Gorgeous recipe for chocolate, walnut and marshmallow brownies

I had never particularly been keen on ginger in anything sweet and then I was given a wedge of the most delicious sticky gingerbread a few years ago and my opinion changed, in fact I love ginger now…give me a ginger shot any day! Anyway what does that have to do with chocolate and walnut marshmallow brownies you may ask…well nothing really except I have been trying to recreate that sticky gingerbread to no avail, my waistline can’t take anymore, my purse is empty and the children are gingerbreaded out so I gave up and made these gorgeous brownies instead. And if anyone has that elusive recipe to share please do.

Squish the marshmallows into the brownie mixture for an extra decadent brownie treat

This recipe is a combination of some of my favourite things…ever. Chocolate, nuts and sticky pillows of soft flumpy marshmallows…what’s not to love. It’s not a recipe that will earn you brownie points with the sugar police (eeek I keep ‘trying’ to give it up) but you will make everyone around you love you just that little bit more.

Perfect for sharing, chocolate and walnut marshmallow brownies

And with Halloween on our doorstep and bonfire night not far behind, brownies make the ideal snack to hand around to give everyone a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. If you don’t like nuts… don’t add them, the brownies will still be deliciously moist and gorgeous. I’ve used a mixture of dark and milk chocolate because I find dark chocolate on it’s own a bit too sickly.

Making my yummy chocolate walnut and marshmallow brownies couldn't be easier
