The other problem we ran into was with the chocolate drizzle. The recipe did not state the technique used, and ours ended up messy. It was not pretty and if we had been making these for a special occasion, we would have had to remake them or come up with something else to take. However, the flavor and texture was perfect. If you want to attempt the drizzle, we would suggest using a piping bag (we used a spoon). We will do that next time, or we may try chocolate chips next time instead for a different twist.
And now for the recipe, with our modifications (adapted from the original source, Betty Crocker, which includes a picture if you’d like to see one of the original recipe)…
- 1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) brownie of your choice or your favorite brownie recipe (and whatever ingredients are needed for recipe)
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 2/3 cup pastel-colored miniature Easter egg candies (we used the “Whopper Robin Eggs”)
- 3 tablespoons semisweet or milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 teaspoon shortening
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees or 325 degrees for dark or nonstick pan.
- Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil, allowing it to extend over the sides of the pan. (This will allow for easier removal when it’s time to cut the bars.) Grease bottom only of pan with cooking spray or shortening.
- Bake brownies according to instructions on the box or the brownie recipe you are using. If using a box brownie mix, bake for 5 minutes less than time suggested on the box. (They will get overdone when the marshmallow topping is baked next.)
- Sprinkle with marshmallows and bake for 5 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed and golden.
- Allow marshmallow topping to cool for approximately 20 minutes. Sprinkle half of the egg candies over the topping.
- In small microwavable bowl, heat chips and shortening uncovered on high for 10 to 15 seconds. Stir until smooth.
- Place other half of candies onto topping as desired.
- Using a piping bag, drizzle melted chocolate over bars and cool completely (about 1 1/2 hours).
- Lift foil out of pan and cut bars. (For easier cutting, use plastic knife dipped in hot water.)
