How to Make Granny Was On Crack Mud Brownies


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8" square baking pan with parchment or foil. If using foil, spray it with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, 2 Tbls cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Set aside.
  3. In large bowl, beat together 1/2 cup butter, sugar, & 3/4 teaspoons vanilla until creamy. Add eggs one at a time. Stir dry ingredients into batter. Pour batter into prepared pan - spread evenly. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake for 22-25 minutes.
  4. When brownies are done baking; combine peanut butter & oil in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup and microwave on high for 20 seconds to soften. Pour over hot brownies & spread. Now sprinkle this layer with marshmallows. Return to oven to bake for 3 more minutes, or until the marshmallows are puffy. Remove from oven & sprinkle on toasted pecans.
  5. For frosting; combine confectioners sugar & salt in bowl. In small saucepan, melt 4 Tbls butter over medium heat. When butter is melted, add the 2 Tbls of cocoa powder & 1/4 cup of the milk then heat until the mixture begins to boil. Pour this mixture into confectioners sugar/salt mixture & beat on high speed with an electric mixer until smooth and glossy. If frosting is not pourable at this point, add remaining 2 Tbls of milk if needed. Last, beat in 1/4 tsp vanilla, pour evenly over marshmallows & pecans.
  6. Let cool completely in refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Cut into squares and try to share!

    need to additionally add in 1 tsp Guar gum or xanthan gum for every cup of flour used if using gluten free flour or it won't congeal
