These brownies are impressive to look at! I have an interview tomorrow to teach cooking classes to school aged children and I thought "What a better way to impress the interviewers than by bringing some of my own baking with me!" I love baking and this will be the first of many blog posts following my healthy and not so healthy recipes!

1-1/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips (dark or semi-sweet)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9 -inch square baking pan

2. Stir together marshmallows, chocolate chips and nuts, set aside. Place butter in large microwave safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until melted. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla; beat with spoon until well blended. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; stir until well blended. Spread batter in prepared pan.

3. Bake 22 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chip mixture over top. Continue baking 5 minutes or until marshmallows have softened and puffed slightly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Using wet knife, cut into squares. Makes about 20 brownies
