Woman's Prerogative Brownies

These are by far the best homemade brownies I have ever had. I combined a few recipes and recipe ideas to get IMHO the perfect brownie! The name comes from the fact that anyway you crave/want them they are good I posted them w/ the marshmallow filling and chocolate frosting as that is MY prerogative! They are good with mint filling, caramel, just the frosting or just plain! I hope you enjoy these as much as my friends and family!F

  3. Add eggs.
  4. Stir in dry ingredients and add nuts in a bowl.
  5. Pour into greased 9x13-inch pan.

  8. Return to oven and bake just until the marshmallows begin to melt (5 minutes or so).
  9. Remove from oven and cool.
  10. For frosting: to make it thick and creamy do not melt the butter; for a thin frosting, melt the butter, you can then pour the frosting instead of spreading it on top of the brownies and chill till the frosting sets up.

  12. Add milk and vanilla and beat till smooth.

These brownies are delicious!!I didn't even have to frost them or put marshmallows on them.It is such a simple recipe.I used salted butter so I didn't have to add the salt.Such a nice rich flavor and texture.

Made these to bring over to my in-laws - everyone loved them!! Didn't make the icing - added just the marshmallows - they were perfect! Great brownies! Thanks homegirl!

I just used the basic brownie recipe (no marshmellows or frosting) but it was FABULOUS! I sprinkled a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips over the top of the warm brownies and let them cool. YUMMO!
