butter in a large microwave proof dish.
- Microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir, taking care that the mix doesn’t burn
- When melted, add the rice crispies and mix until they are fully coated
- Spread the mix over the cooled marshmallow topped brownies and allow to set before slicing into small squares (these are seriously rich, and can always have another one if you can manage it)
