To start things off, I’m sharing my tutorial on how to make super Gooey Patriotic Marshmallow Brownies for the Fourth of July!
These are even great for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Flag Day!
Gooey Patriotic Marshmallow Brownies Recipe
What you will need:
- Favorite Boxed Brownie Mix (and required ingredients) – My favorite is the Betty Crocker Family Size Fudge Brownie Mix which requires 1/4 cup water, 2 eggs and 2/3 cups oil.
- 3 cups Marshmallows
- 2 tbs butter
- Candy Stars
- Cooking Spray
- Cookie Cutters in shapes of your choice. I used two different stars for my brownies.
- Parchment Paper
- Wax Paper
- Cookie Sheet
- Large Sauce Pan
First prepare the brownies per the box instructions. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper, pour batter on the paper and bake per the box instructions. Once done, let cool.
Next, in a large sauce pan, melt the butter and add marshmallows. Stir until melted. Then pour the marshmallows over brownies, covering them completely. Generously sprinkle the candy stars and sprinkles over the marshmallow layer. Loosely cover with wax paper and let set over night.
To cut the brownies in fun shapes, spray the cookie cutters with cooking spray and press firmly and twist slightly to cut through the gooey marshmallow layer.
Carefully push out the brownie from the cookie cutter. If your brownie loses shape, don’t worry. The marshmallow is forgiving and is easy to mold back into shape.
WARNING: These are super gooey and addictive!
Tip: Add a few more sprinkles on your plate for decoration.
These make great party favors too! Just add a tag for your guests!
