Mississippi Mud Cake

If you like chocolaty gooey deliciousness then you will LOVE this recipe. This is a recipe that I stumbled upon a while ago. I cannot make these brownies and keep them in the house because I can't hold myself back from eating them. I'm warning you, this is a dangerously amazing recipe.

In the fall, my husband and I do quite a bit of tailgating.  Go Cards and Rocks! When you tailgate it's important to pack the right kind of snacks. Brownies are always a hit because they are so hassle free.  Just put them in some Tupperware and hit he road. If you are looking to take your brownie recipe to the next level at your next tailgating party, you will need this recipe! My version of brownies are always a crowd pleaser, however, they can be a bit messy.  The mess is totally worth it. I say this as I still have chocolate on my fingers because I can't quit eating them!!! Help!

Happy Baking!!
Mississippi Mud Cake

Mississippi Mud Cake

1 box brownie mix plus whatever ingredients are needed according to box (eggs, oil, water)*
1.5 cup chopped pecans
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 can of chocolate frosting**

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13x9 in. pan with Pam baking spray with flour.
2.  Prepare brownies according to the box.  Pour batter into pan.  Sprinkle the pecans over the top of the brownie batter and bake for however long according to the box. It took my brownies 24 minutes.  
3. Once brownies are done and a toothpick comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs, remove brownies from heat.  Pour the entire bag of marshmallows over the brownies. Place back into oven for 5 minutes or until marshmallows puff up.

4.  While the marshmallows are puffing up in the stove, remove lid from frosting can and microwave icing for 20 seconds.  Stir. Repeat until frosting is thin enough to pour freely.  Once the marshmallows have puffed up, drizzle the entire can of frosting over the marshmallows.  Let brownies cool.  Once cooled cut up in squares to serve.  Enjoy!

*I used Betty Crocker Ultimate Fudge Premium Brownie Mix with Hershey's Fudge
**I used Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Milk Chocolate Frosting with Hershey's Chocolate

Note:  An alternative way to make this recipe would be to sprinkle the pecans over the icing instead of placing them directly on the batter before baking.  I like it as a crunchy surprise in the middle, but it looks great on top too!
