Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies

30 Jun


Now this is a brownie – moist, chewy and densely chocolate. I was in the mood to bake last night, and decided I’d use what I had in my pantry (or, you know, the tiny cabinet in my tiny kitchen) instead of going to the store. This is exactly what I wanted…plus, I added some mini marshmallows to keep things interesting.

Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies
makes about 12 large brownies/adapted from this recipe

Here’s what I used:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows

Here’s what I did:

  1. Blend together flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl – set aside.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter together until smooth – I used the microwave because I was feeling lazy.
  3. Stir in sugar and vanilla.
  4. Stir in eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated.
  5. Blend in the dry ingredients completely.
  6. Stir in the mini marshmallows.
  7. Spray an 8 x8 baking pan and pour in batter.
  8. Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 – 45 minutes.
  9. Let cool completely on a wire wrack before cutting.

So I’m eating my last little blondie as I write…yum. This was a special order for the recent Mexicana Monday extravaganza – so much fun! The recipe I used is amazingly easy – and you can experiment with different additions as the mood strikes. I highly recommend using almond extract and white chocolate chips…holy hell yeah.
