This is a recipe that I created on my own. I get compliments anytime I take these anywhere. The secret is you use a boxed brownie mix. Now I tend to be partial to the Betty Crocker mix, but any 9 x 13 mix will do. If you want to make them Rocky Road Brownies, add 1 cup of chopped nuts to the frosting before you pour it on the brownies.
1 (9 x13) boxed brownie mix
Frosting (recipe below)
Make the brownie mix according to package directions for CAKE LIKE brownies. Bake according to package directions. When brownies are done, cover them with a layer of miniature marshmallows and put back into the oven for a few minutes until marshmallows are nice and puffy. Cool brownies and top with frosting recipe below.
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons water
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Bring 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 4 tablespoons cocoa, 3 tablespoons water, and 3 tablespoons milk to a boil. Remove from heat. While still hot, add confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla. Beat well. Pour frosting over brownies while frosting is still hot. Allow to cool.
