Mississippi Mud Brownies

Mississippi Mud Brownies are awesome. Anyone who knows me knows I love rich desserts. I love making them and I love eating them! Too much, perhaps. This is one of the most spectacular brownies you will ever eat. It has a thick, dense brownie layer covered with softened marshmallows and then a fabulous chocolate sauce is drizzled over top. And, if you’re like me, you drizzle a lot more chocolate sauce over the top! When I first saw this post last August I was ready to eat a few right away. Granted, my pictures are not going to be anywhere near as effective as the originals, but hopefully you will get an idea of what this spectacular dessert looks like.

This over-the-top dessert is a wonderful brownie for special occasions, holiday entertaining, office parties — that is, assuming you can get them out of the house safely! You may be tackled at the door! Decadent, luscious, sumptuous are all words I would use to describe Mississippi Mud Brownies.

No, you probably don’t NEED another Mississippi Mud Brownie recipe, but you ought to consider snagging this one all the same. It’s fantastic. You’re family will love these wonderful dessert bars and anyone else who’s lucky enough to get a crumb. In all actuality, these brownies aren’t super expensive like some bars are. Except for the almonds most of the stuff you will probably already have on hand in your pantry if you’re a regular baker.

Ah, go ahead, give ’em a try! You will love the ooey-gooey texture.

When I originally posted this recipe in April 2013, I was not yet taking pictures with my Canon camera. My pictures were okay, but not anything to write home about. I recently remade these delectable Mississippi Mud Brownies (January 2017) for a Bible Study Fellowship I hosted for our small group.

I served these brownies with lots of goodies including Potato Cheese Soup, Cauliflower Cheese Soup, Broccoli, Pear & Pomegranate Salad, Creamy Grape Salad, Spinach Pomegranate Salad, Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread and some of my favorite Be My Valentine M&M Cookies. Everything turned out wonderfully. My guests served these brownies up with a few spoonfuls of chocolate sauce and they were all the rave. Give these brownies a try and you’ll see why.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients.

Soften butter. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt.

Beat with an electric mixer to combine.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add almonds and cocoa.

Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.

Pour mixture into a 9×13″ baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Sprinkle marshmallows over top.

Bake 5 minutes longer. You want the marshmallows to soften not scorch!

I used these ingredients for the chocolate sauce.

Meanwhile make chocolate sauce: soften butter. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, cocoa and heavy whipping cream and whisk to combine.

Drizzle sauce over top of the marshmallows. Sprinkle with almonds. (You will not need all the sauce, but set it aside to drizzle more over top of each individual brownie).

These rich brownies are gooey even without the extra sauce, but a little extra sauce makes Mississippi Mud Brownies spectacular!

Ah, yes, more Mississippi Mud Brownies please! Garnish with additional chopped almonds.

These are great for any kind of party. Everyone loves them.
