Easter is almost here and we all love our chocolate treats, these brownies will be sure to fulfill any mad chocolate cravings you might be having..

  • Using a spatula place your batter into your dish and make sure it spreads out evenly.
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Let cool for at least 1 hour, then using a knife scrape around the edges of dish and carefully remove brownies from dish. If they are still too warm then let cool longer.
  • Place your marshmallow fluff in a small microwave safe dish and heat for approx 35 seconds, it will rise, don't stir it just spread it very quickly on your brownies.. Melt your chocolate in the microwave for 35 second intervals turning each time until melted, then drizzle with a small spoon.

  1. Can you do it without the marshmallow fluff? Will it effect the points at all?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sure, the fluff really only adds a few points to the overall recipe so I doubt it will affect points per brownie

      Hi, I use 3 methods when calculating points, WW recipe builder, My Fitness Pal (to get nutri numbers) and simple math in my head

    What would happen if you use almond flour instead of regular flour… Would that change the points?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sorry I am not familiar with almond flour at all, baking or the points πŸ™

    These came out SO GOOD! Considering they are a lightened up brownie, they taste incredible. They also cooled really well and I was able to cut nice even slices in a considerable amount of time! A lot of the time thick, rich brownies take forever to cool and they always become crumbley so I am glad I found these! I used crushed walnuts instead of the chocolate drizzle, and it came out to 3 pts for me πŸ™‚

      Awesome, so glad you enjoyed them Stephanie, I’ll have to try the nuts one time πŸ™‚

  4. It’s so refreshing to see a recipe that doesn’t call for an alternative sweetener or flour substitute. Thank you!!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Your welcome! I generally do not bake with sweeteners, unless it’s a sponsored post

    • Drizzle Reply

      These brownies don’t rise a ton, but they should rise as you see them in the picture

  5. Could you substitute stevia for the sugar? Would that effect the points? The taste?

    • Drizzle Reply

      you could but I am not too sure on the points I only know as I made it, it would bring the whole recipe down not sure if it would be enough to make each brownie less

  6. I made these 2 weeks ago and froze them! I pull them right out of the freezer and eat them like that! Totally hits the chocolate spot πŸ™‚

    • Drizzle Reply

      So glad you enjoyed them and I like the freezer idea πŸ™‚

  7. My brownies are much lighter than picture and I followed recipe exactly.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Mandi, sorry it is really hard for me to say what happened when I am not there, when you say lighter do you mean not as dense?

      The batter is on the thicker side but not really “dry”

  9. Delicious! I have made them twice now! The first time i found that 20 minutes was too long in my oven so I reduced it to 17 minutes and it was perfect! I also increased the sugar to 4tbs and it was still 2 points. I love the topping of marshmellow fuff and chocolate, so tasty!

      Thanks for sharing Jen πŸ™‚ I am so glad you enjoy the brownies

  10. Hi,I was so happy to find your website. All of your desserts look easy and more appetizing than the WW recipes on their app,their recipes always call for weird ingredients I never have in my kitchen lol. So I made these and really liked them but had a couple questions. The marshmellow fluff wouldn’t spread very good for me even when I added more,any tips? Also the chocolate didn’t drizzle I had to spread it which didn’t work that great. Would sugar free hershey chocolate work in this recipe? I am not very fond on dark chocolate. Thank you!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi April, I hope you enjoy all the recipes πŸ™‚ Marshmallow fluff can be tricky to use, and some brands are better than others, the key to it I find is you need to spread it immediately after it comes out of the microwave (don’t stir it) also any chocolate is fine to use, again it takes some practices melting it depending on strength of your microwave and what chocolate you are using

  11. Okay thank you! Yes I bet I just need to practice with it, this was my first time melting chocolate and also using marshmello fluff 😊
