Brownies in a Cloud

WARNING: The richness of these brownies has earned them the name "sinful" among my family for good reasons. Be aware of sudden addictions and disappearing acts when these brownies are made, as well as prepared for more compliments than you dare count.

If you are not a marshmallow fan, these may not be for you. But for everyone else, prepare to be amazed! Even I will eat these and that's saying a lot since I don't like chocolate. The recipe for the brownie is wonderful: perfectly moist but not too cake-y; the marshmallows add that something special that every brownie should have {every brownie should have something special, right?}; and the frosting is the very best frosting ever! I use it all the time because I just love how delicious is turns out each time I make it. Go knock yourself out!

Brownies in a Cloud
Karlene Cobbley
2 cubes softened butter
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
4 eggs
1½ cups flour
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup nuts {optional - I've never added these and it's a decision I have never regretted}

Combine butter, sugar and cocoa; blend till smooth. Add eggs one at a time; mix well. Add flour slowly, beat until smooth, and then add vanilla. Pour in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake @ 350o for 30 minutes.

While brownies are still hot {before taking them out of the oven}, cover with miniature marshmallows {don't be shy about that covering bit either - go ahead and dump bunches of marshmallows on there} and bake until they are light brown or melted {about 3 minutes}. Let cool completely.

Combine all together and beat until smooth

2 cups powdered sugar
1½ - 2 Tbsp Cocoa
½ cube soft butter
¼ cup milk
