Marshmallow Crunch Brownies


I have something for you to do today while you’re quarantining – make Marshmallow Crunch Brownies. 

Make brownies!

These are soooo not regular brownies. They’re absolutely delicious, have layers of flavor, and so easy to make. They’re especially because I used a box mix, and I know y’all like that. And I know, I KNOW I’m late AF to the party for these. But, I’m not the best baker on the block, nor do I aspire to be.

I like to have fun, but I don’t stress over the sweet stuff.

I leave my stressing out for my savory cooking.

I just have an affinity for whipping something sweet together every now and then. Now that my son is back home for a while, and hopefully my daughter will be soon as well, I have kiddos to feed again. Speaking of which, did y’all know that I got divorced? WHATNo? I didn’t tell you? Ok, I gotta fill you in, so I’ll probably set aside some time next post or the next.

Let’s get back to the Marshmallow Crunch Brownies.

Cooking and baking is fun when you’re at home and now that we’re (most of us) required to be by law, hey, it doesn’t bother me at all.

I definitely like being at home.

Working at home doesn’t make me feel like I can’t split the two; I enjoy doing both in the same place. It’s really about time management, having a space that is YOURS, and being able to tune out the nagging from spouses and/or children.

I did work from home before I became a nurse, so I was already disciplined.

So, now’s the time to dig in and find your inner Giada.

Or Bobby Flay. 

Or Snoop Dog. ⬅ He has a cookbook, seriously

You might just discover you actually like to cook.

Marshmallow Crunch Brownies

This past week, I’ve made shrimp scampi, more brownies, Greek meatballs, a roasted chicken, Italian Wedding Soup, and something else.

Oh! I made more pickles.

Today I’m making a special cocktail inspired by this quarantine (not after the asshole virus – it doesn’t deserve a drink) and I’ll probably make more chicken for dinner because I’m craving chicken salad.

I love to make a whole chicken, either in my Le Creuset on the stove or the slow cooker, take all of the meat off and separate dark meat from white. Usually I’ll keep the bones for making broth.


This last time I didn’t because I was so damn tired while I was cleaning up, I ended up throwing it all in the trash.

When I make one whole chicken, it usually yields enough for dinner for one night, a batch of chicken salad and a little more leftover for whatever.

These brownies will last for about 3-4 days wrapped tightly. I kinda doubt they’ll last that long…
