Toasted marshmallows with a medly of chopped nuts and chocolate chips on top of a rich fudge brownie… Rocky Road Brownies! Now I’m wondering why Rocky Road Ice Cream never appealed to me! These are easy and fun to make especially when you have a fun kitchen companion.
well hello there pnut.
“They were joking when they said chocolate’s not good for dogs Mom!! Drop something, I double dog dare you!”
oh but how can you resist this face after he dug an impressive hole in the backyard? hmm or was it two guilty parties? or maybe he said to his cousin- hey you, I can’t mess up my slippers, plus your feet are bigger than mine.
Rocky Road Brownies
Courtsey of EatingWell.com.
1 cup less 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 regular-sized marshmallows
2/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Spray a 8×8 inch baking pan with baking spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Melt butter in the microwave or on the stove top. Stir in cocoa powder until combined, and then the sugar. You should end up with a dryish mixture when mixed since the sugar out weighs the liquid. Transfer to a larger bowl and beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Once batter is shiny and smooth add the dry ingredients mixing until just incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan and top with marshmallows that have been cut into quarters. Sprinkle chopped nuts and chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted just into the brownie comes out clean (you will have to avoid the chocolate chips to get a good measure). Marshmallows will be golden brown and toasty!
