1Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with butter; set aside.
2Combine 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.
3Whisk 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.
4Transfer 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.
5Move 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.

Basic Vegetable Soup
This soup is an equally wonderful way to use up all the leftover veggie odds and ends in your fridge, or to celebrate the freshest produce in season by buying it specifically for the dish (and if you get a CSA box, it can serve both purposes). Whatever vegetables you use, this is an easy, nutritious, and delicious meal, and endlessly customizable. Fresh pesto makes a great, vibrant garnish, but you could also simply sprinkle on a bit of grated Parmesan and cracked black pepper.
