I don’t use the term “amazing” lightly, but these really fit the bill.

The handful of marshmallows make them unique, and along with the white chocolate chips, and chocolate chips, make for a wonderfully, gooey brownie.

In the picture above, I turned them into mint brownies, by adding a layer of mint buttercream frosting, and another of chocolate ganache. Usually though, I frost them with a traditional chocolate buttercream frosting.


3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. + 2 T. flour
1/3 c. cocoa
2/3 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. white sugar
1/2 c. chocolate chips
handful mini marshmallows
3 eggs
2/3 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugars and butter. Add eggs and vanilla, then cocoa. Mix in flour and salt. Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows. The batter will the thick. Pour into a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-32 minutes, or until the middle is set. They will be gooey–and a toothpick may not necessarily come out clean due to the melted chocolate chips. Do not overbake. Let cool to room temperature, then frost. Chill for 30 minutes, then cut into squares.

Chocolate Buttercream:

4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa
1 stick butter
4-6 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
dash salt

Whisk together the powdered sugar and cocoa in a large bowl. (Add more or less cocoa, depending on chocolate preference.) Add the butter and 1-2 T. of milk, and start beating. Gradually add more milk while beating well, until it reaches the desired consistency. Add vanilla and salt, then beat until light and creamy.

If you like mint…

Mint Buttercream:

4 c. powdered sugar
1 stick butter, softened
4-6 T. milk
dash salt
2-3 drops green food coloring
1 tsp. peppermint flavoring

Place powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add softened butter, and 1-2 T. of milk. Start beating with electric mixer, and gradually add milk until it reaches desired consistency. Add extract, salt, and food coloring, then beat until light and creamy.

Chocolate Ganache:

2 c. chocolate chips, or finely chopped chocolate squares (I prefer milk chocolate, but semi-sweet is generally used.)
8-10 T. whipping cream

Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Add 8 T. of the cream, then a little more if necessary, stirring until glossy.

-Once brownies have cooled to room temperature, add the mint frosting. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then add the ganache layer. Refrigerate until firm, then cut into squares.

ENJOY! You will LOVE these!
