"My mother jokes that if she had a nickel for every pan of these she's made, she'd be wealthy! They are so rich, so sweet, and so good! Cut in small squares."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 cup of butter. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa until smooth. Mix in the white sugar, eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix in the flour, then fold in pecans and marshmallows. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let cool in pan.
  4. To make the frosting: In a medium saucepan, melt together 1/2 cup of butter and 1/3 cup of cocoa. Mix in confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in the milk, a tablespoon at a time until icing is a nice spreading consistency.

If you need a chocolate fix, this is it! There is more sugar than needed in this recipe. I cut it down to 1-1/2 cups for the brownie (the flour/sugar ratio should be the same). Instead of mix...

Wow!! Very rich, and very good! My family has had this recipe for years. The only difference is that we cover the brownies with the marshmallows after they've baked (as one reviewer suggested...

These are dangerously delicious! I made the brownie with 1 & 1/2 cups of sugar instead of 2 cups and made 1/2 the frosting and they were still perfect for flavor. They are a little bit messy t...

These are deliciously sinful! The recipe comments indicate they are sweet, so I don't understand the surprise of the critical rater. Couldn't you figure out from the list of ingredients before y...

I'm not allowed to make any other desserts... This one is in very high demand. I've made it 4-5 times already and it actually turns out a little different each time....

This dish was devoured by my health conscious sister-in-law and her boyfriend before and after they hit the slopes. It had such an impact that they even dream about them! I omitted the nuts, and...

This recipe was good. Left out the nuts due to allergies. I did omit 1 cup powdered sugar from the frosting. It would've been way to sweet otherwise. Not my favorite brownie recipe, but my fathe...
