Today is my husband's birthday

We celebrated in my class today both Schaeffer's( yesterday) and Ken's birthday with brownies ( mix)  with this icing on top from a former student. I omitted the marshmellows and nuts. It is just
delicious as plain chocolate frosting!

1/2 cup butter
4 Tbs. Cocoa
1 lb or 4 cups confectioners sugar
1 Tbs vanilla
pinch of salt
6 Tbs. buttermilk
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
1 cup marshmallows (optional) 
In sauce pan mix butter and cocoa but DO NOT BOIL!!! when butter is melted then take from heat and add all but the nuts and marshmallows. pour over WARM brownies. Let cool for 5 minutes then top with nuts and marshmallows!
They are very yummy reheated in the microwave with a scoop of icecream on top!!
