Hot Cocoa Brownies.

One of my favorite food bloggers is Sugarplum.  I enjoy seeing what comes out of her kitchen and hearing her stories of food competitions and her desire to attend culinary school.  I even got to see her on TV a few times – thanks to the Food Network and my parents television!

Recently she posted a recipe for hot cocoa brownies.  How could I not re-create them – the name itself sounds delightful!  The recipe calls for an 8x8 pan which is perfect for a household of two!

Hot Cocoa Brownies
(Adapted from Sugarplum)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips, divided
1 cup mini marshmallows

In a large bowl, mix together butter, sugar and egg until well combined. Add dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips.  Place batter into an 8x8 baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Top with remaining milk chocolate chips

Bake 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Top with marshmallows, flattening them with your fingertips as you place them on top of the brownies.  Sprinkle cocoa powder over the top.

We enjoyed these with some vanilla ice cream.  They were the perfect mix of chewy with a slightly crunchy top.  The mix of milk chocolate and white chocolate chips was also added to the tastiness of these treats.
