Texas Brownies

The name would imply that they are like brownies in texture but I find them to be more like cake, either way the kids gobble them up! I use this recipe often for when I need a simple snack to serve to guests at my Stampin' Up classes or just when I need a quick dessert.

Texas Brownies

1 cup hot water
1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla

Pour the milk into a cup and add the vinegar, set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Bring margarine and water to a boil in a saucepan and pour over dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Bake at 350F in a large greased cookie sheet for about 25 minutes.

1/2 cup margarine
6 tbsp milk
1 cup marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups icing sugar, sifted
2 tbsp cocoa, sifted

Plpace margarine, milk and marshmallows in saucepan over medium heat and stir until all is blended. Add cocoa. Remove from heat; add vanilla and icing sugar. Mix well and spread on cooled cake. Sprinkle chopped pecan nuts or almonds on top if desired.
