MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2010

I'm gonna have to go with DOUGANDLYSA and not Taste of Home on this one. I made them with the 3/4 c butter first, but (1.) the batter was not thick as the instructions said they would be and (2.) I baked them longer (about 8 minutes longer), because whenever I checked them they never looked set and it still bubbled. I finally took them out to see if they would just set up as they cooled and noticed it was the extra butter that was bubbling up. They finally did set up, but they were VERY greasy!

I made another batch of the brownie ingredients with just 1/2 c butter. The batter was thick as described in the recipe and they looked more like a brownie when their baking time was done. The consistency - especially after the topping - is a nice, dense, gooey-type brownie. They are super sweet - reminiscent of an Almond Joy.

After reading the comments here, we have retested the recipe and agree the recipe originally had too much butter. It has been revised to 3/4 cup of butter in the brownie batter. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I've made this recipe numerous times and they were great every time. I only use 6 marshmallows as they're not a favorite for my family.

I made them but I think it's too much butter or not enough flour, the brownie bar was way too soft.
