This recipe was Jacob’s pick! I had some leftover mini marshmallows, so I pulled up some interesting recipes with mini marshmallows and let him decide. I probably wouldn’t have picked this recipe on my own, but I’m glad he did because these were easy and really yummy. The texture is great, they’re really gooey and chewy because of the marshmallows that melt into the batter. I’m glad they melted because I’m not a fan of biting into marshmallows in baked goods. Or any dessert actually.
The baking part was scary, because there were a lot of mixed reviews about the timing. I used my dark pans and lowered the baking temp to 335. I baked for 15 minutes, checked, 3 minutes, checked, 2 minutes, checked, then 2 minutes. So, 22 minutes overall, but I kept opening the oven. It’s really hard to tell when they’re done, because you want them to look gooey still, but not get hard and gross.
Somehow, the blondies came out perfectly cooked. It wasn’t too butterscotch-y, which was nice, and I liked the semi-sweet chocolate chips hanging out in there.
I cut the recipe in half, and I was afraid there wasn’t enough dough to fill the bottom of the pan. But it was barely enough.
I also used foil sprayed with cooking spray, and only a little bit stuck to the foil.
