Kristin's Amazing Marshmallow Brownies

These fabulous brownies have been tried and tested around North America. Friends and family in California, Texas, Utah, New York, and Prince Edward Island have all raved over these brownies.
My brother did a brownie taste-test comparing these fabulous Marshmallow brownies with a NY Times recipe titled 'fat dad's closet brownies' and guess which one was preferred - this one!

Kristin's Amazing Marshmallow Brownies (with a gluten-free option)

Preheat oven to 375F. Line 8-inch square pan with parchment paper (I found it still sticks a bit b/c of the marshmallow, but it gives you a better chance at removal).

Melt together in microwave and mix until chocolate is fully melted:
½ cup butter
1/2 cup or 75g/2.5 oz dark chocolate

Add, and mix in the following:
1/3 cup or 30g/1 oz cocoa powder
1/2 cup or 75g/2.5 oz flour (for gluten-free, use equal parts brown rice flour & tapioca starch with a pinch of xantham gum, or your favorite gluten-free flour mix)
1 1/4 cup or 225g/8oz white sugar

Then mix in, one at a time:
2 eggs, 3 eggs if you want a gooier brownie

Finally, fold in:
75g/2.5 oz mini marshmallows, or large marshmallows, chopped (just look at weight on package)

Pour into pan and bake for ~25-35 minutes.These will have a crispy top and gooey inside.  Let cool and enjoy!!!

Really, the picture does not do it justice - not to mention, I will have to step-up my picture-taking to do justice to some of the recipes.  However, these are - hands down - the best brownies I've ever tasted.


  1. are marshmallows gluten free? don't they contain modified food starch?

  2. The ones I have are from Kraft, and they are gluten-free. They contain "modified corn starch", so you're good to go! Rice Krispie treats with gluten-free rice krispies are a favorite treat among many gluten-free eaters. Enjoy!
