Pour half of the brownie mixture into the prepared pan, and then put spoonfuls of Nutella on top of the brownie recipe batter, and spread over top evenly before pouring the rest of the batter into the pan. Bake the brownies for approximately 30 to 35 minutes, or until they start to pull away from the sides of the baking pan.

Did you know that the use of the marshmallow plant to make desserts dates back to ancient Egypt? At that time, a recipe would call for extracting sap from the plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. Other pre-modern recipes used the pith of the marshmallow plant, instead of the sap. The stem would be peeled back to reveal a soft and spongy pith; that was then boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produce a soft, chewy treat. You could also find the gladiators of ancient Rome, using the marshmallow plant's sap. The sap would be rubbed on the body in preparation for fights.
