I had to find an easy dessert that was kid friendly and came across this one. It’s a nice combo of brownie, marshmallow, chocolate and rice crunch. To say the least it was a HUGE hit. It’s rich so a little piece goes a long way which is nice when you are feeding a crowd. They can be served cold or room temp. We preferred them cold as they held together better and where less gooey and messy.

I used a different brand of brownie mix, but I did use the Pillsbury Vanilla Marshmallow Fluffy Frosting. I hadn’t used it before, but I almost liked using this more than the jar of marshmallow fluff.
