Brownie tortoni

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ cup Butter
3 ounces Unsweetened baking chocolate
1½ cup Sugar
3 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1⅛ cup All-purpose flour
3 cups Miniature marshmallows
¼ cup Milk
3 drops Peppermint extract
3 drops Green food coloring
1 cup Heavy cream; whipped

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Place in microwave for 1 minute on high. Remove and stir thoroughly. If chocolate is not melted, return to microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until chocolate is melted. This should not take more than 2 minutes.

Stir in sugar and mix completely. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir until just mixed - don't overbeat. Stir in flour.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes,or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.

Place marshmallows and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir. If necessary to melt marshmallows, return to microwave for another 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on the wattage of your microwave). Stir until smooth.

Add peppermint extract and green food coloring to marshmallows (use more or less coloring to suit your own taste), and stir to distribute evenly. Chill until slightly thickened.

Fold in whipped cream, then pour entire mixture over the brownies. Freeze.

Remove Brownie Tortoni from freezer, and place in refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.

Garnish with curls of chocolate.
