Rocky Road Cookie Bars

1/2 cup sifted flour
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 TBSP butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 12oz package chocolate chips
Beat with mixer first 7 ingredients, EXCEPT for the nuts. Add nuts and stir, pour into greased 9×12-inch pan(I used 8×8 because there seemed to be sooo little batter I didn’t even think it would spread out. But it does puff up quite a bit so perhaps you should stick with the original plan). Bake for 15-20 minutes. Immediately layer with 3 last ingredients(since I used and 8×8 pan I used half the amount of the toppings).
Bake for another 5-7 minutes. Remove and swirl topping with knife. Cool and cut into squares.
These turn out very gooey and not so fun to cut. But considering the fact that they are from a home economics cookbook, they are pretty good. I would like to go back and try it in the 9×13 inch pan to see what kind of difference it would make.
