It’s no secret that I really enjoy baking. Lately, I’ve been thinking how about how to manipulate some of my favourite sweet treats and bring them together…in one random thought, I came up with the idea of making brownies with a difference. Like most of the world, I love Cadbury Marvellous Creations™. Why not try to create a Marvellous Creations™ brownie by adding the goodies to chocolate cake? This is the marshmallows/Clinkers™/raspberry version.
125g butter or margarine
200g chocolate (obviously use Cadbury Dairy Milk™!)
80g caster sugar
185g plain flour
100g raspberry lollies (I used Allen’s Ripe Raspberries™, but hard candy would also be good)
100g Cadbury Clinkers™
- Preheat oven to 180˚C. Grease a 19cm x 29cm slice pan and line bottom and two sides with baking paper, extending these over the edge so it’s easy to pull out of the tin when cool. (It’s OK if your pan isn’t exactly that size).
- Weight your butter and chocolate, then add to a small saucepan and melt over low heat.
- When melted, add sugar and stir for 5 minutes (not all the time…just in between checking social media). Then remove from heat and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, beat your eggs.
- Now the fun part: if you’ve bought big marshmallows, cut them into smaller pieces with clean scissors or a knife. (This is sticky). Do the same with the raspberries (if they’re hard candy, put in a plastic bag or two and smash with a rolling pin/meat mallet). The Clinkers can be broken, cut in half or smashed into pieces. Your choice.
- Add cooled chocolate mixture to the eggs. Sift in flour.
- Now add your lollies! Mix and then spread into the pan with a spatula.
- Cook for 30-35 minutes until skewer comes out clean in the cake part.
- Cool in pan.
Hints & Tips
- For a richer chocolate flavour, use 100g milk chocolate with 100g dark chocolate.
- Go completely out there and use Marvellous Creations™ chocolate in addition!
- If you like your brownies very sweet, increase sugar to 100g.
- Clinkers™ are a chocolate coated lolly that come in three flavours that are pink/green/yellow. They taste a little like musk/fruit sticks to me. Substitute with your favourite lolly.
- If you buy small baking marshmallows, they’re more likely to hold together during cooking and you don’t need to cut them up!
- There will be lollies left over for another round.
