Today I thought that I would share a terrific Brownie recipe with you.



2 cups cocoa
1/3 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup shortening
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 tablespoon water
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix first 4 ingredients together. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes in 9x13 pan. When brownies are baked put marshmallows on top, put back in oven to melt. Spread marshmallows. Frost with chocolate frosting. Don't let marshmallows stay in long, you don't want them brown just so you can spread them.
