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.
