There are some recipes that take you to a certain place and call back specific memories, you know what I mean? This brownie recipe is one of those for me. It makes me think of all seven of my husband's siblings home for Christmas with kids running around, playing board games, sledding on the back hill, someone sitting on top of the old wooden stove and all the women chatting and cooking in the kitchen trying to feed that big old crowd.
This brownie recipe is definitely one that feeds a crowd! Plus it is simple to make and is so stinkin' delicious that everyone sneaks into the kitchen to try and nab the last piece. The brownie layer is moist and chocolatey with gooey marshmallows and buttery chocolate frosting to top it all off. Mmm! So good! It's one of our family's favorites and I know your family will love it too!
