Chocolaty and Gooey Brownies

"These brownies are chocolaty and gooey and not low in anything! When we made them I wanted to use up the rest of the miniature marshmallows that I had which wasn't close to 1 pound - but in reality closer to 1/2 cup - however using the full amount would make them even more scrumptious and gooey I imagine. Recipe source: Reader's Digest Edited: the frosting part of this recipe was corrected after one reviewer mentioned that the directions weren't clear."

Ready In:
1 pan brownies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl combine the 1 cup softened butter, 2 cups sugar, 1/3 cup cocoa and the 4 eggs.
  • Stir in the flour, vanilla, salt and nuts (if using).
  • Pour into greased 1-inch deep baking sheet (or a large baking pan; we used a 9 x 13 pan but had to cook the brownies longer).
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Cover with marshmallows. (I used quite a bit less but with great results).
  • Bake 3 to 5 minutes so marshmallows can melt.
  • To make frosting: mix together remaining ingredients (1 1/3 cups powdered sugar,butter, cocoa, and evaporated milk) using an electric mixer.
  • Frost brownies when brownies are cool.

  1. I made these brownies as listed except for omitting the nuts. After adding some (not full quantity) of the marshmallows I found that it got quite messy. I ended up scraping the marchmallows off and just leaving a thin glazy layer. I then added the frosting. I found the frosting to be the best part of the recipe. The brownies themselves were to us more chocolate cakey than like a brownie. The brownies would have been too sweet if I had not removed the marshmallows. But we did like the hint of them, though.
  2. My family LOVED these brownies! They were easy to make the only thing hard about them was to stop eating them :)
  3. These were a real hit. Chocolaty and gooey pretty much sums it up. Made these for my DD, SIL and their friends. They were a big success. These will be a repeat.
  4. YUMMY! This is chocolatey and gooey but I think a better name would be something like Rocky Road Delight. If you like Rocky Road you'll love this! It was pretty easy to make but hard to cut through the marshmallows. I made it in a 13x9 and baked it for 30 minutes. I used coarsely chopped pecans. I used the full amount of marshmallows and had no trouble with the frosting. Because of the frosting I assumed it needed to be refrigerated but then you need to let it sit out before cutting it or it's too hard. Anyhow all of the adults at my work LOVED this and I can see it would be a real WINNER with kids too!
  5. very nice brownie, went down very well with the ladies at work. however, only gave 4 stars because i could not understand the instructions for the frosting so had to looked up another recipe for it on zaar will make again


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
