A video from ‘Instagram famous’ baker Eloise Head showing viewers how to make brownies stuffed with Nutella and marshmallow has gone viral on social media.
The 26-year-old founder of FitWaffle Kitchen, an Instagram page dedicated to decadent desserts that take just minutes to prepare, shared the clip on January 10.
The video shows the self-taught London chef making the fudge-like brownies stuffed with a thick layer of hazelnut spread and ready-made marshmallow fluff.
Ms Head, who shot to online stardom when a baking craze swept the globe during the first Covid lockdown in March, uses butter, sugar, plain flour, cocoa powder, milk chocolate to make the base of treats.

London baker Eloise Head’s drool-inducing Nutella and marshmallow stuffed brownies
‘These kinda have a s’mores vibe to them, and they’re so gooey and indulgent,’ she says in the clip.
To make the brownies, Ms Head melts 170 grams of unsalted butter, then mixes it with 250 grams of caster sugar, whisking the two together using a handheld mixer.
She cracks two eggs into the mixture and beats again until all ingredients have combined to form a fluffy texture.
Next, she pours in 125 grams of melted milk chocolate before sieving in 30 grams of cocoa powder, 100 grams of flour and a pinch of salt, folding gently.
Once mixed, Ms Head spoons half the batter into a lined cake tin – eight centimetres in diameter – then dollops 300 grams of Nutella on top, spreading it out evenly.
She adds 125 grams of marshmallow fluff and gently covers it with the remaining half of the brownie batter.
The brownies should be baked in the oven at 170 degrees Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes.
Ms Head said it’s best to let them cool in the tin and refrigerate them overnight to achieve the firmest texture.
