Heavenly Hash Brownie

August 6th, 2010 · 32 Comments

Heavenly Hash Brownie

This is a recipe handed down from mother, who would make it for every holiday dinner, and it was always a favorite. Therefore, we asked her for it several years ago, she recited it to the dear wife; and then she detailed it onto a note card, and now makes it often in our home.

What makes this a quick to fix dessert is the use of a typical box of brownie mix, one that will yield a batch in a 9×9 or 8×8 pan. Of course, a from scratch brownie recipe would do just as well, so please feel free to use your own if you so desire.

Elmer’s Heavenly Hash Egg

Please note that this recipe and the name has nothing to do with illicit drugs, or anything with cooking with drugs. The name is derived from the Elmer’s Candy Company famous Easter candy aptly named Heavenly Hash Egg, please refer to this nice review of the famous Easter candy egg. It is one of our favorites, however, typically only sold in the New Orleans area.

1 Box Brownie mix for a 9×9 or 8×8 pan
1 Cup Walnuts, chopped
2 Cups Mini marshmallows
1 Stick Butter, melted
¼ Cup Milk
2 Ounces Baking chocolate
½ Pound Confectioners sugar
Procedure Steps
1. Prepare the brownie mix per the package directions, with the addition of the chopped nuts in an 8×8 or 9×9 pan.
2. When fully baked, remove from oven and top with the marshmallows, allowing them to melt slightly.
3. In the melted butter, add the baking chocolate, and milk, and allow to melt over a very low heat.
4. Transfer the butter chocolate mixture to a large bowl then whisk in the confectioners sugar creating a chocolate icing.
5. Pour the icing over the top of the marshmallows and allow to set up before cutting.

    Messy, gooey and delicious! I must admit though, that the title “Heavenly Hash” made me think of another type of brownie from my past…but I swear, I just tasted it…I didn’t swallow! Theresa

    This looks very googy and yummy. Reminds me a bit of the yummy bars my family made. Maybe one day I’ll share that recipe.

  • 11 Magic of Spice // Aug 6, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    Oh wow…I could just dive directly into the pan.:)

    Love these brownies – heck anything that combines chocolate and marshmallows has to be great – and these sure look awesome!

  • 13 Kristi Rimkus // Aug 6, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    I’m a big fan of marshmallows. This is a dessert worth making. 🙂

  • 21 redkathy // Aug 7, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    Oh my gosh Ryan my son would so love these brownies. He’s gone off to study in London so I guess when I make a pan I’ll be eating them alone!

  • 22 Drick // Aug 7, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    hevenly holy-moly – is this sinful or what …… it will make you swear – can’t wait around for confession, gotta get to making this one …

  • 23 The Mom Chef // Aug 7, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Oh my gosh, that last picture was absolutely the most decadent thing I’ve seen. Wow, I’m glad my family hasn’t seen this (or I’d be out hunting down brownie mix right now).

  • 24 penny aka jeroxie // Aug 8, 2010 at 2:31 am

    Oh MY! I thought Ive fixed my chocolate cravings with chocolate pizza. Seems like I need this as well!

  • 25 Doc // Aug 8, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Me thinks me had that in some bar in Amsterdam. That looks good but are you SURE you didn’t leave something out of the recipe;-)

  • 27 Conor @ HoldtheBeef // Aug 9, 2010 at 6:21 am

    Quite deserving of the “heavenly” title, methinks!

  • 28 Boudreaux Ryan // Aug 9, 2010 at 11:36 am

    Hey Doc, this is a “Drug Free” zone!

    Chef! I can’t believe I missed this post (great minds must think alike), but here I was in my home just yesterday afternoon making what looks a lot like your heavenly hash–only mine is known as: Mississippi Mud! I bet they are related somehow from the “way back when” days! Nevertheless, your version looks waaaay good–piled high with the marshmallow! Yum!

  • 30 Gitte // Aug 10, 2010 at 5:22 am

    As a huge chocolate fan all I can say is wow. I could eat this for breakfast. Love it.

    Hey Kelly, I just did see your Mississippi Mud cake, I would imagine that using a cake recipe in place of the brownie would change this one up to a Heavenly Hash Cake as well.
