For my 27th birthday last month, my dad surprised me with a new oven/stove top, and a bunch of new pans.
One of them is a fancy mini fluted tube pan.
I have read a gazillion recipes that requires it, but I haven't tried any yet.
Yesterday I decided to test the pan with a batch of brownies.
One box of generic brand brownie mix + one bag of marshmallows + a cup of butter + my new pan = an easy peasy trip to Heaven on Earth.
You could do this without a mini fluted tube pan, too.
I separated the brownie batch evenly throughout the pan, baked according to the directions on the box, and let them cool for 5 minutes in the pan after baking.
While they cooled, I poured a full bag of marshmallows and one cup of butter into a saucepan and stirred with a wooden spoon until it turned into a rich caramel color and was smooth enough to drizzle onto the brownies.
I generously filled the holes that the pan created in each brownie with the marshmallow drizzle, and served them immediately.
I kid...the kids had some, too.
And The Girl told me, "You should put these on Facebook. They are SO good!" Since she now tells me to post to Facebook when anything is news-worthy, I am taking a little break from my personal Facebook page.
Time to lead by example and show the kids that social networking is fabulous, but not necessary when it comes to dessert.
You should totally make these and mention them on Facebook, though.
Because they are that good!
Happy Friday, friends.
And Happy New Year...be safe celebrating tonight!
