Ingredients
Topping:
  • 1¼ cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
Batter:
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one 9x9x2 inch square pan; lightly grease the pan with shortening.
Batter:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs; use an electric mixer or wooden spoon and beat until well blended. Add cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt; stir until well mixed.
  3. Bake: Spread batter in pan. Bake 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached.
  4. Sprinkle the chocolate chip mixture over the top of the baked brownie. Continue baking another 5 minutes or until the marshmallows have softened and puffed slightly, and are very lightly browned. Leave brownie in pan to cool; place baking pan on a wire cooling rack to cool. Cut into 2 inch squares.
Tip: My favorite tool to cut bar cookies is a stainless steel dough scraper; simply push the dough scraper straight down into the cookie for straight cuts. Or use a pizza cutter or small kitchen knife to cut the cookie into bars.
