How to Make Marshmallow Brownies

These brownies may founds fancy, but they’re incredibly easy to put together. The kids can definitely help you with this brownie recipe!

Brownies

  1. Prepare for Baking: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and coat with nonstick spray. You can also bake these without the parchment and coat the pan if need be.
  2. Melt Butter & Chocolate: In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the chopped chocolate and butter. Microwave on high heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until smooth.
  3. Add Dry Ingredients: When the chocolate is melted add in the sugar, eggs and salt and mix until smooth, using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Lastly, stir in the flour, until combined.
  4. Bake: Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until the center is just set and a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  5. Add Marshmallows & Bake Again: Immediately sprinkle the marshmallows on top of the hot brownies and return to the oven for 2 minutes, allowing the marshmallows to puff slightly.
  6. Transfer: Transfer the pan to a wire rack while you prepare the frosting.

Frosting

  • Combine Ingredients: In a large saucepan, melt the butter, cocoa powder and milk together over medium heat until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth and no lumps remain.
  • Pour Over Brownies: Pour the frosting evenly on top of the marshmallows, making sure all are coated.
  • Let Cool: Allow the brownies to cool completely, for 1 to 2 hours, before removing them from the pan and cutting them into bars.

Tips for the Best Marshmallow Brownies

  • Use Parchment Paper: Line your pan with parchment paper so it’s easier to lift the brownies from the pan to cut them.
  • Avoid Over-baking: You want your brownies to be fudgy and moist, right? Make sure you don’t over bake them, especially since you’ll have to put them back in the oven once you add the marshmallows!

Serving Suggestions

Make these brownies your own by adding your favorite mix-ins. Here are some ideas!

  • Top with Graham Cracker Crumbs: To turn your brownies into the ultimate s’mores dessert, top them with crushed graham crackers!
  • Add Chocolate Chips: Add half a cup of chocolate chips to your brownie batter for chocolate overload.
  • Serve with Milk: I love drinking a cold glass of milk while I munch on these brownies!
  • Add Sprinkles: Top your brownies with chocolate sprinkles or sugar pearls to make them even prettier.
  • Serve with Ice Cream: I’m of the opinion that a scoop of vanilla ice cream never needs justification.

How to Store these Brownies

These marshmallow brownies should be stored in an airtight container. Enjoy them within 3 days for optimal freshness!
