When I was in high school, I remember buying a brownie mix from the store for Mississippi Mud Brownies. They were not much different from normal brownies except there was a packet of marshmallow cream that you swirled into the batter before baking.
I have not been able to find that brownie mix for years, but have tried to replicate it many, many times. The closest I got was using the marshmallow ice cream topping, but it doesn’t seem to be available in Canada. So, it was back to the drawing board.
I’ve searched for a decent recipe online, but was just never able to find one that was close to the original. Then my friend Denise passed on a recipe she had for the brownies. It’s delicious. Without further ado, I give you Mississippi Mud Brownies…
2 C Sugar
1.5 C Flour
1 C Margarine
1/3 C Cocoa
1 t Vanilla
1 C Coconut (optional) -I did not add this, as it was never in the brownies I’m so fond of. I have no idea if the addition of coconut would be good or not.
Grease 9x13 & bake @ 350 for 30-40 minutes. As soon as it is out of the oven, spread a 7 oz jar of Marshmallow Cream/Fluff over the top. Then swirl the frosting.
2 T Cocoa
1/4 C Margarine
3 T Milk
Bring to a boil & add:
2 C Powdered/Icing Sugar
1/2 t Vanilla
Try not to eat the whole pan by yourself!
