So this is like the easiest recipe in the world. Like so easy, who could mess it up? Any yet somehow I managed to mess it up and my first batch went in the trash. I mean, really?! So note to self, don’t use stale marshmallows or you’ll end up with a hard marshmallow mess. So, it really wasn’t my fault, right?! It was the marshmallows I used! So I ran to the store and got more marshmallows. I wasn’t going to let a krispie treat conquer me! It turned out perfectly the second time using fresh marshmallows. I love the slightly chocolatey flavor, and I would even add a bit more brownie mix next time. I didn’t have the brownie pieces to put in this but I bet they would be even better with those.
