- Yields: 9 Big Brownies
2 packets Land O Lakes® Cocoa Classics® Chocolate Supreme Hot Cocoa Mix
4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1Preheat oven to 350°F (If using a dark colored pan, reduce heat to 325 Degrees). In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Remove from microwave, stir in sugar, and melt both for 30 seconds. Stir again and melt for 60 seconds more. You want the sugar and butter to bubble up slightly, but not burn. This amount of time should do the trick.
2Remove mixture from microwave and stir in bittersweet chocolate. This should melt the chocolate completely. If it doesn’t, put it in the microwave for another 15 seconds. Whisk in all other ingredients.
3Pour batter into a parchment lined 8″x8″ pan.
4Bake for 30 minutes (25 minutes if using a dark colored pan), or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
5While the brownies cool, make the frosting. Beat all ingredients in a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment on low speed, gradually increasing to high. Beat for 1 minute or until light and fluffy.
6Frosted the cooled brownies and sprinkle with mini marshmallows. Use a large knife to cut into 9 big brownies! Enjoy!
