All you need are some marshmallows and chocolate chips to take your regular brownies from good to amazing! I'm impressed by how the marshmallow layer on top of these brownies stays soft even after the brownies are cool. We love adding some extra deliciousness to a simple brownie mix!
Marshmallow Brownie Recipe
Brownie Mix & required ingredients
(our mix calls for vegetable oil, water, and an egg)
Start by following the instructions for your brownie mix. (For ours, we mixed together our egg, water, oil, and dry mix)
This is the perfect time to get your kids helping. They love to stir at any age!
Add some chocolate chips into your mix, if you like a little melted chocolate throughout your brownies. Then put your brownies in the oven and bake according to the directions for your mix.
When your brownies are finished baking, test them with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, they're ready for marshmallows! Sprinkle as many marshmallows on top as you like (we like to do one full layer of marshmallows to cover the surface).
Then sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of the marshmallows & put them back in the oven for around 2 minutes, to allow the topping to melt.
This is a fun part for your kids, too. Let them watch the marshmallows puff up as they're heated in the oven and task them with letting you know when the chocolate chips start to look shiny & melty!
Here's how ours looked when we pulled it out of the oven:
All that's left to do after that is to sample your creation! My kids liked eating them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Do you ever add extra toppings or mix-ins to your basic brownie mixes? I'd love to hear what you've tried in the comments!
