2) Whisk together melted butter and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl.

4) Spread batter (it will be thick) into a greased and floured 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan (or use a deep dish cookie sheet).

5) Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Note: Reduce the temperature by 25 degrees if you are using a dark pan.

6) Remove from oven; top warm cake evenly with marshmallows.

7) Return to oven, and bake 5 minutes.

8) Make Chocolate Frosting: Beat all ingredients together with an electric mixer until smooth.

9) Drizzle Chocolate Frosting over warm cake.

Let the cake cool completely before cutting into squares!
HERE'S A TIP FOR THOSE OF YOU IN A HURRY: You can also use 2 (19.5-ounce) packages of brownie mix instead of making the brownies from scratch.
