This is one of my favorite recipes! When I have taken it to other places, I have received a number comments about how good these brownies are. The first time I made it, I was a little skeptical because (1) the cake mix part doesn't seem like enough dough to cover the pan and have enough remaining for dropping by the spoonful, and (2) when I did drop the remaining batter, it sat on top and looked a little gross. There was plenty of cake mix, though, and when the brownies had finished cooking, the marshmallow mixture had risen to the level of the batter, and the brownies looked good. Make sure you use just enough cooking spray so that the brownies don't stick but not any more because it collects at the ends (or it does for me). The only time these have messed up for me is when I decided to throw in (a lot) more peanut butter chips (because I had them, and who wouldn't like more peanut butter chips?), but they made the marshmallow consistency too heavy, and it didn't rise correctly, leaving the batter on top. Even that time, though, people told me how good they were. No one would think they were a "light" brownie. Thanks for posting this recipe, hannahactually! I would strongly encourage others to try it.

I dont know what happened with these but they turned out horrible. The marshmellow mixture stuck to the sides of the pan and turned hard, and the brownies fell completely apart when I tried to cut them into squares and they tasted awful. Maybe I did something wrong but I dont know what it could have been. Sorry but I wouldnt make these again.
