Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
YIELD 8 x8-inch pan (16 squares)


  • 8 oz/230 g (1 and 1/3 cups) chopped bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate
  • ½ cup (1 stick/115 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and ½ cups miniature marshmallows (if you only have large marshmallows, cut them into small pieces)
  • ¾ cup (75 g) hazelnuts (or use your favorite - salted peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans)
  • ¾ cup (75 g) digestive biscuits or cookies (any kind)


  1. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine chocolate and butter. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Heat more, at 20-second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until melted. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold in marshmallows, nuts, and cookies.

  3. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until set. Lift from pan using the foil or parchment paper, and cut into squares. Keep in the fridge. I like to take it out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving.
