The marshmallow brownies are totally outside of my comfort zone. As all brownies they should be be gooey, but I always live in fear of underbaking them (can you even underbake brownies?). The marshmallow top layer calls for caramelization, but I was so terrified to burn them.
But again, we only live once and it’s worth trying new things.
And I do try new things. When I was telling lately there is a lot of going on, I meant for example that I’m just moving jobs and this cake was a way of saying thank you to my lovely coworkers that I left cakeless.
So if you feel like spoiling somebody, especially if they love marshmallow and chocolate – try those.
