Mississippi Mud Brownies have a sweet brownie base, topped with peanut butter, marshmallows, pecans, and a light chocolate frosting. They are irresistible!

As my most frequent dining buddy, Marc got nominated as my official taste tester. It doesn’t sound like a rough job, but for a guy who thinks food is “good” or “okay,” sometimes it’s hard getting a lot of feedback from him. These Mississippi Mud Brownies, though? I definitely got a response!
When he tried these Mississippi Mud Brownies and said “These are the best brownies I have ever had” I thought he was just being a smart ass. It turns out, he was being serious and they really are the best brownies he’s ever had. After eating twothree way too many of these brownies myself, I’m gonna have to agree with the guy. There are just so many layers of deliciousness going on!
Layers of Mississippi Mud Brownies
The bottom layer is a dense and fudge-like brownie which is super easy to whip up.
The brownie layer is topped with crunchy peanut butter, marshmallows, and pecans. Oh. Em. Gee.
Then to top it all off there is a thin chocolate frosting that seeps into all of the little crevices between the marshmallows and pecans. If that isn’t the best brownie ever, I don’t know what is.
Oh my gosh, this is the kind of bar that one only dreams of but never imagines that such a thing could exist. I love how chock full of goodies it is. I have a huge sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I’d like to invite you to come by and link this up.
These definitely look like big yummy brownie! I love marshmallows mixed in with nuts because of the texture contrast.
Ps. I totally have a friend who can’t use adjectives to describe my food! It annoys me so much too! I want to know details, not just “it’s so yummy!”
These look so fun. They will bring out the kid in anyone. They would be a hit at a kids party or bake sale. If you love these, try my Triple Chocolate Whoppers. Recipe on my blog, http://www.chocolatecentral.com/

Yowza! That looks like something my husband would demolish in minutes – he loves marshmallows! Great job!
