1/4 tsp salt
4 ounces butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup powdered sugar, sifted (8 ounces)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch spring form pan set aside.
2
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Beat together the butter, eggs and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Stir in the toasted nuts. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake on a middle shelf of the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle the marshmallows on top and return to the oven for a few minutes to melt the marshmallows. Remove from the oven and carefully spread the chocolate frosting over top.

To make the chocolate frosting mix all ingredients together in a bowl, beating with an electric whisk until smooth and thick. Spread on the hot marshmallows. Let cool completely. Cut into wedges to serve.

I did not see a response from someone who just used a regular pan...what is the outcome if you just use a regular pan? Anyone know?

@AnnieDrews, thanks! The milk used in this recipe is called "coffeemilk" here (already found that out), so now I know what to use. Will see if I can make it this week, it sure looks delicious!

@Mireille Haex, Evaporated milk in the U.S. is basically concentrated milk and is not sweetened. We have a product here called sweetened condensed milk and it is a completely different product, so don't use that. You might check with cooks in your area to see what might be comparable to buy there.

Here is a few lines from my comment on this recipe from last year. I used half-and-half.

"I subbed heavy cream for the evaporated milk because it was all I had in the house. When I went to spread the frosting, it blended in with the marshmallows. I just tried to make it a pretty swirl and after it cooled, it was fine. I used a dark, non-stick springform pan I bought just for this recipe. I will bake for a little less time if I use that pan again as the edges were a little overdone. Thanks for sharing!"

The evaporated milk, is that sweetened or "normal"? As I don't live in the States, I have to figure out what I should use :)

When do you remove the spring form pan? Before the marshmallow? After the marshmallow? Or after the chocolate frosting?
