I don’t often blog about Brownies – They feel like a bit of cheat as they are so easy. Brownies are definitely my go to bake if I need something sweet in a rush. And Oh My! these are delicious!
I’ve given approximate guidelines for the Dulce de Leche and Marshmallows but go for your life, sprinkle liberally. Who is to know?
My tips for perfecting brownies are:
* Baking Parchment – Never Greaseproof paper, you’ll be picking it off the brownies for weeks.
* Silicone Tin – No idea why, it just works.
* Take them out of the oven 2 minutes before you think they are done.
Dulce de Leche Marshmallow Brownies
|Prep time||10 minutes|
|Cook time||25 minutes|
|Total time||35 minutes|
|Meal type||Dessert, Snack|
|Misc||Child Friendly, Serve Cold, Serve Hot|
- 10oz Butter
- 5oz Caster Sugar
- 7oz Light Brown Sugar
- 4 Medium Eggs
- 5 tablespoons Golden Syrup
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 5oz Plain Flour
- pinch Salt
- 5 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 5 tablespoons Dulce de Leche
- 1 Handful of Mini Marshmallows
|Preheat the oven to 180C and line a silicone tin (I use 9" square) with Baking Parchment|
|Using an electric mixer, whisk the butter and sugars until well combined|
|Add the eggs, one at a time whilst mixing on a medium setting|
|Turn the mixer off and add the syrup and vanilla whilst stirring with a spatula|
|Fold in the flour, salt and cocoa until combined|
|Pour into the tin and spread out evenly - this is a mixture that doesn't rise so you don't need to leave a hole in the centre|
|Spoon over the Dulce de Leche - If your hand slips and you manage to add more don't worry ;-)|
|Sprinkle over the marshmallows and bake for 25 minutes - check how it is going after 20 minutes and reduce the temp if the edges are starting to catch|
|Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack|
|Cut into even squares and enjoy with a cuppa|
