2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1(10.5 ounce) pkg. minature marshmallows


1/2 cup butter

1/3 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder

4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9 X 13 inch pan.

2. In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat.  Remove from heat and stir in cocoa until smooth.  Mix in white sugar, eggs,  and vanilla.  Stir in flour, salt,  then fold in pecans and marshmallows.  Spread into prepared pan.

3. Bake for 25- 30 minutes or until the brownies just begin to pull from the sides.  Cool completely.
