Mutant Brownies

I made these brownies for the 1st Annual Mutant Triathlon. Unfortunately it rained all morning so the triathlon was postponed. I adapted the recipe from Hershey's "Best Brownie" recipe but stirred pecans and raspberries into the batter and topped it with marshmallows. They definitely looked mutated but tasted great!

Mutant Brownies

1 cup (2 sticks unsalted butter)
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped pecans
6 oz. raspberries
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until melted. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat well. Stir in pecans and raspberries. Pour batter into greased baking pan. Top with marshmallows.

3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Frost if desired. Cut into bars. About 24 brownies.
