Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

I’m not sure where they got the name for these brownies, but I like it. Maybe because once you bake them, you watch them disappear so quickly? They did not last in my home especially with chocoholic fiancé, Matty.  That guy lives for anything chocolate!

I asked him to describe them for me and he said they were “very chocolatey”. I agree, they are, but they also have a bit of a blondie feel to them. They have two types of chips: butterscotch and chocolate. I think the addition of butterscotch chips adds to the blondie taste. Brownie or blondie, they are DELISH!

You may have seen a similar recipe in your grandmother’s old cookbooks. It’s a popular recipe in those old vintage church cookbooks that grandmas love. 

They are so yummy when served slightly warm from the oven. The chocolate and marshmallows have that decadent melty gooey-ness. Love the richness of a sweet treat!
