W4DW-Jodi's Amazing Brownies

What's for Dinner this Wednesday?  Well, May is Beef Month and now you are looking at the picture below wondering what on earth Chocolate and Marshmallows has to do with Beef Month.  To find the answer read my son's post from last year here.

I have some amazing friends that help me out from time to time on my blog.  They let me know when I have typos, when links don't work and things just don't look correct.  One of most faithful blog assistants is Jodi.  She quickly calls if something isn't right and hasn't even commented on Facebook to fix the needed caption if I am in a meeting.  LOVE her!  Thank you for being there from almost the beginning of this blog journey!!

She shared her family's recipe for Taco Soup this winter and with the cold weather coming in tonight it might be really good tomorrow with these brownies that she shared with me this week.  Love this recipe.  They are delicious and actually pretty easy to make. 

Jodi's Amazing Brownies

1/2 c butter
1/2 c oil
1 c water
2 c sugar
2 c flour
1/4 c cocoa
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c milk

Heat butter, oil and water until the butter melts.  Add sugar, flour, cocoa and eggs and stir well.  Then add baking soda and milk, mix well.   Pour into a greased jelly roll pan (or a cookie sheet with sides).

Bake at 350 for about 18 min. They are done when toothpick comes out clean or they spring back.

Quickly cover with a bag of miniature marshmallows. Put back in oven. Watch them carefully. When marshmallows puff up take them out of oven. Let them cool.
Then frost.


2 tablespoons cocoa
2 c powdered sugar
1/4 c melted butter
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix ingredients together. Spread carefully over marshmallows and brownies.

Thanks so much for sharing Jodi!
