Yummy Wednesday - Disappearing Marshmallow Bars

Whoa.  These things are crazy - gooey, sweet, a little salty, just enough chocolate to balance the butterscotch - crazy, I tell ya!  My youngest sister, Kayla, wanted these made for her Graduation Party this summer...  I was a little skeptical - but they were the first food to disappear!  (Warning: have a glass of milk nearby - they are rich!)

Disappearing Marshmallow Bars
from and recommended by Kayla.  (Don't worry, Kay, I won't tell about the first time you made them!)

You'll need:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup butterscotch chips
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows  (Hint: 2 cups marshmallows does not equal 16 oz!)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

To make:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

2) Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butterscotch chips and butter together in the microwave, stirring occasionally until smooth.  Set aside to cool.

3) In a large bowl, stir together the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix in the melted butterscotch chips, then the flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth.  Stir in the marshmallows and chocolate chips last.  Spread evenly into the prepared baking pan.

4) Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in preheated oven.  Cool, and cut into squares.

Makes 24 bars.

Things I am thankful for today:

1.  Another workout.  Uffda.
2.  An old high school friend doing an audition tape for SNL - too cool!  (Adam, you'd be great!)
3.  Homemade banana bread...
4.  A good job evaluation. So nice.
5.  A clean house.
6.  Fresh flowers on the dining room table.
7.  Things to look forward to.
8.  A glass of wine... or two.
9.  Grilled corn on the cob and watermelon - I can't get enough of either!
10.  The hubby gave the dog a bath...  Both are happier now!
