I thought I was done with brownies, but for some reason they keep knocking at my door – literally. The other night we were upstairs reading to the girls, when there was a knock at the door. It was my neighbor and her 2 boys delivering some brownies. I thought it was so sweet of them to do that, but thought, how could these possible be better than these other brownies that I have made recently? I have had quite a good run of brownies.
I had no idea…none. These brownies were fantastic – utterly amazing, and I ate two that night. The bottom was nice and moist, and that layer of marshmallow – oh my goodness – with the chocolate glaze on top – WOW!! I had to have the recipe – and I had to make them myself.
My neighbor was nice enough to send me the recipe – and as the last of her brownies were finished my daughter asked when we were going to make more. I made a batch and brought them to our other neighbors, and they didn’t last long at all – in fact, we each ate a few they were so good. These brownies will definitely go down as some of the best brownies I have ever had…
This recipe comes from her cousin’s cookbook - seems like a great resource, thanks very much!!
