  • 1 box Simple Mills Chocolate Cake mix
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (coconut oil will also work)
  • 72 mini marshmallows
  • Optional: 1/2 cup Simple Mills Chocolate Frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a mini muffin pan with muffin liners and spray the inside of them with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. 
  3. Stir in cake mix and coconut sugar and mix 30 times or until smooth. Fill each muffin tin 2/3 of the way full and bake for 9 minutes. 
  4. Remove from oven and press 3 mini marshmallows in the middle of each brownie bite. Place back in oven and broil for 1-3 minutes, watching very carefully, until marshmallows begin to toast and turn golden brown. 
  5. Once golden brown and toasted, remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes in pan before transferring brownie bites to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Best if enjoyed slightly warm, but bites will stay good for a few days at room temperature.
  7. If you'd like you can drizzle a little frosting on each brownie bite. To do this, simply add 1/2 cup of Simple Mills Chocolate frosting to a microwave safe dish and microwave for 20-30 second until melted. Drizzle a little on each brownie bite. Enjoy!
