toasted marshmallow brownies

Toasted Marshmallow brownies
for brownies:
1/2 cup (1 stick) room temp butter
1 cup. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup all purpose flour

frosting:
1, 7oz container of Toasted Marshmallow creme
1/2 cup room temp butter
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

chocolate glaze:
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate
2 T. butter
2 T. milk
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar

Preheat to 325°
Lightly spray 8x8 pan with baking spray.
Combine butter, sugar and vanilla and beat until combined.  Add in eggs and melted unsweetened chocolate.
Mix until incorporated.
  Stir in flour.
Spread into prepared pan.
Bake for 25 min or until a toothpick inserted 1" from edge of pan comes out clean.

While brownies are cooling make your frosting.
Beat together your marshmallow cream and butter until smooth.
Slowly add in your vanilla and powdered sugar and continue mixing for 1 min on medium speed.
Reserve for later.

When brownies have cooled completely spread frosting evenly on top.

Now make your chocolate glaze.
In small saucepan melt butter, unsweetened chocolate and milk over low heat.
When melted remove from heat and add in your powdered sugar.
Stir until smooth.
Pour this on top of frosting.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes until chocolate top is set.
Cut into squares when ready to serve.

Now, just because I wanted to be cute I made some little marshmallow snowmen to top the brownies.
They are super easy and TOTALLY optional.
You can use them on brownies or as cupcake toppers.
Push 3 mini marshmallows onto a toothpick.
Melt some white chocolate or almond bark.  I always add a nice teaspoon of vegetable shortening to my chocolate before melting because it makes it thinner and easier to dip.
(about a tablespoon for every 4 oz.)
Dip the marshmallows into the white chocolate and immediately top with a chocolate chip "hat".  
Let set.
Once set, I drew on faces with edible markers.
