Fathers Day Treat - Chocolate & Marshmallow Brownie

Today I'm having a bit of a lazy day so I'm going to give you a brownie recipe which was sent to me by the Flour Advisory Bureau to keep any Dad sweet next Sunday (that's Father's Day, in case you've forgotten), or the "Day After Take That" as it's currently known in Maison Baba.  There's nothing nicer than giving a gift you've made yourself and this recipe is actually really easy, so even if you've never baked before, this won't cause you any problems.

Chocolate & Marshmallow Brownies

125g Dark Chocolate, broken into squares

150g Butter
285g Caster Sugar
3 Eggs
1tsp Vanilla Extract
150g Mini Marshmallows
100g Milk Chocolate Chips
125g Plain Flour
Icing Sugar (for dusting)

Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4/180C & grease a deep baking tray with a little bit of butter or spray oil.

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a pan over a low heat.  I'd suggest melting the butter first, adding the chocolate & letting it sit for 2 minutes before stirring. This makes everything melt & combine much more evenly.

Now remove from the heat, add the caster sugar and beat till it dissolves.

Add the eggs one at the time, then the vanilla, marshmallows and chocolate chips.

Stir in the flour and pour into the greased tin.

Bake 30 minutes or until a skewer or small knife placed in the middle should come out almost clean.  Be careful not to overcook or it will become too chewy.  Allow it to cool in the dish, cut into squares and dust with icing sugar.
