Disappearing Marshmallow Blondies

You can't eat just one!

Don't say I did not warn you. These tasty little treats just may be the most addicting baked good I have ever made. This recipe was given to me by my boyfriend's mother and they are absolutely perfect. They blondies are made with just the right amount of chocolate that they satisfy the chocolate craving, but are not too rich. You may just eat half the pan before you realize, so be sure to bake them for a crowd. Today I am bringing these to a friend's birthday party and I imagine they are going to be a big hit.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 baking dish.

In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butterscotch chips and butter, stirring constantly until smooth. As soon as the they butter and chips are melted remove from heat and transfer the contents of the pan to a mixing bowl. Be sure not to over heat the butter and butterscotch chips or they will separate and appear curdled. Cool the mixture to room temperature. Using an electric mixer, beat the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and eggs into the butter and butterscotch mixture. You can ad all the ingredients at once. When blended (the batter will be relatively thick) mix in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared ban. Bake for 25 minutes. The center will feel a little soft, but will firm while cooling. Let cool 2 -3 hours before cutting.

Note: The blondies may need an additional 2 to 3 minutes depending on your oven.
