I had a long day yesterday. Like at-the-hospital-for-9-hours-with-a-1-year-old-while-my-husband-had-surgery long. (The surgery was to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. Don’t worry–he’s going to be just fine.)
I was exhausted because the night before the baby decided to stay awake until midnight and then proceeded to wake up 4 more times. It’s like she knew I needed to wake up at 6 am the next day.
So naturally, my only recourse was to make myself some brownies once we were settled at home.
But not just plain brownies though. I wanted something special.
So I used this brownie recipe again, because it is seriously delicious. But I mixed the chocolate chips into the batter instead of just placing them on top.
I poured just enough batter to coat the bottom of my pan. Then I placed Nutter Butters on top. Then I covered them up with the remaining batter.
After 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven, I covered the top of the brownies with large marshmallows and popped it back in the oven for another 5 minutes. The marshmallows weren’t as brown as I wanted them to be, so I then put them underneath the broiler for about a minute. Be sure to keep an eye on it, because the marshmallows toast quickly.
The brownies are chewy, the chocolate chips are gooey. You get a crunchy peanut butter flavor from the Nutter Butters, complimenting the rich chocolate perfectly. Then you have the warm, fluffy, oozing toasted marshmallows on top.
The ultimate cure for any long day.
And perfect for breakfast the next morning.
