I will warn you in advance. You will have to cut these bars into little bitty squares. This may be difficult as they are about 2 inches thick. Do not blame me if you use your calorie allotment for the day eating these; blame Mr. D. He sandwiched two of our favorite cookies, brownies and chococolate no bake cookies, around a filling of marshmallows and butterscotch chips. It is the ultimate chocolate cookie bar. Although my child really couldn’t say a whole sentence before he was three….I’m thinking I may have a genius on my hands.
Now, Mr. D didn’t use my favorite brownie recipe, he used the recipe from the back of the hershey’s cocoa can (which I will repeat below). A perfectly acceptable shortcut would be to make the brownies from a box. He did, however, use my chocolate no bake cookie recipe. Feel free to leave out the butterscotch chips, but the marshmallows must remain.
I will pray that you have the strength not to eat the whole pan.
