Rocky Road Brownies

News flash! While celebrating Marshmallow Week, I think I’ve found the perfect brownie recipe. The brownie layer at the base of these Rocky Road Brownies is amazing. It’s a from-scratch-recipe that only used one bowl to come together. That fact alone, would make these brownies great. They’re a dense, rich and fudgy brownie. Baked for 35 minutes, then topped with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and pecans. Back in the oven for 5 minutes more. Just long enough to puff the marshmallows and gently toast the nuts.

Rocky Road BrowniesEveryday Food, June 2008

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for pan
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides; butter paper.

In a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, combine butter and 1 cup chocolate chips. Heat, stirring occasionally, until just melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove mixture from heat, stir in both sugars and salt, then eggs, and finally flour, stirring until just combined. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes.

Remove from oven, immediately sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips, then marshmallows and nuts. Bake until chocolate is shiny and marshmallows are puffed, about 5 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Using paper overhang, lift brownies onto a work surface and cut into 16 pieces.

    They look lovely. I’ve been trying to get some American cup measures (apparently British cub sizes aren’t quite the same size), I’ll have to try harder so I can make these. I love your little white plates as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Patricia. The little white plates came from Pier 1. Not sure if you have them across the pond.

    Hi Mike. I once made these. And they are delicious but such a pain to cut. The marshmallows got all over my knife. How did you cut yours so perfectly ? Any tips?? Thanks.

    1. Haz-
      I had to clean the blade of the knife after each cut. A pain, yes. But totally worth it.
