Mississippi Mud Brownies


  • 2 packages brownie mix – and the things to make them with (eggs, oil & water usually)
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans , toasted (optional – I usually skip these)
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
  • Chocolate Frosting – I use about 3/4 of a container of store-bought frosting cause that’s how I roll


  • Make the 2 packages of brownie mix according to directions.
  • Stir in chopped pecans.
  • Pour batter into a greased and floured 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes until mostly done.
  • Remove from oven; top with marshmallows while still warm.
  • Return to oven, and bake another 5 minutes – just long enough to start “browning” the marshmallows. Remove from oven.
  • Microwave frosting for 45 seconds or so until pretty melted. Drizzle chocolate frosting over warm cake. Cool completely.
