I like to put the brownies under the broiler after topping them with the marshmallows until they start to toast up a bit. Gives them a roasted marshmallow look and taste. I make them both ways, toasted and not. If you do put them under the broiler, watch them very carefully they toast up REALLY fast and you'd hate to burn them!!
