    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
    2. In a large bowl stir together the white sugar and cocoa. Mix in the melted butter until well blended. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the chocolate mixture. Fold in walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
    3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven until the cake starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from the oven and cover with an even layer of miniature marshmallows. Return to the oven for about 2 to 3 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan.
    4. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine brown sugar, water and unsweetened chocolate. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla until well blended. Mix in the icing sugar until smooth. Spread over the marshmallow layer. Allow icing to set before cutting into bars.

    These are great!! With a cup of butter I don't see how the other reviewers thought they were dry. Anyway, it helps to make sure the marshmallow layer is completely cool before you spread on your frosting. I popped mine in the freezer for a bit. I actually made a double batch of the frosting and that gave a nice thick layer of chocolate on top. Yummy. Don't worry about measuring the marshmallows exactly. Just a nice covering on top is enough.  -  05 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I really shouldn't review this since I made so many mods. But, I just used a box of low fat brownies mix and baked according to directions. Then added mallows. Made fudge frosting with 1/2 c. butter, 1/4 cup cocoa, 6 T milk-heat and stir until boil. remove from heat, add 4 c powdered sugar. Top brownies with when cooled.  -  11 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My grandmother used to make these, and I was thrilled to find the recipe to look and taste the exact same! I followed it exactly, but doubled the frosting as one reviewed suggested. They turned out great. I let them cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then put the pan in the freezer while I made the frosting. These were a hit at my family's Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone remembered them and thought they were great.  -  06 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
