Sweet and Salty Brownies Ingredients Needed:

Mini Marshmallows


These brownies come together really quickly! These are perfect to take to a gathering and look really pretty on a nice plate. They are pretty gooey so you wouldn’t be able to stack them on top of each other. I love the look of the pretzels on top. You could easily just crush up pretzels to spread on the top too.

If you love brownies you should definitely try these! They have a little bit of everything in them and are always a hit. Looking for a super easy brownie recipe, these Cake Mix Brownies are really good!
