There is just something about sharing sweets that makes me very happy. You can't go wrong with a tasty treat! Today I am sharing my all-time favorite brownies recipe. We have been making these marshmallow brownies in our family for years. The original recipe came from a friend of ours growing up in St. Louis, Anita B. They're not your average brownie... Yummy marshmallows sandwiched between a layer of brownie and scrumptious frosting!
For a fun Valentine's Day twist, I used pink strawberry marshmallows and cut them into heart shapes! It's a sweet treat to share with someone you love!
My mouth is watering all ready...
Here is how you can make your own! (Don't forget that you can print your own recipe at the end of the post.)
First the brownie layer!
2 sticks margarine
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg. miniature marshmallows (I used 1 pkg. of large strawberry marshmallows)
Take out of oven for 3 minutes. Cool for 1 hour. I found that I had to break apart the big marshmallows just a bit in order to spread them across the entire pan. But aren't they so pretty and pink?
Frosting (my favorite part!)
1/2 c. margarine
1 2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
1/2 c. canned milk
Mix and spread on top of marshmallows.
I left them in the refrigerator overnight to be sure everything set up and they would be completely firm before cutting them into heart shapes. I used the cookie cutter as a guide, and carefully went around the shape with a knife.
Simple and sweet with just a hint of pink!
