Mississippi Mud Brownies

These are one of my hubby's favorites at our house and seem to become a party staple in the summertime.

Fudge Brownie Recipe
absolutely amazing by themselves, with frosting or as Mississippi mud

In Bosch or Mixer
1 pound (4 cubes) butter (not softened)

Slowly add:
4 cups sugar

7 large eggs
4 tsp vanilla
7/8 cups cocoa
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 cups nuts, chopped (optional)

Mix and pour into a well-greased jelly-roll pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

For Mississippi Mud add
10 oz miniature marshmallows for the last three minutes of cooking time. Cool and frost with homemade chocolate frosting.
The recipe says you should let rest for 24 hours--good luck.

4 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder (sifted)
4 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
dash of salt
enough cream, canned milk, or milk to make spreading consistency.
