Fully Loaded Marshmallow Brownies

Oh my goodness!

I can't recall when I found this recipe, but it's beyond words!  Rich, chewy brownies and yummy gooey marshmallows.  Throw in a little caramel ice cream topping and can that be wrong? 

Then, drizzle a warm buttery, chocolate frosting over it and it's the most "over the top" brownies I've ever had.
I worked as a hostess for a local restaurant and loved to bring in goodies for the staff and management.  I took these in one day, and the whole staff raved about them, as they finished them off within minutes.  It's so nice to be appreciated...haha!

You may want to use a fork to eat these, or just lick your fingers when you're finished with one...uh, never mind, you'll be going back for seconds anyway! 


2 (18oz. boxes brownie mix (use your favorite)
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 10 oz. package mini marshmallows (If you like more, go for it!) 
1 cup peanuts, dry roasted are fine (salted or unsalted)



1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla 

Preheat oven to 350'F.   Grease or spray a jelly roll pan.
Mix ingredients as directed on the back of the box.  Pour into prepared pan.  Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove and immediately drizzle caramel over the top of the brownies.  Top with peanuts and marshmallows.   
Return bars to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes or until marshmallows begin to brown.   Remove and immediately drizzle with chocolate frosting.
For the frosting:
While brownies are baking, melt butter, cocoa and milk. 
Remove from heat when melted.  Add confectioner's sugar and vanilla, beating with a hand mixer until smooth.
