Magic Brownies




We need to have a little talk about these brownies.  They are magical.  Seriously!  They are my most favorite brownie recipe on the planet.  My mom has been making them as long as I can remember and I like to think I've perfected the recipe.  I hope my kids will someday love them as much as I do and remember me making them. 

 Anyway, here is the coveted recipe:


Magic Brownies aka Smarshmallow Brownies
2 cubes butter (not margarine!)
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract (optional but oh so yummy)
1 bag mini marshmallows


Cream together butter, sugar, and cocoa powder.  Add eggs, beating well after each one.  Add flour, salt, and extracts.  Mix well until nice and creamy.  Spray a cookie sheet with Pam and spread evenly.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Take out of oven and cover with the mini marshmallows.  Put back in oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes, until they are nice and puffy and a tiny bit browned.  Pull them out and let the cool completely!


Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 cups powdered sugar
2-4 TBSP milk
1 tsp vanilla


Cream the butter and cocoa powder,add powdered sugar and vanilla.  Then add enough milk to make it nice and creamy, not too stiff and not too runny.  If so, add more milk or powdered sugar, appropriately.  Then frost brownies, but make sure they are TOTALLY cool (like me,ha ha) or the marshmallows will make a giant yummy mess.  


Oh help me Rhonda!   These are the BEST!!

Those look so delicious to me! Though I'm not sure I could make them just now. My will-power is at an all-time low and I would have a hard time not devouring the entire pan!

I saw these linked on today's post- I have to ask- 2 cubes of butter do you mean 2 sticks? I really think I want to make these with Ian this weekend but I don't want to over or under butter them. LOL They look amazing.
