Spanky's Favorite: Marshmallow Brownies

Marshmallow Brownies

1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour

Combine dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl, melt butter in microwave. Add sugar and vanilla. Pour in with dry ingredients and add eggs. Mix well, but not too much, should still be lumpy. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. After baking them, turn oven off so it is still warm. Arrange mini marshmallows in a single layer on top of the brownies and put pan back in oven long enough for the marshmallows to melt. Remove from oven and let cool. Frost with favorite chocolate frosting.

Crafternoon was a success! While I know this picture doesn't necessarily represent "crafternoon"... it is one of the things that went on here today...I haven't finished my curly bows that Christie so generously and expertly taught us how to make. I will post a pic later... We got a lot of headbands made!!! Anyone have a final count?
We'll be doing it again!

This an' That... (Oatmeal Scotchies)

I did not get to play today... rainy days call for snuggling and a good movie, Lynn picked "Superman /returns"... Ash has a little crush on the "S" dude.
We did make these yummy cookies:Oatmeal Scotchies
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups old fashioned or quick oats
1 2/3 cup butterscotch chips

Cream butter, shortening and sugars together. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients, except chips. Add this mixture to the wet mixture gradually. Mix in chips last. Bake in oven at 375 for 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies, 9-10 for crisp cookies. Let cool and enjoy!
And here's a couple of projects I did last week...
