Fancy Brownies

My co-worker Naomi made some amazing brownies, so I asked her for the recipe. She said she doesn't really have a recipe, she just adds/substitutes a couple of ingredients. I had to give it a try. 

Start with a box of Duncan Hines brownie mix. The family size makes a 13x9 inch pan. I followed the directions for cake-like brownies. The secret is the addition of mini-marshmallows, chocolate chips, and Bailey's Coffee Liquor instead of water. They were absolutely delicious. The amount of chocolate chips and mini marshmallows is up to you. I used about 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows - most of which I folded into the batter at the end of mixing.

I sprinkled the rest on top before putting it into the oven to bake for 30 minutes. When the marshmallows are toasty and golden on top, it's probably ready. 

As for the Bailey's, the recipe called for 1/4 cup of water, so I substituted 1/4 cup of Bailey's, which equaled one mini bottle. Next time I might add two mini bottles to give it a little more coffee flavor. Yum! 

Next time you have a chocolate craving, these will definitely hit the spot! I might never eat plain-'ol-straight-from-the-box brownies again.
