Marshmallow Brownies


 I don't know how many other people do what I do with my cooking magazines like Quick Cooking, Taste of Home, and Cook & Tell, but I like to get out all of the past issues for the particular time of year -- for instance, now I'm beginning to get out the ones for May/June and June/July -- and use them to help plan my menus. Almost always, I find some great new recipes I've never tried before or rediscover an old favorite. 

 This week I tried this great recipe to take to a picnic-themed lunch with friends. These brownies were a hit! 


 1 cup butterscotch chips 1/2 cup butter or margarine 2 eggs 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 1 - 1/2 cups flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 2 cups miniature marshmallows 2 cups chocolate chips 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I left these out) In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butterscotch chips with the butter. Cool for 10 minutes, then beat in the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the butterscotch mixture and mix well. Stir in the marshmallows, chocolate chips and the nuts if you are using them. Spread mixture into a greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake at 325º for 25-30 minutes or until brownies test done. Cool before cutting. Yield: 2 to 3 dozen, depending on how large you cut the squares. This recipe is adapted from one in a Taste of Home magazine from 1997. I had never tried the recipe until this year -- 10 years later! These brownies are yummy and different and perfect for a picnic.


  1. I do the same thing you do with my TOH and QC mags! Especially around the holidays, I love to sit down with them and find new recipes. I have two magazine holders full, and now I have a hankering to go look through them! ;)

  2. Hi Susan!

    That's so neat that we both do the very same thing with our cooking magazines! We really get our money's worth out of them, don't we?!

    It really gets me in the mood to cook for the different seasons when I do this.

    Have a blessed Lord's Day tomorrow!
