Cookie Recipe of the Week: Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies - Easy Blonde Brownies Recipe Variation

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies are not brownies at all.

Rather they are blondies – a brownies recipe variation flavored with brown sugar rather than cocoa. And this one is also flavored with butterscotch chips.

And another misnomer: marshmallows in the cookie dough don’t actually “disappear.” They melt!

Sugar bonds in the marshmallows begin to break down when temperatures are at 103 degrees F or higher. So once you put the blondies into a heated oven, the marshmallows’ spongey texture begins to to turn to “liquid” and seep into the cookie dough.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 20-25 minutes
Makes about 3 -3 ½ dozen cookies
