Arkansas Mud

Leah Robertson


I was starving for something chocolate,gooey and rich. I had brownie mixes but that just wasn't enough. I didn't feel like making some extravagant layered cake so I grabbed some stuff from the pantry and this is what I came up with! It is an easy mixed version of Mississippi mud and turtle cake. The sides of the "mud" may be a little bit chewy, but tastes like roasted marshmallows! These brownies will come out very gooey but no liquid. Perfect for ice cream when warm or just a messy snack with milk!
