Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies


Oh do I have the dessert for you! Now these little brownies are a hidden gem from the past I tell you. Go out and buy the ingredients now because you will want these brownies after you read this!

So hubby was out of town on business last week for a majority of the week so I decided to host a little impromptu dinner for some darling gal pals of mine. There were 4 of us total and between us, my Halloween mix (that's a whole other story)and the fabulous weather outside we had a great time and were able to solve the worlds problems...at least most of them:)

For dinner I cooked a Parmesan Chicken with Apricot Sauce,Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping and Crawfish Bread. All very yummy but the fun didn't stop there. I had to try out a Momou recipe of course. And I am apparently just like my precious grandmother...we both have more dessert recipes then we do anything else:) I get it honestly for sure! So I choose a dessert recipe from her collection and decided upon Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies. These brownies are not your typical brownies. They are not chocolate like most brownies BUT they have chocolate chips, pecans, marshmallows and butterscotch chips. That combo should not even be allowed because it could be deadly! The recipe is below for your taking.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies
Makes 12 to 18 Brownies

Part 1
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 9 inch square baking pan. Melt above ingredients in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat cool to lukewarm.

Part 2
3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

Add to butterscotch mixture in saucepan; mix well.

Part 3
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Fold into butterscotch batter just until combined, about 5 strokes. Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Do not over bake. Center will be jiggly but becomes firm upon cooling.

These brownies were oohed and ahhed over at dinner and then finished off by my hubby and small group girls the next night. Go grab these ingredients and get ready for some ooey, gooey yumminess!
