Love Food Box: S’more Brownies

DIY S’more Brownie Biscuits from Love Food

Photography & Review by Gabriella 

I’m not going to lie – I may call myself a foodie but when it comes to the kitchen I’m far from a domestic goddess. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that I’m a little culinarily challenge when it comes to the simplest of tasks such as baking a cake…
That’s why I was more than a little grateful to receive a Love Food Box in the post. The handy little box contained all the pre-measured ingredients that I needed to create a batch of my own s’more brownie biscuits. So I crossed my fingers and toes and I hoped for the best….

How to Make Them

I was pleased to learn that baking these beauties wasn’t as hard as it seemed – especially when half of the work had already been done for me in terms of measurements. I don’t want to post all of the baking steps online – as that doesn’t seem fair to those who’ve legitimately bought their own box – however here is the basic outline of what I did:

I started by melting the butter and larger bag of chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of just simmering water. When melting chocolate this way make sure the bottom of your bowl doesn’t touch the water. Also, you may want to invest in a slightly nicer glass bowl that the embarrassing seventies throwback you see in this picture…

While your chocolate is melting start to beat the egg and dry ingredients in a bowl until it’s a pale and thick consistency.

Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and fold it in before sieving in the flour and folding again.

Drop the batter onto lined trays, a spoonful at a time. My batter made 16 cookies, which ultimately makes 8 larger s’more biscuits in total. Bake those biscuits until they look roughly like the photo below.

Pro Tip – leave plenty of room in between the cookies on the tray as they will spread during baking!

Turn off the oven and put the grill on high. Flip half the cookies upside down and pile the marshmallows high..

Place the biscuits under the grill until the marshmallows have melted and bubbled up. Place the smaller bag of chocolate into a bowl of hot water, leave for a minute to melt.

Snip off the corner of the bag and drizzle the chocolate onto the marshmallows. Sandwich the remaining cookies on top and enjoy!

Overall Thoughts

The Sm’ore Brownies came out looking fantastic even if I say so myself.  I’ll admit, I was a little dubious about my ability to craft something that looked remotely like the versions I’d seen on the Love Food Instagram account but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was. Ok so they were a little rough around the edges and a tiiiiny bit burnt in places, but that’s all part of the charm right? Throughout the baking process they smelled amazing and once the biscuits were fully assembled I was pleased to find that they weren’t overly sweet despite appearances.

Pros:

This recipe makes a surprisingly large number of cookies. 

The biscuits looked great (if a touch rustic) and I would be very happy to present them to guests.

The pre-measured ingredients and step-by-step instructions made the whole process stress free and fun.

They tasted amazing!

Cons: 

At £8.99 a month Love Food Box is a pretty costly subscription service (although the first month is arguably half price with the right code). I can’t imagine paying this much each month just for the convenience aspect. Having said that, it is pretty good to get a new recipe in the post each month and I understand you can’t always have nice things for free 🙁
