Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add water, eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes. Place marshmallow creme in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 15-20 seconds or until warm; spread over warm brownies. Cool completely on a wire rack. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar, cocoa and butter in a small bowl; stir in enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency. With the tip of a spoon, use glaze to form irregular shapes resembling Holstein spots. Cut into bars. Yield: 3 dozen.

MY REVIEW

We have a dairy farm in our family and our children are all involved with showing cows at our local fairs. These brownies are the perfect thing for farm family gatherings and 4-H parties!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2008

WOW, these are unique looking. I'll be making these soon for my husband. We own/operate a Holstein dairy farm in Upstate New York, so the Holstein Brownies title fits us to a tee.

Thank you for sharing!!

Sincerely,
