5. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees.

6. In a large saucepan, melt together butter and chocolate. Remove from heat and allow to cool for five minutes.

7. Whisk in sugars until smooth. Add in eggs, vanilla and espresso powder; whisk until smooth.

8. Add in flour and cocoa powder, whisk until smooth. Fold in milk chocolate to incorporate throughout the batter.

9. Pour batter into the pan over the graham cracker crust. Bake for 28-32 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

10. Slice brownies into 16 equal squares, and top each with a marshmallow. Use a blow torch to toast the tops of the marshmallows.

11. Alternatively, if you do not have a blow torch; you could return the brownies to the pan or place on a baking sheet and set your oven to broil. Allow the tops of the marshmallows to toast this way, but keep a close eye on them as they will brown fast.
