Brownies with marshmallows and love

I've debated whether or not to put this post on the food porn page; it's about as caloric and fulfilling as you get!
Well, the story behind these brownies is this- it was my turn to bring the treat box for my tennis team, and I was scrambling to come up with ideas on how to feed an army teenagers, besides the traditional (and much-welcomed) Gatorade and granola bars. My brain rested on the homey idea of brownies, then scrambled for ways to put an interesting twist on them. Using my usual brownie recipe from, I added marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. The result? Delicious! The conclusion? (And a tip) Hard to cut, so I would cut the brownies first before putting the marshmallows on top. Also, I skipped on the nuts, as I'm not a huge fan of nuts in brownies, but that's totall optional.

*¾ cup butter (170 g)
*1½ cup sugar (330 g)
*2 teaspoon vanilla
*3 eggs
*¾ cup all-purpose flour (85 g)
*½ cup cocoa powder (50 g)
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*a pinch of salt (optional)
*3 oz (100 g) chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
*1 cup (or varying amounts, depending on taste) mini marshmallows
*1 cup dark chocolate chips


1.) Preheat oven to 350 deg F (Gas mark 4 or 180 deg C).
2.) Line a 13 x 9 in (33 x 23 cm) cake tin with grease proof or other non-stick paper and grease the tin. Melt the butter.
3.) Beat eggs with sugar, and add vanilla, flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt (optional) and melted butter.
4.) Add chopped nuts.
5.) Bake at 350 degrees until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, approximately 20-30 minutes
6.) Sprinkle marshmallows and chocolate chips on top of cake
7.) Bake for another 2-3 minutes, or until marshmallows are partially melted
8.) Take pan out, let brownies cool, then cut.
