There can only be one recipe to kick off my blog and that’s BROWNIES! Everyone loves brownies, and they are among the easiest desserts to make. While there are a gazillion recipes out there, the one that I love incorporates marshmallows (they become gooey and melty) and pecans, and are fudge-y and completely addictive!
There are only a few steps involved in these decadent goodies. So not only are they crazy good, they are simple and quick to make. I love them with ice cream, a glass of milk, fresh out of the oven, or for breakfast the next morning. I can eat them frozen (just cut them into little chunks to nibble on) or can dunk them into my coffee. Did I say how much I love these??!!
Makes 24 squares
1 cup unsalted butter
4 ounces (squares) unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, gently blended in a small bowl
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups mini-marshmallows
1 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips, divided
Heat oven to 350°F, and grease a 9”x13” baking pan.
Melt butter, chocolate, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Let cool slightly.
Transfer chocolate mixture to a large bowl. Add eggs and mix until incorporated. Add flour and vanilla and mix. Fold in mini-marshmallow, pecans and 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven when a tester (toothpick or skewer) comes out clean.
Let cool completely. Cut into 24 pieces.
Serve and enjoy the heck out of them! They won’t last long!
