Bonfire Brownies

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 are a perfect Autumn dessert. Rather simply toasting marshmallows (nice, but yawn) by the inescapable bonfire this season, it’s all got rather exciting.

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!)

For my Bonfire Brownies you will need:

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)

  1. Make sure eggs are at room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 160C.
  3. Line a square tin with parchment paper.
  4. Melt the chocolate and butter gently in a bain marie.
  5. In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (minus the walnuts), then add in the chocolate-butter mix. Stir together.
  6. Lightly whip the eggs in a small bowl then add them to the chocolate mix. Beat lightly until silky.
  7. If using add the chopped walnuts and stir through.
  8. 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).
  9. Leave the brownie to cool, then cut into squares.
  10. 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!
