Scale

Ingredients

  • 150g HobNob Biscuits (blitz into crumbs, closest I could get to Graham crackers)
  • 250g Unsalted Butter
  • 500g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Cocoa Powder
  • 100g Self-Raising Flour
  • 4 Medium Free-Range Eggs
  • 1 1/2 jars of Marshmallow Fluff (if you can’t get this, make a classic Italian meringue as you would for Baked Alaska as will be safer if you serve the cupcakes to children as the hot syrup ‘cooks’ the egg whites.)

Instructions

  1. Oven to 170C. With flouncy cupcake cases line a muffin tin, spoon in each case roughly 3/4 tbsp of the HobNobs crumbs into the base (for my first attempt, I spooned them in dry but think when I do them again I would add a few tablespoons of melted butter to the crumbs before spooning into the cases, to make more of a solid base.)
  2. I used my brownie mix on top which I wrote about in my Easter Chocolate post- but a quick refresher. In a large saucepan, melt gently the butter, sugar and cocoa powder until smooth. Fold in the flour and when cooled slightly, beat in the eggs, one at a time to make your brownie batter. (I should of added some choc chips to make this extra naughty….)
  3. I spooned on a couple of decent tablespoons of the brownie mixture into the cases, being careful not to disrupt the crumbs as I wanted a neat base to the cupcakes. Bake for 15-18 minutes, so the brownie is still gooey, as they will set a little bit more on cooling.
  4. FLUFF TIME!!! Having never used it before, I was unsure what to expect other than a sticky mess knowing me! I carefully spooned the marshmallow fluff into a disposable piping bag that I hadn’t cut the tip off and placed in a tall glass to act as a piping bag stand. It didn’t look like it would hold any piping design so when ready and the cupcakes were cooled down, I cut the pipping bag straight across and pipped a blob of the fluff in the centre of each cupcake. The fluff will spread out when being toasted so don’t disheartened if it doesn’t cover the whole cake.
  5. I unfortunately did’t have my blow torch to hand so preheated my grill to high and blasted the cakes whilst in the muffin tray to control it better. I went for a light golden colour but you can charred those babies if that’s your thing. The top was nice when straight from the grill (be carefully- hot sugar!) as the marshmallow will have a crisp shell when toasted (which it will lose the longer you store them) but they are tasty whenever you tuck in. A really quick easy recipe and you’ll wow your friends as they didn’t last long in my office!
