Bad Marshmallows!

Jen at Absolutely Bananas gave us this nifty writing prompt- write about a cooking catastrophe!

I am here to tell you marshmallows cannot be added to just any recipe.

I had some marshmallows. I had some brownie mix. And, I needed a dish to take to my potluck.

Can you see where this is headed? I decided I couldn't just make the mix brownies- I had to try for something exciting. So I added a bag of mini marshmallows to the mix before baking it.

I should have figured there is a reason marshmallows are never added to something before baking.

Here is what happened: browned and caramelized marshmallows on top of undercooked brownies. Totally inedible! I had to buy something for the potluck.

Here's my recommendation- DO NOT BAKE MARSHMALLOWS!!!!!

How sad. Next time put the mini marshmellows on top while the brownies are just hot out of the oven
