My Favorite Brownies

These are seriously the best brownies ever!!  My girls and I made these a lot last spring/summer for some bake sales, and they were always one of our best sellers!
Here's the recipe:

4 eggs, beaten
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. margarine
1 bag miniature marshmallows

Combine eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla.  Melt margarine and add cocoa.  Add to egg mixture and mix well.  Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  As soon as brownies are taken from the oven, cover w/marshmallows.  Return pan to oven until marshmallows are slightly melted.  Pour chocolate frosting over marshmallows and cool before cutting.

Chocolate Frosting:
1/2 c. margarine, melted
1/3 c. milk
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine margarine, milk, and cocoa.  Beat in sugar and vanilla.

**I've found that these turn out lots better if you make them the night before you want to serve them.  It gives the frosting time to set up and makes it easier to cut them.
**For 8x8 pans, the baking time is 15-20 minutes.
