1 ½ cups sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 ¼ cups chocolate chips, divided

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a piece of parchment paper in an 8” square pan – use a long enough piece to create small flaps that hang over the edge of the pan as “handles”.
Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray and set aside.
Add the sugar, butter and salt to a medium sized microwave-safe bowl.
Put the bowl in the microwave for 1-1 ½ minutes making sure the butter is fully melted and stir.
Add in the cocoa and vanilla extract and stir to incorporate. Next, add the eggs, and stir.

Place the pan back in the oven on broil for a couple of minutes – standing by watching to make sure the marshmallows do not brown too much. (Make sure to keep an eye on it cause it happens fast.)

Take the pan out of the oven when the marshmallow topping is browned to the way you want it.
Cool the dessert by placing the pan on a wire cooling rack for up to two hours before removing it from the pan.
