Grandma Malaska's Brownies

Every summer we made the trip to utah to visit our grandparents. When we drove in to Rose Park Salt Lake city late at night Grandma would always have either spaghetti, or a hot bowl of canned chili and tamales and a pan of her brownies. They were divine. Always dense but still with a hint of cakeyness, and the frosting was the best accent. I always had to try not to eat alot of them because I would get sick and not want to eat the rest of her great foods, but that was childhood.

4 squares baking chocolate

1 cup butter

4 eggs

1 3/4 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 package mini marshmallows

chocolate icing

1/2 cup cocoa powder

4 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup softened butter

Melt butter and baking chocolate together. In a separate bowl beat eggs and sugar, then add butter/chocolate mixture. in another bowl mix dry ingredients, then add them to the batter.

Fold in nuts.

Pour into a greased 9X13 baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees. When done, top with marshmellows and return to oven for a couple minutes till the marshmallows puff. Cool before frosting with chocolate icing.

Thats it!
