Awesome Marshmallow Brownies!

I never liked marshmallow. When you eat it as it is, it tasted and felt like sweetened sud! I know it's an odd way of describing it but that's how I felt when I first tasted it! When someone tells me they love marshmallow especially my husband and my children, i would say 'yucks!' and make a face. Even though I don't fancy marshmallow it doesn't mean I should deprive my family of it. I find that I'd prefer marshmallow in a brownie. It added gooey texture to it and at the same time, because of the sugar content, it make the top very crispy.

See how moist it is. The marshmallows will rise to the top of the brownie as it bakes and when it's done and cooled, you will get the crispy top. As you slice the brownie, you will get a 'stringy' effect that sticks to your knife just like when you cut a slice of pizza and the mozarella cheese being pulled away. This is a great recipe which your family will love it.

The marshmallow melted at the top and leave a crispy top.
