Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

I can't decide if Myriam is a genius or pure evil. (meant nicely, of course.) As I love chocolate, and I love brownies, I thought her BrownieBabe concept was fantastic (the genius part). Until the roundups started... and I spent all that time drooling over brownies and blondies... and after I printed more recipes than I could count, and daydreamed about thousands of calories... I realized... maybe this wasn't such a good thing (cue: evil).

Regardless, when I saw Deborah's Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies, I knew I had to make them. I'd only just made my own BrownieBabe entries, so I had to pace myself. As I wanted to make a Father's Day Dinner To Be Proud of (Dad's like meatballs and brownies, right?), I knew these would be perfect. And boy were they!

I tweaked and added some toffee bits along with the chocolate chips and marshmallows, and since I had both the meatballs and the brownies in the oven at the same time, the brownies took a bit longer. Just keep an eye on them and don't do them too long... you want them to be a little squidgy.

Normally, I share and bring in a healthy portion of my baked goods into work. I should note that we kept these all to ourselves. Thanks to Myriam and Deborah!!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup butterscotch chips
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butterscotch chips and butter together in the microwave, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, stir together the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix in the melted butterscotch chips, then the flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth. Stir in the marshmallows and chocolate chips last. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in preheated oven. Cool, and cut into squares.

Ohhh, I'm glad you liked them!! I actually made another batch a week and a half ago with peanut butter chips, but I preferred the butterscotch. I crave these all of the time now.
