Rocky Road Brownies

These brownies bring back childhood memories.  My sister-in-law made these brownies when I was growing up and they were such a treat.

Brownies:
1 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1/8 teas. salt
2 teas. vanilla
1 1/2 cup nuts, chopped  (I like to use pecans)
3/4 bag miniature marshmallows

Melt butter.  Add the cocoa and sugar and mix well.  Add the eggs, mix well.  Add flour, salt, vanilla and nuts.  Spread on a greased (use shortening) cookie sheet.  Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove from oven and immediately spread marshmallows over the top single layer.  Return brownies back to oven and back another 5 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed and melted.  Let cool.  Spread frosting on the top of the cooled brownies.

Frosting:

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teas. vanilla
1/8 teas. salt

Combine butter, cocoa, and cream and mix together.  Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and salt.  Mix well and spread on top of the brownies.
