"These brownies were very fudgy, but nothing too special."

"I recall preparing these brownies and I substituted peanut butter chips for butterscotch chips! I've omitted the nuts since nuts are a food which a number of people are either sensitive to or else don't care for. In fact, I've put this recipe to use from time to time! I greased and floured my baking pan! Thank you, Renee Schwebach for this recipe! It's been a keeper for me! I enjoy different varieties of brownie recipes to prepare! delowenstein"

"The marshmallows are supposed to melt in these brownies, not stay whole. They are what give the brownies a different texture than regular brownies. They are kind of difficult to get out of the pan without making a mess, but I think they're worth it!"

"Very good! The melted marshmallows gives them a bit of a fluffy (for lack of a better word) texture on the top, yet they're gooey and not cakey."

"I love the taste they are AWESOME! However, difficult to tell when they are done baking. I took them out after the 25 min worried about over baking them. Then let them cool and tried one and it was like dough so I put them back in for about 10 min and they were good. I love them! Thank you for the recipe! They are very easy to make too!"

"They are very yummy, but they took 45 min. to bake, not the 30 the recipe said. Plus they are very hard to get out of the pan. I may try them again and use parchment paper to line the pan. If they are still that hard to get out, I may not make them again."
