Chocolate Marshmallow Perfection

Mississippi Mud Brownies 
(adapted from allrecipes.com)
  • 1 c. margarine, melted
  • 1/3 c. cocoa
  • 1 2/3 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 T water
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2/3 bag mini-marshmallows

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease 13x9 inch pan.
  3. Add cocoa to melted margarine in a large bowl, mixing well.
  4. Add sugar, eggs, water and vanilla. Mix.
  5. Add flour and salt, stirring. Fold in marshmallows.
  6. Spread in pan.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brownies start to pull away in pan. Warning: middle will be gooey! That's part of the charm.
  8. Let cool, devour.
These are the yummiest! For me, I hate dry brownies. These will never be dry because of the marshmallow goo. Awesome brownies.

**Optional chocolate frosting:  (instead of adding marshmallows while cooking, add them after, then cover with the following:
Combine 1/4 cup butter, 1/3 cup baking cocoa and 2/3 c. milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, and boil one minute. Remove from heat and stir in 16 oz. powdered sugar. Immediately pour chocolate mixture over marshmallows. Let cake cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares. Makes 15 servings.
