If you are in the mood for ooey, gooey, chocolate goodness Marshmallow Brownies are the perfect solution. The combination of fudge brownies, melted marshmallows, and chocolate frosting will satisfy any chocolate craving.
I’ve spent some time lately going through my piles and piles of family recipes. As I was going through the recipes, I realized there were some good old family favorites that weren’t here on the blog yet. Recipes like Cowboy Cookies and marshmallow brownies.
Chocolate and marshmallow is pretty much one of the best combos ever. One of my favorite childhood treats was to get a bowl of vanilla ice cream, cover it with chocolate syrup, and then add in a handful of marshmallows. Heaven in a bowl. In fact, I may or may not have enjoyed that ice cream treat just the other night. It’s not just for kids. These brownies remind me of that favorite childhood treat
This dessert consists of a fudge chocolate brownie base that is topped with marshmallow and then covered with a chocolate frosting. Layers of yummy goodness.
Because of the warm marshmallow layer, they can be tricky to cut. They are delicious warm. So if you don’t care what they look like, just grab a knife and cut into them right out of the oven. They will taste like heaven, but you’ll have a nice chocolate marshmallow mess. If you would like a nice clean cut, refrigerated them before cutting. Then let them warm up to room temperature before eating.
No matter how you slice them, they will be delicious. These brownies are proof that the old recipes are some of the best! Get out your old family recipes and see which ones you haven’t made in a while.
