Mississippi Mud or Marshmallow Brownie

Saw Paula Deen making these one day last week and realized it had been literally years since I have made them.  After making a batch, I  know WHY I hadn't made them for so long.  They are very rich, chocolately and sinful!  Along with gooey marshmallow and a nice chewey brownie these have the potential of being very dangerous.  I've already given more than half the pan away to the gal I work with and another friend.


Since I was in a hurry, I took some shortcuts!  Paula's recipe takes you through making the "cake" from scratch.  I used a packaged brownie mix, layered the marshmallows and topped it off with her icing.   Either way you won't be disappointed, just depends how much time you have!

Also, want to take a moment to wish a  Happy Birthday to a very dear S&S friend today...Susan from Savoring Time in the Kitchen is celebrating her 39th !! 



Thanks for stopping by, hope your teeth aren't hurting too much......

I know what you mean about some recipes making your teeth hurt. Some of Paula's can do that. I have a weakness for the chocolate, marshmallow, frosting combo so I know I couldn't leave this alone.

Totally fattening but hey who is counting:) I made the cooking light version of the mississippi mud cake and it tastes good and a whole less calories. It is much lighter but if I was a skinny girl I would prefer Paula's recipe:) Now I am going to be thinking of these all day long!

Barb ... My mom used to make these. One of her favorties, but not something that she made frequently. And yes, it's been years.

Yours look amazing ... a mouth-watering picture for sure.

Wish I had one for breakfast they look so good! Great idea taking a shortcut on the base because it is the topping that really MAKES this dessert a winner.
