Mom’s Famous Marshmallow Brownies

Print Friendly

These are my favorite brownies of all time!  I remember Mom making them so much growing up, but they were always to give to people in the ward or neighborhood so we would hardly get to eat them! I make them quite a bit because they are easy and it makes a TON so they are share with neighbors or take to a potluck party!

Mom’s Famous Marshmallow Brownies

1 c. margarine
2 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla

Soften margarine and blend in 2 cups sugar and cocoa.  Beat together and add 4 eggs, one at a time.  Add flour, salt and vanilla.

Spread on large (10x15x1 inch) greased cookie sheet.  Bake 25 minutes at 350.  Remove from oven and cover entire top with 1 package of miniature marshmallows.  Return to oven for 3 minutes, until soft and puffy.  Cool and frost with chocolate frosting.Chocolate Frosting:

1 stick margarine (1/2 c.), softened

    Hey Cami!

    I added the recipe my mom always uses for her chocolate frosting to the bottom of the post. She has never written down the recipe so after a little trial and error, we came up with that! I hope it works!

    these are just like I make only with my family they have to have chopped pecans in them, and lots of them. This is one of the best Blogs I have visited, so much great information.

    ok, I just made these and they over flowed all over the bottom of my oven and that part burned and caused a huge mess – did this happen to anyone else??? The whole house was filled with smoke!

      Run your knife through hot water before slicing and that should help you get through the yummy marshmallow layer for a cleaner cut.
