Marshmallow and White Chocolate Blondies

I came across a recipe for marshmallow and white chocolate brownies a while back and had it saved in the "to bake" section of my internet favourites. However, most recipes I came across were aimed at Americans and one of the ingredients in particular (butterscotch chips) proved difficult to find in Ireland.

Over the weekend I decided to give it a try and made a version of the blondies that could be made easily by those of us outside the States. I replaced the butterscocth chips with fudge chunks and it worked well. They were very, very sweet which in a way was a good thing because it meant I didn't scoff the whole plate myself. They went down well anyway when we had friends over for dinner as a post-dinner treat with a cup of tea. They're definitely worth a try!


60g butter
85g fudge drops
100g flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
150g brown sugar (I used demerera because that's what was in the cupboard but I think muscovado would have been nicer)
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
100g marshmallows
100g white chocolate chips
a dash of milk (if needed)


Prepare a deep baking tray by lining with baking parchment.

Melt the butter and fudge drops over a medium heat. It's not possible to mix the butter and fudge together completely, there will still be some separation but with vigorous mixing you can get it fairly well combined.

In a bowl, add the dry ingredients - the flour, salt, sugar and the baking powder

Mix in the melted butter and fudge to the dry ingredients - you will get a crumbly, dry mixture

Stir the egg and vanilla into the mixture.

Add the white chocolate chips and the marshmallows.

Add a dash of milk if the mixture is still too dry (you should be able to pour it easily into a baking tray).

Pour into the prepared baking tray and bake for 20-15 minutes at 180C until the middle of the mixture has set (test with a skewer)

Allow the mixture to cool before cutting.
