Mom’s Famous Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
We love you!
I know that we have already shared this recipe on our blog, but they are so good, they deserve a second post. Besides, I think that when we first posted them, our blog was just starting out and probably our only reader was our mom. :)
I had to put “Famous” in the title because our mom is seriously famous for these amazing brownies! When we were growing up, our mom would make these brownies all the time, but it was always for someone’s birthday or for a sick neighbor or for a friend . . . never for us! When mom did make a pan just for our family, it was always a special treat. And we could eat the whole pan in a matter of hours.
I now make these brownies quite a bit because they are easy and it makes a TON so they are perfect to share with neighbors or take to a potluck party!
Or, eat the whole pan if you feel like it. I won’t judge you. :)

    These are amazing! Thank you for the recipe. I am making them now for the second time to take to a harvest party at a friend’s house. My house smells wonderful. These have quickly become a family favorite. Anjie

    Just made these on our second crazy snow day, your mother should have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for this recipe! THE Y ARE AMAZING! I didn’t have any mini marshmallows in the pantry so I cut the legones Iin half with kitchen shears that were greased with shortening. Extra work but they were so worth it. Need to take half the pan to my neighbour to remove temptation (under the guise of sharing) lol

    I have made these brownies multiple times for parties and there are never any left. They are amazing. I use the colored mini marshmallows and drizzle the chocolate frosting (made a little thinner) just to give it a more colorful/fun look for the kids. Absolutely the best brownie ever! Thank you!
