Marshmallow Swirl Brownies:
Easy Brownie Recipe

Marshmallow Swirl Brownies: you would be hard-pressed to find an easier recipe that has this kind of “wow” factor – and tastes homemade. This luscious brownie variation is both fudgy and gooey, making it a favorite for sweet tooths.

One of the beauties of making cookies with a mix as an ingredient is that you eliminate measuring and mess. Additional ingredients – and using your own oven – make the recipe “homemade.”

If you’re a purist, by all means use your own brownie recipe from scratch and chocolate frosting from scratch. (But for the record, The Elf is known to use mixes and prepared frosting from time to time.)

Marshmallow Swirl Brownies: ingredients, directions, and a special baking tip from The Elf to make this super easy brownie variation.


Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 26-30 minutes

Makes 24-36 bars

Ingredients

1 18-ounce brownie mix (or your favorite brownie recipe)

2/3 cup vegetable oil

¼ cup water

2 eggs

1 7-ounce tub of marshmallow crème

1/3 cup prepared chocolate frosting (or same amount of your own homemade chocolate frosting)

Directions

Swirling the surface of Marshmallow Swirl Brownies
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F (325º F for a glass dish). Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking pan. Pay special attention to the corners and sides of the pan, making sure they are well-greased.

  2. Pour brownie mix, vegetable oil, water, and eggs into a medium bowl. Stir ingredients together with a large spoon until blended, about 50-60 strokes, until dry mix particles are absorbed.

  3. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan. Spread evenly. Bake 26-30 minutes until set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Allow brownies to cool completely.

  4. Spread marshmallow crème over brownie surface.

  5. Set 1/3 cup chocolate frosting in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 10-20 seconds. Stir frosting until it is smooth and pourable. Drizzle frosting over marshmallow crème in a thin, striped pattern.

  6. Use a knife to swirl the marshmallow crème and frosting and create a marbled effect, inserting the knife in one corner of the pan and moving it back and forth in the surface, perpendicular to the chocolate frosting stripes.

  7. Refrigerate the brownies for 15-30 minutes.

  8. Coat a kitchen knife with vegetable spray. Run knife around the inside edge of the pan to release brownies. Re-coat the knife. Cut brownies carefully and cleanly.

  9. Store brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

A Special Baking Tip from The Elf

Marshmallow Swirl Brownies are easier to cut cleanly with a cold, greased knife. Place the greased knife in the refrigerator before you begin mixing the batter together. By the time the brownies are baked, cooled, and frosted, the knife will be cold.
