Mississippi mud

Thank you all for the sweet compliments and words of encouragement on the redesign! I am thrilled with it and glad you are too.

I am back from a fun trip home to visit my family and have a yummy recipe to share with you - Mississippi Mud Brownies. I brought them to my work picnic today and it was a big hit.

Mississippi Mud Brownies
{From Southern Living}

1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans (used walnuts)
(4-oz.) unsweetened chocolate baking bar, chopped
3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups miniature marshmallows
chocolate frosting (used homemade recipe)

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly toasted. 
  • 2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. Whisk in sugar and eggs until well blended. Stir in flour. Spread batter into a greased 13- x 9-inch pan.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Sprinkle warm brownies with toasted pecans and marshmallows.
  • 4. Prepare chocolate frosting. Pour over pecans and marshmallows; spread to edges. Let cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
