S’more more more.. I love S’mores. Banana S’mores, regular s’mores..ice cream sundae s’mores and today my Nutella Brownie S’mores. I could go on. Years ago this was very much an American snack, I would read about it as a teen in my Sweet Valley High books and watch them being made around campfires in American TV programmes and alway wonder just what they were like. Now they are everywhere, I know lots of people who make them whenever they have a BBQ or bonfire and I embrace the S’more love.
The original s’more is made with a Graham Cracker ( thats Gram not Greyyham UK readers) a large marshmallow and chocolate and is grilled or cooked on a BBQ or in/over a campfire. My take is with Digestive biscuit base ( the closest we get over here to a Graham cracker ), a Nutella brownie centre and a toasted marshmallow topping and it is divine. Yes it was made in an oven rather than a BBQ but if it makes a difference I ate it outside in the late evening sunshine.
The brownie recipe I use in this isn’t my favourite brownie recipe ( you can find that here ) but I have made it before ( read here ) its simple and this recipe is all about the simplicity – six ingredients in total which considering it has three layers is pretty good!
Nutella Brownie S’mores
You will need:
10 Digestive Biscuits
100g Salted Butter
1 large egg
35g Self Raising flour
1 cup of mini marshmallows
Preheat your oven to 180c and grease and line a square baking dish. Crush your biscuits ( I place mine in a sandwich bag and bash it with a rolling pin ), melt your butter and mix them together well. Press the mixture into your dish and flatten with the palm of your hand. Mix your nutella, egg and flour together until smooth and pour onto your biscuit base – don’t try and smooth it over too much or it will break up your base. Bake for 20 minutes until your brownie is set but still gooey. Remove from oven and top with marshmallow and pop under a grill for a few minutes until bronzed or use a blowtorch if you have one. Leave to cool for a few mins and then dive in while the topping is still soft and sticky.
The top is gooey and burnished, the middle slightly fudgy and the base a little salty and crumbly which I loved!
