Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Bars

Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Bars

  • 1 cup shortening (I used Imperial and cut 2 T)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (I cut 2 T)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I like to sprinkle 1/2 c. mini chips instead)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in marshmallows, chips and walnuts. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 23-26 minutes or until golden brown (they will be moist still because of the marshmallows!) Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

Russell and I gobble these up. The kids like them too but they don't get to eat them all day like the parents do. The marshmallow makes the perfect amount of moistness/gooeyness/sweetness.

I forgot to tell you that I made this. Yours looked lots better than mine and mine had the same prob as polka dot brownies---raw in the middle. I also didn't really like the gooey part so much. But ethan and noelle did.
