Dense and truffley in texture, these brownies are finished off with a lightly fluffy topping of marshmallows and a drizzle of chocolate sauce for extra indulgence. Deliciously chocolately, this easy recipe will make an impressive dessert

Ingredients

  • 100g 70% cocoa chocolate

  • 350g dark brown sugar

  • 130g self raising flour
  • 100g mini marshmallows
  • Chocolate sauce to drizzle

These brownies taste even better the day after baking, so once they have cooled, wrap up the tin and store for 24 hours before slicing as above. For more chocolate flavour, add 75g milk, plain or white chocolate chunks to the mixture with the flour.

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Fan 160°C/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm rectangular cake tin with baking parchment. Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl; add the butter and set over a saucepan of barely simmering water until melted. Remove from the water, stir in the sugar; cool for 10 mins.
  2. Gradually whisk in the eggs to make a thick glossy mixture. Sift the flour on top and carefully fold the ingredients together until well combined.
  3. Transfer to the prepared tin, smooth the top and bake in the oven for about 30 mins until the mixture is risen, has a slight crust yet is still slightly soft underneath. Scatter or arrange the marshmallows on top and leave the brownies to cool in the tin.
  4. To serve, slice into 15 portions and drizzle with chocolate sauce.

i am watching masterchef junior and omfg. this kid

i’m so glad someone posted something from this show. last  night i watched this with jacob. he has already expressed some interest in being a chef (at his age he wants to be everything). but seriously, he always wants to make up dishes. nothing like these kids were cooking YET. 

when we got home he insisted that he needed to make a dessert and hijacked the cake mix i had for my nephews bday cake. he followed the directions on his own. i only helped when he asked me to.  he cooked them in a cupcake pan and after they cooled topped them with chocolate sauce, strawberries, and whipped cream. they were delicious. 

today at the grocery he made me purchase a pumpking which he intends to cook. i’m not sure what he is going to try to do with it but i’ll let you know how it goes.

It’s easy to create delicious ice cream sundaes at home with just a few good quality ingredients. You’ll need to buy the more expensive luxury ice creams as cheaper soft scoop varieties will melt too quickly. Prepare the ice cream scoops in advance by scooping onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment then place in the freezer for a couple of hours to really firm up. Chill the glasses in the fridge for an hour and assemble the sundaes just a few minutes before serving. Top with coloured sugar sprinkles or white chocolate curls instead of the chopped nuts, if preferred.

Ingredients

  • 150g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 50g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 100ml double cream
  • 1 litre vanilla ice cream
  • 1 litre chocolate ice cream
  • 1 large banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1tbsp chopped mixed nuts
  • Chocolate dipped wafers, to serve

Add a splash of orange liqueur or Irish cream liqueur to the chocolate sauce for an adult version.

Method

  1. To make the chocolate sauce, place the chocolate, butter, syrup and cream in a pan and heat very gently, whisking all the time until the chocolate and butter have melted. Whisk together until smooth and glossy. Remove from the heat and cool for 15-20mins, whisking occasionally.
  2. Scoop the ice creams into four large sundae glasses along with the sliced banana. Spoon the chocolate sauce over the ice cream and sprinkle with the chopped nuts. Serve immediately with chocolate coated wafers.
