I was in the mood to change-up the usual brownies the other day, and since I had marshmallows and pretzels on hand I figured I would try to make a fun topping for the brownies.
The results turned out pretty, and my kids really liked them a lot, so I figured I would share what I did here.
To recreate this recipe you will need:
In advance I made the brownies, I just used a box mix. Next, I ground the pretzels in a nut grinder until I had 1 cup of pretzels.
I spread this on top of the brownie.
Then, I heated 2 cups of small marshmallows and 2 tbsp of margarine together in the microwave for 30 seconds.
I stirred this until it was completely smooth.
I poured this over the top of the pretzels on the brownies and then let it cool.
Once the marshmallow cooled and set, I carefully cut through the brownie concoction with a pie server and served them immediately.
I say carefully as to not separate the topping from the brownie.
I suggest storing these in an air tight container once cooled, and put any left overs into the fridge. I am not sure how well they would do being left out for long periods. In addition, they are better if you eat them within a day, since by the second day the pretzels started to soften up.
Do you make a similar dessert? What ingredients do you use?
They must have been good since the kids wanted seconds, and they even asked me to send some to their teachers at school.
