Everyone loves my cow treats. Our grandson's the one who named them. When I first made a batch, he said, 'Oh, look—black and white brownies. They must be Holsteins!—Jodie Rush, Perkins, Oklahoma

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • GLAZE:
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

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.

"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!!!"

"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,"
