Delicious Marshmallow Brownies

Last weekend, when our friends M&E were coming over for dinner, I wanted to make a dessert (because in my world, no meal is complete without something sweet at the end). I had a brownie mix that needed to be used up, but I didn't want to make plain brownies, so I perused my pantry for something to make them "special" and spotted some marshmallows. Have you ever had brownies with marshmallows? Their a great pair. Want to know what makes them even better? A rich, chocolate frosting. HEAVENLY!


* 1 box of your favorite brownie mix
* 1/2 bag mini marshmallows
* 1/2 stick butter
* 1.5 Tbsp. cocoa powder
* 3 Tbsp. milk
* 2 cups powdered sugar
* splash of vanilla extract


1. Prepare brownies according to directions on package.

2. Top with mini marshmallows...

And put back in the oven for 5 minutes until marshmallows are melted & puffy. Remove & let cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

3. To make icing, combine butter, cocoa powder & milk in a sauce pan over low heat.

4. Bring the mixture to a boil & then remove from heat.

5. Slowly stir in powdered sugar until mixture is smooth.

6. Stir in a splash of vanilla.

7. Drizzle icing over the marshmallows. Let sit for 30 minutes to allow icing to set.

8. Enjoy!

My Tid-Bits:

* A lot of people call these Mississippi Mud brownies. I call them TASTY GOODNESS!

* Always use a plastic knife to cut brownies. I don't know why, but a plastic knife makes a cleaner cut.

* I made these on Sunday thinking we'd have them for dessert that evening & then have plenty of leftovers for when our nephews arrived on Tuesday. By the time they arrived, the pan looked like this:
I don't know what it is about brownies, but I can't pass by the pan without cutting off a small piece. I guess those small pieces add up. Oops!!
