Brownie Fudge
Submitted by: Jezebel Jen
Brownie Base:
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup nuts
Fudge Topping:
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8 inch square pan. Melt margarine in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Add cocoa. Stir until smooth. Set aside. Place sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla, flour and nuts. Pour into greased pan. Bake 25 minutes. Start making the fudge topping when the brownies have baked for 25 minutes. Bake the brownies for another 10 to 15 minutes while you make the Fudge. Combine milk, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add balance of ingredients and stir until all melted. Pour over the still hot brownie base. Cool in pan. NOTE: Timing is important. For the fudge to properly adhere to the brownies, they must both be hot. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to make the fudge. It takes about 35 minutes to cook the brownies. I have never overcooked these brownies -- it is a very moist recipe.
