Marshmallow Nut Brownies

A good break from the cakes and breads I's brownies. They are so easy to put together when you have all the ingredients in hand and tastes heavenly too. I made this previously to celebrate two of my aunts who became brownies have an emotional story to it .. and this is how I made it..

100 gms unsalted butter
1 Cup Semi sweet chocolate chips
Half cup Granulated sugar
Half cup light brown sugar
Half teaspoon salt( omit if using salted butter)
1 tablespoon Instant coffee powder or  Bailey's Irish cream
2 eggs  large
1 cup all purpose flour ( levelled)
Chopped nuts of your choice - almonds, walnuts or cashewnuts
Mini white marshmallows about 3/4 cup

  1. Pre heat oven at 180 degrees. Prepare a square pan lined with wax paper.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a bowl in  a microwave or on a double boiler until its clear of all lumps and is smooth and creamy.
  3. Add white sugar and the brown sugar with the Bailey's Irish Cream and salt and combine well.
  4. when the mixture is just warm to touch add the eggs and stir well.......never add eggs when the mixture is hot else they would get cooked.
  5. Add the sieved flour to the mixture and fold well - do not over mix - ensure it is all well combined.
  6. Mix in the nuts - I have used chopped cashews here.
  7. Bake for about 20 - 30 minutes. Insert a skewer to check and as for all brownies make sure there are crumbs sticking to the skewer - unlike what we do for cakes where the skewer must come out clean.
  8. Remove from heat - spread the marshmallows all over do not pack them tight - and put it right back into the oven for 2 minutes. The marshmallows would all swell up and likely to have a tinge of brown.  Remove from the oven and set it aside to cool. Cut into squares to serve:)
