Seattle Bars

1/2 c butter or margarine
12oz butterscotch chips
1/2 c dark brown sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 eggs at room temp
1 1/2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
12oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 c mini marshmallows -- sometimes more ;)

Pre-heat oven to 350
In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
Add brown sugar and butterscotch chips -- stir until melted
Remove from heat and let cool
Once cool, mix in vanilla and eggs
In separate bowl, combine flour and baking flour and add to butter mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly
Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows
Spread in a greased 9x13 baking pan
Bake for 25-30 minutes
Cool on rack and cut into squares

Additional Information

The recipe originally calls for pecans. Since I do not like pecans (and I am overly cautious about putting nuts in things served at large gatherings), they get omitted. If you want, you can put them back in: 1 c chopped pecans get added with the chocolate chips and marshmallows.

I have also learned that the baking time will vary depending on what type of pan you use (glass vs metal vs stoneware)

In the past I have made this recipe with margarine, egg beaters, splenda brown sugar and whole wheat flour -- I have never received a complaint and the eaters never mentioned anything to me other than they want the recipe

If you want to get fancy-schmancy, you can melt a 2 squares of Baker's white chocolate and drizzle it on top after it has cooled. Again, I have never had any complaints about this either! ;)
