Cooking time: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 170g butter
  • 150g dark chocolate (72% cocoa solids)
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 3 large eggs
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 85g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  2. Place the butter, chocolate and coffee in a bowl and melt over a pan of steaming water.
  3. Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy, then whisk in the melted chocolate mixture.
  4. Sieve together the flour and cinnamon and fold into the chocolate mixture with a metal spoon along with the Rainbow Drops and marshmallows.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. The top should be hard and cracking and the middle soft. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the tin and it is advisable to remove the greaseproof paper while the brownie is still just warm.
