SEC Wild Card 

Stark. Vegas.

 If you’ve ever been to Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi & wondered whether Maroon & White fanatics needed more cowbell, the answer is undoubtedly no. A deep, rhythmic clank-clack, clank-clack, clank-clack rumbles through the stands, burning through the eardrums of rivals so much so it’s been a topic the opposition has wanted to banish for decades but to Hailstate fanatics, it symbolizes the schools’ agriculturally based heritage & it’s just outright Bulldog football. Campus is home to their live mascot Bully, an English Bulldog, that can be found gracing the sidelines during home football games. Once having had free range, Bully now lives in the veterinarian facilities due to several kidnappings in the 1970’s. At times, he can be found sporting a miniature cowbell complete with Mississippi State insignia on his harness. Beyond game day, the iconic piece is also known to be passed from generation to generation & it is displayed proudly in homes & offices. The most classic cowbells are fashioned from thin materials with a bicycle-style grip to the handle as they’re known to ring the loudest. You can make your own Mississippi State Cowbells from maroon & white card stock to add instant charm to tailgating socials. When paired with Classic Mississippi Mud, you’re bound to ring in a bevy compliments.

makes 1 1/2 dozen

Run The Option

Walnuts can be substituted for the pecans, if desired, for an equally delicious result.

1 {4-oz} unsweetened chocolate baking bar, chopped
3/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup ap flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
Classic Chocolate Frosting

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Microwave the chocolate & butter in a large glass bowl on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds until melted & smooth. Whisk in the sugar until combined. Stir in the eggs & the vanilla until smooth. Add the flour & the salt, blending just until combined. Portion the batter between 18 well-greased regular-sized muffin tins filling 3/4 full. Bake 21 to 23 minutes or until just set. Do not over bake. Loosen the edges & cool 20 minutes in the pans. Remove the brownies from the pans & place on a wire rack. Prepare the Classic Chocolate Frosting as directed. Drizzle a little of the frosting over the brownies, top with the marshmallows & sprinkle with the pecans, pressing lightly to adhere. Drizzle with the remaining frosting. If the frosting begins to thicken after drizzling the base of the brownies, beat in an additional teaspoon of milk with the electric hand mixer until smooth before proceeding. Cool completely.  

The Extra Point

Mississippi Mud is appropriate to serve for an array of occasions. Offer the decadent chocolate sweet for upcoming holiday gatherings.

makes about 1 1/3 cups

The Basic Fundamentals

For a thinner blend, add a dribble of additional milk. For a thicker consistency, more powdered sugar will do the trick.

2 Tbsp butter, cut into pieces
3 Tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
3 to 4 Tbsp whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan over Low heat. Whisk in the cocoa powder & the milk. Remove from the heat & whisk until thickened & smooth. Add the vanilla & 1 cup powdered sugar. Beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Beat in the remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Add additional milk, if necessary, to thin the frosting. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

The frosting can be prepared & served over ice cream & pound cake slices for an indulgent sweet ending.
