Passover Brownies 2.0!

Two days ago I posted a recipe for Passover Brownies.  Well, my Grandma Ellen sent me another recipe, this time for S'mores brownies, and I just had to try them!

4 ounces (1/2 cup) semisweet chocolate chips
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup matzah cake meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups mini marshmallows, or large marshmallows cut up
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional--I omitted)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F, with an oven rack in the center of the oven.
Grease a disposable 8" x 8" or 9" x 13" pan with butter and matzah cake meal.  I used an 8 x 8 pan.  It is really important to use a disposable pan, because these brownies are messy and hard to get out of the pan.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter for about 60 seconds.  Then add in the 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips, and stir until melted.  Microwave for 20 seconds if needed.  Stir in the sugar, and let cool until teped.  Whisk in the eggs one at a time.  Stir in the cake meal and salt.  Last, add in 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 1/2 cups marshmallows, and walnuts if adding.  Pour into the pan, and spread evenly.

Bake for 30-40 minutes.

You now have two options as to how to continue. The first way is how I did it, the second way is how the instructions said to do it...I would *probably* follow the instructions, but seeing as I made these very late last night I misread what I was supposed to do.

1) Let brownies cool for 20 minutes.  Then add marshmallows to the top and broil for about 1 minute.  Take out, and place some chocolate chips on top.  Let melt for a few minutes, and then take a fork and spread the chocolate.

2) After the brownies are set, add marshmallows onto the top and place back in the oven for 3-4 minutes.  The marshmallows should be puffed, not browned.  Remove the brownies from the oven.  You can now add the chocolate chips as above, or melt and place in a bag and drizzle over the top.

Cool the brownies, and place them in the fridge overnight.  Cut the brownies up with a knife that has been run over hot water.   This step is very important, as the marshmallows will otherwise stick to the knife.  You might have to place the knife back under water half-way through.

Put the brownies back in the fridge and enjoy!!
