These deeply chocolatey bonfire brownies are delicious wrapped in a sweet, soft coat of toasted marshmallow. You even get some fireworks in your mouth with a topping of popping candy! They make a fun dessert idea for Bonfire Night, or Firework Night if you prefer. Either way, marshmallow brownies are awesome to eat.
They are a perfect Autumn dessert. Rather simply toasting marshmallows (nice, but yawn) by the bonfire this season, it’s all got rather exciting. Making the brownies is really easy and coating and toasting them is the fun (albeit sticky) part! I like to give this challenge to my husband who loves fun things to cook on a campfire.
I’ve added some Autumnal walnuts to the recipe, but if your loved ones prefer brownies simply soft and chocolatey leave them out (like us!).
How to make Bonfire Brownies
- 250g unsalted butter
- 200g 70% Dark Chocolate
- 90g Cocoa powder
- 65g Plain White Flour
- 1/2tsp Fine Salt
- 350g Golden Caster Sugar
- 4 large free-range eggs
- 100g Walnut Halves, chopped (a lovely Autumn touch, but miss them out if, like my lot, you prefer them plain)
- 2 x 213g tubs of Marshmallow Fluff
- Popping candy to decorate (I used a mixture of plain and chocolate coated)
Make sure eggs are at room temperature.
- Preheat oven to 160ºC.
- Line a square tin with parchment paper.
- Melt the chocolate and butter gently in a bain-marie.
- In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (minus the walnuts), then add in the chocolate-butter mix. Stir together.
- Lightly whip the eggs in a small bowl then add them to the chocolate mix. Beat lightly until silky.
- If using add the chopped walnuts and stir through.
- Add the finished mix into the tin and bake for 30 minutes (if you have time for it to set overnight) or 40 minutes (if you need it in good shape the same day).
- Leave the brownie to cool, then cut into squares.
- Either place your grill on or heat up your wood fire.
11. Place a portion of brownie on a suitable utensil and pipe marshmallow all round the brownie.
12. OR place the coated brownie on some foil and place under the grill.
13. Brown to your liking (it’ll happen quickly).
14. Sprinkle on the popping candy while hot so they stick.
Where as hubby ate his warm from the fire and straight off the board, I opted for a more gentile glass bowl. Either way, get stuck in!
Whizz pop BANG!
Happy Bonfire Night!
