Loaded Brownies for a Virtual Birthday Party!


My bloggy-friend Meghan from The Tasty Fork is having a virtual birthday party!

Happy Birthday!
(did anyone else read that in the voice of Gus-Gus from Cinderella? no?...)

For this party I am bringing these Loaded Brownies! These babies come complete with salted almonds, shredded coconut, melted marshmallows, and chocolate chips. Holy-Moly, y'all, these are decadent!

I baked these in my Perfect Brownie Baking Pan-- if you don't have one of these things, get one! I love this pan. I am kind of challenged when it comes to evenly slicing things like cake and brownies. My pieces always come out all wonky and different sized, but not with my Perfect Brownie Pan!


For these scrumptious little bites I took a regular old fat-free brownie mix and decided to load it up with my favorite baking ingredients... I mean, would it be a Susan-dessert without coconut!? Uhh, No.
I chose a fat-free brownie mix, by the way, just because I knew I'd be loading up the top of it with plenty of extra calories. I call that using my thinking brain!
Plus, mixes make my life super easy. I mean I just stirred in a bit of hot water, poured the better into the pan, and threw 'em in the oven! After the brownies baked, I removed the little metal divider-thingy and got to the toppings!


this is a funny plate, not a comment on the brownies!

Loaded Brownies
with salted almonds, coconut, marshmallows, and chocolate chips

1- 18oz pkg Krusteaz Fat-Free Brownie Mix
3/4 cup hot water

Toppings:
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup chopped salted almonds


Directions:
Preheat oven to 300*. Spray your brownie pan, set aside.
Stir together brownie mix and hot water, making sure all the mix on the bottom gets incorporated.
Pour into brownie pan- bake as per directions on the box- aprx 30mins

When brownies are done baking, remove from oven and start spreading your toppings! I did the marshmallows first and ended with chocolate chips. Place brownie pan back in the oven for another 5-7 minutes. The coconut will get toasted, the marshmallows with puff and spread, and the chocolate chips will get all melty and gooey.... *drool*

SERVE WARM AND GOOEY! ENJOY!
