Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Are you a Saturday baker?  My mother always
filled Saturdays with baking.  Here's a simple and
easy recipe for Saturday baking and you probably
have the ingredients in your pantry.

Who even needs to bake when the batter is 
this good. Yes, I am a confessed batter eater 
and this recipe is great as a batter or as brownies.

 Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies
because as it bakes the marshmallows 
as they melt into the brownie.

This brownie is filled with all sorts of delicious
goodies - butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, marshmallows -
My friend Colleen made these for a Lake Powell
trip years ago and they were an instant hit.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

1 C. butterscotch chips
1/2 C. butter
2 eggs
3/4 C. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C. plus 1 T. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 C. mini-marshmallows

Melt the butterscotch chips and butter together
in a microwave safe bowl.  Stir after 30 seconds
and then microwave again for 30 seconds and stir.
Repeat again if necessary.  Stir to blend.
Cool to lukewarm (this really is necessary or you
end up melting the chocolate chips you add later.)

Whisk together the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla.
Add to the lukewarm butter mixture.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking 
powder.  Fold this into the butter and egg mix.

Now fold in the semi-sweet chips and marshmallows.

Spread in a greased 9x13 inch pan.  Bake at 350 for 30-35
minutes.  Let cool before cutting.

Saturday is also a great day to make up a plate
of goodies and take to a neighbor!
I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
