Brownies Deluxe Recipe:
2 sticks margarine
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar
1 ½ cup flour
1 heaping teaspoon baking power
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick margarine
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
2/3 c evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
2/3 to 1 bag of mini marshmallow (to pour on brownies)
1 box powder sugar
Melt 2 sticks margarine and 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, (1 sq/oz = 6 T Hershey’s Cocoa Powder), in a double boiler.
In a large bowl beat 4 eggs and add 2 cups sugar.
In a small bowl sift 1½ cups flour and 1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix into egg mixture.
Add melted chocolate/margarine and 1 teaspoon vanilla to mixed egg and flour.
Spread batter into 11 x 15 pan sprayed with PAM. I use a broiler pan.
Bake 350 for 30 min or when toothpick comes out clean. If you use a broiler pan, it may take only 25 minutes to cook.
Icing: Melt 1 stick margarine, 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, 2/3 c evaporated milk and 1 c sugar in the double boiler. Stir occasionally while brownies bake. When brownies are done baking, remove from oven and pour 2/3 to 1 bag of mini marshmallow over top of brownies.
Add 1 box powdered sugar to the choc icing and continue to stir and cook over double boiler until all the powdered sugar has been melted and the icing is smooth.
Remove upper pan from double boiler, dry off bottom so it does not drip onto brownies and pour icing over top of marshmallows. Let cool. Cover and let stand overnight to set icing. Freezes well.
If you don’t have the unsweetened choc squares, you can use Hershey’s Cocoa Powder instead of the squares.

I posted pictures of this last month when I went to my family reunion. These brownies are very decadent desserts. As an adult who strives to eat healthy, I am now baffled that my mom made these my whole childhood! They are sooo rich. I had one at my family reunion–the first time since I’ve lost 100 pounds–and was blown away by how sweet they are. I wonder, “How the hell did I eat multiples of these brownies as a kid?”
QUESTION: Can you somehow ALTER this recipe and make it healthier (yet still a good dessert)?
