Strawberry Fluff and Reese's peanut butter cup brownies

The very nice people over at American Soda sent me some delicious freebies – American sweets and chocolates! Instead of doing a post about the chocolate itself, I decided to use some of them as ingredients for these delicious brownies. The fluff and Reese’s cups adds a delicious chewy crunchy texture to the top of the brownie, whilst the inside remains slightly gooey – exactly how a brownie should be!

{Makes 12 squares}

55 mins – Prep time: 20 mins – Cooking time: 35mins

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate (make sure it’s got a good % of cocoa in it)
  • 120g butter
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 180g granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 140g plain flour
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 3 Reese’s peanut butter cups *
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) Strawberry fluff *
  • 12 Hershey’s kisses *

* Available from American Soda

Instructions

Oven temp: 175°C/350°F

  1. Line an 8″ (20cm) square pan with foil then grease it using a little oil.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces in a bowl along with the butter and melt together over a pan of boiling water.
  3. Whisk in eggs one at a time, then stir in the sugar bit by bit.
  4. Sift in the flour bit by bit, the mixture will become quite stiff.
  5. Pour half of the mixture into the pan. Using half of the Strawberry Marshmallow Fluff, drop dollops of the mixture into the brownie mix and swirl a little using a fork.
  6. Pour the other half of the mixture on top and repeat dropping the dollops of fluff and swirling..
  7. Smash the Reese’s cups and sprinkle over the top, and drop in the Hershey’s kisses, pushing them in a little so they go beneath the surface of the mixture.
  8. Give one last little swirl to the batter, then bake in the oven for around 35 minutes (my oven runs a little hot so this may take longer). It will go a little crusty on the top but a cake tester in the middle of the mixture will come out clean.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely in the pan. Then slice. They also taste great warm with a little ice cream!
