Rich Chocolate Brownies With a Marshmallow Swirl

Posted by Jeanne Sager on June 24, 2012 at 8:00 AM

marshmallow browniesI used to think the only way you could improve on a batch of brownies was to add more chocolate. Ladies and gentleman, I sit here today to confess I was wrong. Behold the miracle that is marshmallow brownies!

Mmm. Hmm. Ooey. Gooey. Marshmallow. It sticks to your fingers and melts on your tongue, and it is a perfect match for the chocolate-y fudge that makes a brownie so sinful. And I've got a little extra bit of yum for you in this recipe for Marshmallow Brownies -- the surprise bit of sweet in here? Butterscotch chips!

Now, to the kitchen! Oh, but don't forget to take this recipe with you:

Marshmallow Brownies (adapted from All Recipes)

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  1. Melt butterscotch morsels and margarine in a large bowl in microwave. Stir the mixture well and let it cool to lukewarm.
  2. While the liquid mixture is cooling, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and eggs into the butterscotch mixture; mix well. Fold in marshmallows and chocolate morsels.
  3. Spread batter into a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan.
  4. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degree or until knife comes out clean.

These look really good!

I recently made some brownies that had pieces of oreo cookies in the batter. Then I topped them with a cookies and cream icing. They were really good!
