Rocky Road Brownies

So not ready for school to start up again.


I’ll miss sleeping until the late afternoon and having time to do… absolutely nothing. Laziness at its finest.


Meanwhile, I’ll cope with the misery of school starting by eating brownies. Really, really good brownies.


When I was little I went through a phase were I was OBSESSED with rocky road ice cream. There was always a carton in my house. Why’d I grow out of that phase? I’ll never know.


Toasted marshmallows and walnuts on top of the richest and fudge-y-ist brownie. These are one of those desserts that are so deep, chocolate-y and rich that it kinda hurts your teeth. It’s soooo worth it but just make sure you have a drink on hand.


These brownies make everything better.


Rocky Road Brownies:
Brownies adapted from King Arthur Flour
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups unsweetened dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated coffee
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×13 glass baking dish and set aside. Crack 4 eggs into a large bowl, and beat them with the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla until smooth. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan combine the butter and sugar, and heat, stirring, until the butter is melted. Continue to heat (or microwave) briefly, just until the mixture is hot, but not bubbling; it’ll become shiny looking as you stir it. Add the hot butter/sugar mixture to the egg/cocoa mixture, stirring quickly until smooth. Add the flour and chips, again stirring until smooth. Spoon the batter into the greased baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes until a cake tester, or toothpick, is inserted into the center comes out clean, or with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it. The brownies should feel set on the edges, and the center should look very moist, but not uncooked. Remove the brownies from the oven and set the oven to broil on high. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the brownies and spread them over the brownies creating a “glue” for the other toppings. Then evenly sprinkle the walnuts and marshmallows over the melted chocolate. Broil for 2-4 minutes until the tops of the marshmallows look toasted. Keep an eye on them because the marshmallows will burn in a second. Remove them from the oven and cool completely cutting and serving. Enjoy!
