Mississippi Mud Cake

This may not look like much.  But oh my!  It’s very yummy!  The only thing that might improve it is some peanut butter spread under the marshmallows. 

First you need to make a batch of brownies.  I suggest Lady Brownies (without the cream cheese) but probably any brownie would do, especially if they are a bit thick. 

Right after pulling the brownies out of the oven, sprinkle about ½ bag of mini marshmallows (or large ones cut with scissors into about 4 pieces each).  Return to the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until they start melting.  Remove from oven and pour the icing over them.  Swirl a bit if you desire.

1 stick butter
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 pound powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Place the butter, milk and cocoa in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Stir constantly until butter is melted.  Cook for another 2 minutes (stirring constantly) or until mixture thickens slightly.  Beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla (a whisk works well or you can use your mixer).
