Hot Chocolate Brownies

Hot Chocolate Brownies
1/2 cup butter or hard margarine, melted
1 1/3 cups milk chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups all-purpose (white) flour
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch salt
1 cup miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, melt the butter and 1/3 cup chocolate chips. Let cool slightly. Stir in sugar, then eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Stir in flour, cocoa, salt, and 2/3 cup chocolate chips. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brownies begin to show signs of pulling away from edges. 
Sprinkle with marshmallows and remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips. Bake for 5 more minutes. 

These are absolutely delicious warm but very messy. Though I stress that most squares, especially fudgey brownies, taste best at room temperature you may wish to refrigerate these to firm up so they are a bit less messy, especially in warmer whether. These are named as so because they are very chocolaty, warm, and are topped with marshmallows - just like a cup of hot chocolate!
