Marshmallow Peanut-butter Brownies

These ooey gooey treats have the look of a gourmet brownie, but they start off with a chocolate cake mix and are thrown together in no time.   The middle layer boasts fluffy, melty marshmallows and peanut butter morsels.  Sounds like a winning combination, right??  It totally is.  I took these to a gathering of friends and everyone loved them!

Yields: 24 brownies
Time: about 45 minutes
Print Recipe

3/4 C sweetened condensed milk, divided
1/4 C butter, melted and cooled
1/4 C milk (I used skim)
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
3/4 of (10 oz) bag of mini marshmallows 
2/3 C peanut butter morsels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

With an electric mixer, combine 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk, milk, butter, cake mix, and egg white. Mixture will be very thick. Line a 9x13 pan with foil, spray with cooking spray. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the pan. Use either floured hands, or spray your hands with cooking spray in order to press it down without having it stick to your fingers. The layer will be thin. Bake for 10 minutes.

Combine 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk and marshmallows in a medium sauce pan, melt over medium heat, stirring often until smooth, remove from heat and stir in peanut-butter morsels. Spread marshmallow layer over brownie layer in pan. Then take the rest of the brownie dough and scoop out spoonfuls into your hand and smoosh it out into flat pieces and lay them on top of the marshmallow mixture. 
It will look like this before putting it in the oven

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before removing the foil and cutting into squares. You will want to eat one right out of the oven, but trust me they taste better if you let them cool.
