Chocolate Marshmallow

It’s another show stopper. While it may look like a brownie base, it resembles a cake in the fact that this recipe is hard to eat without a knife and fork. Not impossible (I am a trooper), just a bit messy, with all that marshmallow yum sticking to everything.

The trick here is to remember that you aren’t browning the marshmallows, you are only softening them. In other words? Give it two minutes then take them out! You want them puffy, not dark brown and crunchy. This is a cut-out from Taste of Home: February/March 1999. I guess it’s been on my “must make” list for a bit then, eh?
