I was sitting here today and I thought to myself . . . I want something scrummy . . . something rich . . . something chocolatey. And then I thought . . . what if I bake my favourite brownies, in a tart pan and then cover them with marshmallows and a fudge frosting . . . I wonder what it would taste like
I have only three words for you.
OH - - - MY - - - GOODNESS!!!
Have you ever eaten anything so incredibly scrummy that the very first bite sent you into spasms of delight . . .
so incredibly moreish that you can't utter any words . . . only sounds . . .
Sounds like . . . . mmmmmm . . . . ooooooohhh . . . . nnnngggghhh . . . .
and in between . . . . only the sounds of your fork hitting the plate . . . again and again????
Imagine a fudgy mouthful of rich moist chocolate brownie . . . stuffed with toasted pecans and then topped with oooey, goooey, sweet marshmallow . . . all smoothed over with a rich chocolate fudge frosting.
Yes . . . this is heaven in every bite. Okay, so this has been a bit more than three words . . . but well, I am sure you'll forgive me.
Now, go make this NOW!

Delicious fudgy brownie bottom topped with marshmallow and a tasty chocolate fudge icing. Gorgeous!
