In the mood for something sinfully delicious? This recipe from my friend Karen is just what you need! These gooey treats are not only impressive in their rich rocky road sweetness, but they're also an impressive sight to behold with all of the different layers, which makes them the perfect treat for bringing to potlucks and parties.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate cut up (I use 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup butter, softened
1- 8 oz. cream cheese softened (divided)
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, cut-up ( use 1/2 cup chocolate chips)
Reserved cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 350°. Grease and flour 9x13 pan. Melt 1/2 cup butter and 1 oz. chocolate over low heat in microwave,
stirring until smooth.Stir in remaining base ingredients and spread in pan.
In small bowl combine 6 oz. cream cheese, butter, sugar, flour, vanilla, and egg. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Stir in nuts.
Spread over chocolate mixture
and sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips.
Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup butter, milk, chocolate and 2 oz. cream cheese and microwave on low heat, stirring until well blended. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; mix until smooth,
Cut into 48 bars. Store in refrigerator. (They're not as messy as you might expect seeing as they contain a layer of melted marshmallows. In fact I'd say they're no messier than any other frosted brownie...and they're tasty enough it would be worth the sticky fingers anyway!)
