1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans, divided
3 cups miniature marshmallows

Preparation

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add butter and eggs, stirring until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Pour mixture into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch baking pan.

Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle marshmallows over top; return to oven, and bake 1 minute. Remove from oven, and spread marshmallows evenly on top. Let stand 5 minutes.

Spread Chocolate Frosting evenly over marshmallows, and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans. Cool completely, and cut into squares.

Note: If marshmallows do not spread easily after 1 min. in oven, do not bake longer. Let stand 1 to 2 min. to soften.
