  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and lightly flour one 13x9 inch pan.
  2. In large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter and 1 ounce chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat, stir in 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup flour, walnuts, baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 eggs, and mix well. Spread chocolate base evenly into prepared pan.
  3. In a small bowl, combine 6 ounces cream cheese, 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat for one minute with an electric mixer at medium speed, or until smooth and fluffy. Spread cream cheese filling over chocolate mixture.
  4. Bake base and filling at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 35 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare frosting. Melt 1/3 cup butter, 2 ounces chocolate, milk, and 2 ounces cream cheese in large saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat, and add confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat well. Use heat to soften if it begins to dry before you are ready to use it.
  6. Spread marshmallows over the top the chocolate bar in pan. Pour warm frosting over marshmallows. Use kitchen knife to somewhat mix the two. Let cool to room temperature. When cool, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Cut cold into small pieces.

This recipe was really tasty! I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate so I substituted it with cocoa powder instead and it still turned out excellent, I will definitely make it again!

Although the bottom brownie-like layer was really good, I just found it to be too much with the frosting and marshmallows on top.

I brought a whole pan of these to school because i personally thought they were amazing. For one, the marshmellows on top made it look beautiful... i almost cried when it was done (not really, but ... whatever). However, the most common complaints i heard from this were "this is TOO sweet" and "the brownie part isnt chocolatey enough".

My kids really liked this. One usually will not eat nuts in baking, but liked these. The only downside to this recipe is that it is time consuming. For a quicker version of a similar bar, try GOOEY BARS, which I also found on this website.

These are terrific! I make them for church functions and barbeques and come home with an empty dish every time. You will definitely not be disappointed when you make these. They are very sweet, so cut them small.

I made this recipe for a Halloween party and I asked people what they would rate it as and they said 4 stars. The bottom layer of these bars are like a really good brownie but the frosting layer turned out a little grainy and a bit too sweet. The marshmallows are super yum... I think I would make this bar with a different frosting. All in all it was really good.

These are great! I substituted pecans for walnuts. I melted the cream cheese in the microwave before adding it to the pan for the frosting - everything came out nice and smooth! Delicious
