S'mores Brownies

OH HELLO, marshmallows, digestives AND chocolate. Now this is my kinda recipe! I didn't really know what a 's'more' was until quite recently. I also didn't know what a Graham Cracker was until recently (the American equivalent of a Plain Digestive biscuit)
So, these things are DAMN GOOD and I will probably be making them again tonight...cannot get enough of the pesky things. The marshmallow gives a soft texture to the biscuit and the chocolate goes perfectly with both. The texture comes out as more of a light cake than a thick, chocolatey brownie as you'd expect - but I think that's what makes these bad boys even better.

[Adapated from Joy the Baker]

All you need is:
145g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
225g butter
200g chocolate

5 large eggs

275g brown sugar
200g granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
150g digestives (I used reduced fat), crumbled with your hands
As many mini marshmallows as you like (or 12-15 big ones)

First things first, preheat the oven to 175 (fan assisted) and grease a rectangular baking tray with high sides (9x13 inch)

Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl

In a seperate bowl, melt the sugar and chocolate over hot simmering water. I add marshmallows here too.

In a seperate bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla.

Stir in dry ingredients

Stir in chocolate mix 

Fold in digestives

Pour the mix into your baking tin and scatter marshmallows

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a baking prong comes out clean when the mix is prodded in the centre.

Leave to cool for at least 20 minutes.

Then dig in. They taste incredible.

And unforunately (or rather, fortunately)...I discovered this:
A disgestive biscuit, a generous helping of Nutella and melted marshmallows - a worrying, new favourite snack!

These are some of the best and tastiest brownies I've made so please make sure you give them a try!
