grandma sharp's marshmallow brownies

This is one of my most cherished recipes -- a true comfort to me. These are my grandma's brownies. I have no idea where she happened upon this recipe, but I've never had any like this and don't expect to.

  1. In two 8x8 baking pans (grandma always used metal pans), melt 1 stick of margarine in each.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar and cocoa.
  3. Add the melted butter from both pans and the 4 eggs, and mix well.
  4. Blend in the flour and mini marshmallows.
  5. Distribute batter evenly into both 8x8 pans.
  6. Bake both pans at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until puffy and slightly browned on top.
Don't bake any longer! These are wonderfully rich and gooey, but turn hard quickly if cooked too long.

I will have to limit myself to making these when we will be sharing them with other people. I have a brownie weakness—it's the perfect combination of chocolate and gooey deliciousness that makes me swoon.

The boys loved them and they were fun to make, so it's a great play date dessert (when served with strawberries for the appearance of modeling healthy eating habits!).
