COOKIE BROWNIES WITH FROSTING

It seems my readers enjoy brownie recipes.  For several months, brownie recipes have been receiving more attention than any other type of recipes on this blog.  So for all you brownie lovers out there, here is a tasty but yet a little different brownie recipe.

1 tube (18-oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 pkg (12-oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butter, cut-up
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Press the cookie dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Combine the marshmallows, chocolate chips, and butter together in a large heavy saucepan; cook, stirring, over low heat until melted and smooth.  Remove from pan to a bowl and allow to cool then beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. 

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the chocolate mixture.  Stir in the nuts and spread the mixture over the cookie dough crust.

Bake brownies at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and cool in pan on a wire rack.
FROSTING:
2 cups mini marshmallows
6 tbsp milk
1/4 cup butter
2 squares (1-oz each) unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 cups powdered sugar

Combine the marshmallows, milk, butter, and chocolate in a saucepan.  Cook and stir over low heat until smooth.  Remove mixture from the heat and beat in the powdered sugar.  Spread frosting evenly over the cooled brownies then cut into squares for serving.
