Rocky Road or Mississippi Mud Brownies

I found this recipe in a cookbook my mother-in-law gave me with recipes from the state of Utah. The original title for these brownies was "The Huntsman Family's Favorite Brownies". The Huntsmans are a prominent family in Utah (previously the Governer of Utah).

We gave this recipe a run through last month and followed the directions exactly. We weren't so sure that the finished product was correct, or that the recipe had been printed correctly. This time, we didn't quite follow the recipe and we tweaked a few things, and love the result - so we changed the name. This is a rocky road or mississippi mud type of brownie. Gooey and OH! So, VERY sweet!

4 eggs beaten
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
2 t. vanilla
1 c. butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 of a 16 oz bag (8 oz.) miniature marshmallows

Combine eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla.

Melt margarine and add cocoa, stir. Add to egg mixture and beat well.

Bake in a 9x13 inch pan at 375* for 30 minutes.

As soon as brownies are taken from the oven, cover with marshmallows. Return pan to oven until marshmallows are slightly melted.

Pour chocolate frosting over marshmallows and cool before cutting.
