  • Heat the oven to 350°F; coat a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with butter; set aside.
  • Combine 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips and all the butter in a small saucepan.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Whisk sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl until eggs are broken up and smooth.
  • Add chocolate mixture and stir to combine; add flour and baking powder and stir until just incorporated.
  • Add 3/4 cup of the marshmallows and 3/4 cup of the almonds and stir to combine.
  • Transfer batter to the prepared dish and spread evenly.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, about 25 to 30 minutes; remove from the oven.
  • Move the rack to the top of the oven.
  • Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips, marshmallows, and nuts over the surface of the batter.
  • Return to the oven and continue baking until marshmallows are puffed and golden brown, about 10 minutes more.
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
