This is an old Hershey's recipe. Yummy treats I have loved for years.

2/3 cup cocoa
4 tbsp shortening
1 cup butter
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

2/3 cup cocoa
4 tbsp shortening
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
3 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
4 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with parchment paper or foil leaving some extended on both ends (to lift brownies from pan later). Grease the  paper/foil.

In a large saucepan, combine the cocoa, shortening, and butter; heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Remove mixture from the heat. Beat in the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt until well blended. Stir in the flour, mixing well. Fold in the walnuts.

Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes (do not over bake). Remove from oven and cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

To make the frosting:
In a medium saucepan, combine the first 3 frosting ingredients. Heat over low heat until shortening and butter are melted and mixture is smooth.

Remove mixture from the heat and beat in the eggs, vanilla, and sugar until smooth; stir in the marshmallows.
Pour the warm frosting over the cooled brownies. Refrigerate for a few hours before cutting.
