I love a lot of things my Grandmother makes but one of my most favorite things is her cottontail brownies! What’s a cottontail brownie, you ask? Only the best brownie in the WHOLE entire world. I always remember her making Cason and I a batch of these when she came to visit and I thought they were a little piece of heaven. Impress your next party guests with a plate of these and you’re bound to become the hostess with the mostess!
Cottontail Brownie Recipe
:: 4 eggs, beaten
:: 1 cup butter
:: 4 squares unsweetened chocolate
:: 1 teaspoon baking powder
:: 2 cups sugar
:: 2 teaspoons vanilla
:: 1 cup flour
:: dash of salt
:: 1 bag of mini marshmallows
:: 1/4 cup butter
:: 1 square unsweetened chocolate
:: 1/2 box of confectioners sugar (If the icing is too thin just add a little more confectioners sugar)
:: 2-3 tablespoons milk
Step 1 | Melt 4 squares unsweetened chocolate and 1 cup butter in sauce pan. Remove from heat. Add the rest of the brownie ingredients (eggs, baking powder, sugar, vanilla, flour, salt) and stir until well blended. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. OR just be like Sandra Lee and buy a box of brownie mix. There is nothing wrong with semi-homemade!
Step 2 | While the brownies are cooking melt 1/4 cup of butter and 1 square unsweetened chocolate. Add 1/2 box of confectioners sugar and a little milk. Don’t add all tablespoons at once. Only add as many as you need- if the icing seems too thick add another tablespoon. Mix ingredients to the consistency of a chocolate icing. Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Step 3 | After the brownies are done, turn off the oven. Pour a small bag of mini marshmallows over brownies. Place the brownies in the oven until marshmallows have melted. Pour the chocolate icing over marshmallows and spread. Make sure to let your finished product sit and cool for a while so that it will cut nicely.
You won’t regret making…I promise!
