Raspberry Marshmallow Brownies
Samuel’s friend, Ben, helped me come up with the idea for Raspberry Marshmallow Brownies. I love the way 8-year olds think.
I was going to make a brownie/raspberry cheesecake bar but Ben piped in that he does not like cheesecake. Samuel was eating marshmallows at the time and I thought they would work quite nicely with the raspberries and chocolate.
One of Samuel’s favorite recipes is my Marshmallow Monstrocity Cups. They look like a near explosion from the marshmallows but the taste is incredible. I was not interested in replicating the look, but borrowing the taste and adding to it was a whole different story.
When it comes to raspberries, I just can’t get enough of them. Raspberries have played a big part on Desserts Required. If you haven’t tried Brownie Raspberry Chambord Whipped Cream Trifle, Lemon Raspberry Cake, Raspberry Ginger Cake and Raspberry Cheesecake yet, what have you been waiting for?
Perhaps you were waiting for these Raspberry Marshmallow Brownies. Combining a childhood favorite, marshmallows, with chocolate and raspberries is pretty darn irresistible. The tough part is remembering you are supposed to share these with the kids!
