Heidi’s Gluten Free Chocolate Frosted Marshmallow Brownies! November 4, 2014

Everyone within the viewing vicinity of this blog has got to try these incredible brownies!
A couple months ago, our neighbor Heidi and her adorable girls brought me these brownies. Heidi and her family eat gluten free, so Heidi is aware of the challenges that come with this dietary restriction. Heidi said she makes these brownies all the time for special occasions because they are a hit with gluten free eaters and everyone else.
These brownies are incredible! My parents and I, along with Aunt Janet and Grandma Muse (who have recipes in previous posts) had the brownies and were in chocolate paradise.
My mom and I made these brownies for my niece’s blessing last month. The brownies were a hit! The next weekend, I made an 8-8 pan because I like chocolate way too much. 🙂
These brownies are really simple: make the brownies according to the instructions on the box. (Even though they are gluten free they use butter, but a little butter never hurt anyone right?) Be careful they do not overbake.
When the brownies are done baking, place mini marshmallows all over the top and place the pan back in the oven.
Let the marshmallows cook, for just a couple minutes (be sure to watch them because they brown quickly).
When the marshmallows are done take the brownies out of the oven and let them completely cool. (Putting them in the fridge will help)
Frost the entire marshmallow layer and place the pan in the fridge so the frosting can set.
There is only one problem; we have found it is difficult to cut the brownies out of the pan. We recommend using a sharp knife to cut the brownies after they sit on the counter to warm up.
When the brownies are cut, give some away, or keep them for yourself and enjoy a simply fantastic gluten free treat!
Thanks for the recipe Heidi, the brownies are wonderful!


Heidi’s instructions:
I just use the Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie mix in a yellow box. I usually do two boxes and cook them in a 9” x 13” pan. It makes them a little thicker so I have to adjust the cooking time and watch them a little more closely while I’m cooking them. I just follow the mixing instructions on the box and after the brownies are done cooking I take the pan out and sprinkle mini marshmallows over the whole pan to cover the brownies. Then I stick the brownies back in the oven and turn it to Broil for about two minutes until the marshmallows are puffy and barely start to brown – watch them closely because they burn quickly. The brownies need to cool really well and then I frost them with Pillsbury milk chocolate frosting (which is gluten free). I think they’re easier to cut when they’ve been refrigerated for a while so they’re not just a gooey mess. I usually serve them cold, too.
