Mississippi Mud Brownies

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100

Mississippi Mud Brownies

I took this to our church's celebration of Brother Mickey, our Minister of Music, having served the Lord at our church for 20 years!!
He has been faithful to point us to Jesus through songs of worship!!

This is only a portion of the brownies. Because they are so gooey, you can't stack them. You'll need a very large platter, or multiple platters, to hold them all.
I thought this was a cute and happy little plate. It was $1.25 at Dollar General - one of those that wouldn't have to be returned.
It's large enough to hold a cake, too!

I have made these several times over the years. This is my adaption of a recipe I originally found in a 2004 issue of Southern Living magazine. They make a huge jelly roll-sized pan full. Great for a crowd!! They are very rich and gooey!! My family makes audible moans when they eat theses! They are great warm, but are also very moist the next day, too!

2 (19.5-ounce) packages commercial brownie mix
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
1 (10.5-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows

Pour both packages of brownie mix into a large bowl. Double the oil, eggs and water called for in preparing one box. Pour brownie batter into a 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.
Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle the bag of marshmallows over top of brownies. Sprinkle chopped pecans over marshmallows. Return to oven, and bake 5 minutes. Drizzle Chocolate Frosting over warm cake. Cool completely.

Chocolate Frosting:

1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup milk, more or less - want it to be of a drizzling consistency
Combine first three ingredients using electric mixer. Gradually add milk until desired consistency is reached.
