White Chocolate Mississippi Mud



Mississippi Mud is one of my all-time favorite desserts. Never switching up the recipe before, one day I realized I had no walnuts in my pantry half-way through making it. What I did have (no surprise here) is white chocolate chips. Using the chips in place of the nuts, the brownies turned out with a deep richness from the cocoa contrasted with the sweet lightness of white chocolate. The chips do not melt in the brownie either, so there is still a slight crunch that serves well in place of the walnut texture. Combined with the mellow oozy fluffiness of marshmallow creme, and you have a winner of a dessert.
