Recipe: Spent Grain Mississippi Mud Brownies

We can go on for hours describing how much we love Mississippi Mud brownies: how the oodles of chocolate and marshmallow strands spread gooey-ly as you tear them apart, how chewing on one is like swimming in a bath of rich chocolate and pecans, how...we're guessing you get the picture?

Well, our spent grain Mississippi Mud brownies are like those brownies, but even better. In addition to being soft and indulgent almost to the point of chocoholic excess, adding Spent Grain Flour to the recipe gives them the perfect amount of chewiness as well as a warm nuttiness absolutely perfect complement for the pecan topping. These brownies are so chocolatey, nutty, and delicious that you'll be whipping them up every brew day.
