We all know I'm not one for baking, but sometimes the occasion just calls for it! Be it for the Super Bowl, Valentine's Day or just because you feel like baking and eating something sweet, sometimes a girl's just gotta bake.
Whenever I do feel like baking I don't try to get too fancy and I go back to the classics I grew up with. Like banana bread or these mini cheesecakes! So the last time I felt like baking I wanted to whip up another classic: one of my favorite sweet treats, Marshmallow Brownies.
It's funny, I've eaten these dozens of times throughout my whole life and it never once occured to me that they're not technically brownies. Sure, they're chewy and fudgy and decadent as ever, but they actually resemble a blondie more than a brownie. It only took 27 years and making these for my too-smart-for-his-own-good boyfriend, Cole only for him to point this pretty obvious fact out to me to realize it. Go figure!
Neverthless, whether they're brownies or blondies, who really cares? This recipe combines the best of both worlds, and then some. The batter actually starts with melted butterscotch chips and butter (uh, yeah) which creates for a sticky, rich base. And because this is dessert and you should only just go all out, you then add a healthy dose of chocolate chips, marshmallows (obviously) and walnuts for crunch. When they come out of the oven they're golden brown and smell like heaven. So you can only imagine just how glorious they taste!
