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.

Chocolate chip cookies are one of America’s most favorite cookies. Did you know that Americans eat 7 billion chocolate chip cookies a year? That equals to 19.2 million a day! WOW is all I have to say! That is a lot of cookies. Most everyone that I know loves chewy chocolate chip cookies. I personally like a more crispy cookie.
This particular recipe has been a hit. I have made it several times. My book club loved it. My tennis team raved about it. I took it to the Bake Sale here and they were a hit. If you love a chewy cookies you are going to love these. Plus they are easy to make. I always love that.
This recipe I am proud to say came from one of my former students Lisa S. I cannot take all of the credit for her great cooking ability because her mom has the same degree as I do and taught my son some of his food preparation skills in the eighth grade. Bless her! As I am writing I can still see Lisa in my classroom preparing food with perfection. Now she is a teacher and a mother in the fine state of Texas. So I share this great chocolate chip recipe from Lisa with a smile and hope that you enjoy it as much as I have and will continue to enjoy it in the future.
