Exceptional Brownies with mini marshmallows

These brownies are a favorite.  Growing up, we did not eat anything with chocolate in it, thus it took me a very long time to be able to tolerate anything that was very chocolaty.  I still am not very fond of chocolate puddings and most chocolate cake.  If anything is double chocolate, consider it not for me.  I am still not supremely fond of dense brownies such as these, but most who eat them love them.  I tend to prefer chocolate as an enhancing flavor; chocolate and peanut butter are divine.

2 cubes softened butter
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs
1 Tblsp. water
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Add rest of ingredients and beat well.  Pour into a greased 9X13 pan.  Bake at 325* for 40 minutes.  Remove from oven, sprinkle with mini marshmallows and return to oven for close to three minutes.  Cool.  Frost with chocolate frosting.

Chocolate Frosting

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream together.  

I took some of these to a neighbor and got a hug in return!  :)  Another perfect trade.
