Marshmallow Brownies

   Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend! 🙂 We did even though poor Avery got Pink Eye Thursday, so she missed school Friday. She says, “Mommy, I like pink.  But I DO NOT like Pink Eyes….”  We played some cards and hung out on the couch together.  {I will teach you this fun new game in a post coming up in May….}

Cards

  Saturday we played outside in the beautiful weather, FINALLY warm and sunshine!   I painted some doors Dale hinged together for me to use for a very heavy, non moving photo prop.  We also painted a rusty old cake stand with silver sparkles for Cake Smash Photo shoots.

So excited to have this new color option for photo shoots! 🙂  I had really great helpers to get the job done in no time….Destiny helped too, but for some reason I didn’t snap her photo! 😦

We also grew our family by 10 chickens and 2 ducks over the weekend.  That brings us to a grand total of 40 hens, 2 roosters and 4 ducks!  Welcome to the Funny Farm! 🙂 I will be glad when these girls start laying, because right now, we can hardly keep enough eggs on hand for the people that want to buy them!!!!!

  So on to the food, Marshmallow Brownies. MMMM!  Now, it needs to be said, that I am not much of a Chocolate fan…. 

WAIT! Before you leave this site forever, let me explain!  

I don’t like Hershey’s Bars, plain brownies, plain chocolate anything, actually.  Cover Caramel in Chocolate, make Chocolate gooey, creamy or Toffee filled, and I AM IN!

  These chewy, soft, AMAZING Brownies made me go weak in the knees!  Homemade Brownie bottom, chewy marshmallow middle and a melt in your mouth Cocoa Buttercream Frosting.

  This recipe comes from Six Sisters Stuff, and its called Mom’s FAMOUS Brownies.  I think there is a reason these Brownies made their Mom famous. HOLY COW!
