Strawberry Marshmallow Brownies

Strawberry Marshmallow Brownies

So remember when I said last week I had a bunch of valentine’s candy left? Well I made this using the rest of that candy. What was even better about making this recipe was that I got to make it with my new Kitchenaid mixer!

20130224-213018.jpgMy husband gave me an early anniversary present. It is absolutely the best gift EVER! I was so excited that within like an hour I was using it making these brownies.

And let me tell, I am glad I did. These brownies are awesome. I mean just super awesome. They are so moist and full of strawberry flavor. Even after a few days they still remained moist.

So the key ingredient to this is yogurt. Yep, I did it. I used yogurt. I am trying to figure out how to get eggs out of my brownies. So I took a recipe that called for 3 eggs and made them with 1 egg and some yogurt. This will be the only way I make brownies from now on. Eventually I hope to get down to no eggs in them but that will have to wait for another day.

***notes***

When brownies were cooled I placed in freezer for about 5 minutes before cutting.

It will be sticky to cut and this help with that. Also even the next day when I cut it was much easier and not as sticky.
