Homemade Brownies #2

I found another homemade brownie you don't have to buy those boxed mixes. :)

The book called them Final Exam Brownies (But what does that mean?  You can't tell that they are a homemade recipe from that!)

1 cup cocoa*
1 cup REAL butter (melted)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar*
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt the butter completely, and mix in the cocoa.  Add sugars, vanilla, and eggs and mix well.  Add the flour last and mix well.  Then use a spatula to fold in the marshmallows and half the chocolate chips.
Spread in a 9x13 pan and sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

Here's my differences...
I have the cocoa marked because you can sub dry cocoa powder for melted unsweetened chocolate.  And this is what I did.  It calls for 4 one-ounce squares of chocolate.  It is 1/4 cup cocoa for every ounce of chocolate if you are going to sub.
Then I did not have enough sugar, and since my other homemade brownie recipe uses 1 cup brown and 1 cup white that is what I did for this recipe too.  But the original recipe says to just use 2 cups of white sugar only.  No brown sugar.  They still taste great!  Just goes to show you can mix things up a little sometimes, within reason and get the same result! :)
