These brownies are flaming good. Literally. The last part of the recipe requires you to broil the brownies to get the marshmallows nice and toasty looking. They only need 1 minute to broil and they are ready. But I got distracted and left them in the oven for 3-5 minutes. When I went to get them, surprise! They were on fire. My first thought was to grab some water, but I put so much time and effort into these brownies, I wasn’t about to demolish them because of a semi-raging fire. Luckily the flames went out quickly and I was greeted by the shrill tones of the smoke detector, which I promptly ripped off the wall. When all was said and done, my poor brownies were covered in a layer of ashy marshmallow. On the plus side, after I scraped it off, the brownies looked and tasted great. Lesson of this story? Just because your recipe doesn’t go quite as planned don’t freak out. Sometimes it will turn out even better!
Here are some more surprises from my Vegan S’mores Fudge Brownies: they are gluten-free, they contain roasted beets, and the base of the batter is black beans! However, these brownies taste just as good as any brownie made with wheat flour and dairy products. No one would ever suspect they have veggies and legumes in them!
