I am totally smitten with these Mississippi Mud Brownies. A moist brownie layered with chocolate chips, topped with melted crunchy peanut butter, marshmallows, sprinkled with toasted pecans and lacquered with a thin layer of frosting. You want them don’t you?
Instantly, when my eyes fell upon TK member Taylor’s (greensnchocolate) recipe forMississippi Mud Brownies, I just knew I had to make them. I desperately felt the need to sink my teeth into these ooey-gooey sinful brownies! And these Mississippi Mud Brownies didn’t disappoint.
In a small pan, melt 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Next add in the cocoa. Stir and gradually pour in the milk. Heat the chocolate mixture until just about boiling, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract. You could also add the vanilla to the frosting once it’s been mixed.
After I poured the icing over top, I realized my frosting must have cooled down too much because the icing didn’t melt into the crevices of the pecans and marshmallow. So I just spread the frosting out evenly. Once cooled enough, I placed the pan into the fridge for an hour or two.
It wasn’t until I removed the Mississippi Mud Brownies and pulled back the parchment paper did I realize what I was in for. These bars contain everything that I love in life. And it was almost too pretty to eat.
This is exactly what one needs to get over the cold weather and post holiday blues. Just be sure to pour yourself a giant glass of milk, because these brownies are rich and will definitely make you thirsty.
These Mississippi Mud Brownies were so much fun to make and definitely the most decadent brownie I have ever had the pleasure to taste!
