I’ve been craving these brownies for a while.
Growing up my mother made a version of these, but instead of using cocoa as she did, I prefer
to melt chocolate for the brownie batter. It gives it a richness that cocoa powder cannot, in my opinion.
I also like to make them in a 15 x 10 inch pan for thinner brownies.
Even baking them in a larger pan and making them thinner, these brownies are incredibly rich.
Not too rich for me, mind you.
This is the perfect dessert!
It’s easy to make.
It’s easy to bake.
It’s easy to take.
Perfect for persuading your sweetheart you need another diamond family dinners,
cookouts, reunions, church potlucks, or tailgating.
If you like chocolate, this is the brownie for you!
The brownie is dense and gooey, topped with fluffy marshmallows then
creamy, luscious chocolate frosting and crunchy salted pecans.
I added the strawberries, cut to look like a heart, for Valentine’s Day.
You could add fun sprinkles if you are doing them for children.
It’s very simple, put all your ingredients in a mixer then add melted butter and chocolate
*Tip – I like to line the pan with parchment paper or aluminium foil for easier clean up.
You still need to spray the paper with non-stick spray.
I remove the brownies 10 minutes before they’re finished cooking and spread marshmallow over the top
then return to oven and bake another 10 minutes.
This allows the marshmallows to toast, I like them slightly brown.
While the marshmallows are toasting, make the chocolate frosting.
Pour warm frosting over cake as soon as you remove it from the oven.
Can you resist these? What’s your favorite brownie?
