Marshmallow Brownies

  • Yield: 24 servings

"Ever since a friend gave me this recipe many years ago, my friends and family have enjoyed it. I always fix it for fundraisers, and it sells well.


1cup granulated sugar
1/4cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
2 eggs
2/3cup all-purpose flour
1teaspoon vanilla extract
1cup chopped pecans
20large marshmallows
3tablespoons butter or margarine
5tablespoons evaporated milk
1teaspoon vanilla extract
3cups confectioners' sugar
1/2cup cocoa powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 10 x 8-inch glass baking pan.
  2. To prepare the brownies, combine the granulated sugar, cocoa, butter, eggs, flour, vanilla, and pecans in a medium bowl; stir until just blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 15 to 17 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean. It will not be done in the center at this point.
  3. Arrange the marshmallows on top of the brownies, about 1/2 inch apart, and bake 5 minutes. Remove from the oven. Using the back of a spoon, press marshmallows to spread slightly covering the surface of the brownies. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  4. To prepare the frosting, combine the butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, confectioners’ sugar, and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, until smooth, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and cool. Spread over the cooled brownies and cut into squares.
