Delicious Brownies

I really don’t know why these are called brownies.  They are more like blonde brownies than the normal chocolate brownies. And not even those for heaven sake.  They are full of butterscotch and marshmallows.  But you will never know the marshmallows are there.    Enough about the name.  I know you don’t really care about that.  It is the taste that you care about and you are going to love this little bar cookie.  It is just the perfect size to indulge in without feeling guilty unless you are like some I know and just keep indulging until half the pan is gone. They are easy to make.  In fact they are too easy.  Trying to use up the bag of marshmallows in my pantry I have made them 5 times.  Yes that is correct 5 times.  I love the recipe because you can whip them together in one pan in 10 minutes.  Bake them for 20 minutes.  Then comes the hard part.  Cooling.  You need a couple of hours for this.  They are really soft when they come out of the oven. You could just  eat them  right out of the pan with a spoon but try to restrain yourself because they are more attractive cut into little bars.

Delicious Brownies from  Gracious Goodness Macon Jr. League Cookbook

  • 1/2 cup butterscotch pieces
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup small marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper.  See photo below.  Melt butter and butterscotch over low heat.  Cool to warm, then add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, and vanilla.  Mix well with a wooden spoon.  Fold in chocolate pieces, nuts, and marshmallows.  Spread in 9 inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Mixture will appear soft when it is removed from oven, but it will firm up when it cools.  Remove from the pan using the parchment paper as handles.  Brownies will take a couple of hours to cool.  Cut into bars with a sharp knife.  Enjoy!

Here is what the mixture looks like just before baking. Notice that I mitered the corners of the parchment paper to fit the pan properly.  Use the parchment paper as handles to remove from the pan.  Makes for easy cleaning. 

Happy Cooking,
