Yield:
4 dozen brownies
Level:
Intermediate

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Frosting:
  • 4 ounces (4 squares) unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup pasteurized egg substitute (recommended: Egg Beaters)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a 2-quart bowl in the microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the eggs, sugar, and vanilla and mix well with a spatula. Add the flour and stir to combine. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes.

While the brownies are baking, make the frosting. Melt the chocolate and butter in a medium bowl in the microwave on high for 3 minutes stirring every 20 to 30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the egg substitute, vanilla, and sugar and stir with a spoon until smooth. Stir in the marshmallows; they will soften but not melt completely. Spread the frosting over the warm brownies. The frosting will set up when the brownies are completely cooled. When cool, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares and store in the refrigerator in a plastic container with a snap-on lid.

Needs a whole pound of butter! Paula does not mess around. Let them sit overnight (if able easier to cut the next day, I just left mine on the kitchen counter. I used semi-sweet chocolate for the frosting and it worked out fine. I am going to make them again and give them as gifts, they are that good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I never eat chocolate and I ate two pieces. I halved the recipe so mine would come out thin, then I topped with the icing and cut them into brownie bars. BIG HIT! People were actually hugging me! The icing is some of the best chocolate icing I have ever eaten. Will def be playing with the recipe to create it creamer for cake decorating. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Well, thee brownies just came out of the oven! The batter was easy enough and looks delicious! The frosting also looks very decadent and yummy. But, I had no idea really of what egg substitutes were so I just used almost one cup of milk instead. Thank you Paula for the best brownies in the world! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made these brownies several times now for different occasions and they are always a hit! My family says a brownie isn't a brownie without walnuts, so I always add toasted walnuts to the frosting. They are very rich, but oh so good! Totally love this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Haven't tried this recipe yet. Have a question. Why is it necessary to add egg to the frosting? item not reviewed by moderator and published
