Mississippi Mud Brownies

So while on vacation these popped up on one the blogs I follow. The lady at best bites featured these, they are a Southern Living recipe. I thought they looked really good so I decided to make them and seriously wow! They are really really good. At first I thought hmm maybe they would be too chocolaty but nope they were yummy. Also a small tip with these. Try cutting these brownies with a plastic knife because if you don't a regular metal knife will just make these ooey and gooey and a mess to get onto a plate.

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. table salt
1 c. (2 sticks) melted butter (no substitutions)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 c. mini marshmallows

1/2 c. melted butter
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 c. evaporated milk
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease (and flour, if desired) a 9×13″ pan. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer. Add the melted butter, whisked eggs, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally. Add in the chocolate chips and spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes (or a little less if using a metal pan) or until a pick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.

When the brownies are done, remove from the oven and spread the marshmallows on top. Return the pan to the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the marshmallows are puffed and starting to turn golden brown on top. Remove from oven and cool completely.

While the brownies are cooling, beat together the frosting ingredients on high speed until light and fluffy. Spread over the cooled brownies and cut into squares. Makes about 24 brownies.

** Use a plastic knife when cutting into these! Also I only cooked mine for about 35 mins because they were done and I like my brownies soft not crunchy. Just cook them until your liking. Test them with a tooth pick. If it comes out with the mix still runny cook it for a little more. If it comes out with just a few crumbs stuck to it, perfect!**
