Rocky Road Brownies

I originally made these back in January – which you can read about here – but they are too good not to post here as well.

These come from Tyler Florence, and although they call for nuts (hence the “Rocky Road”), I left them out and used more chocolate chips.

I also omitted the caramel sauce – because the kids aren’t really fans of it.

Oh – one more thing – I always mix the marshmallows through the batter, because I find that if they are all on the top, the brownies become too difficult to cut.

Rocky Road Brownies – adapted from Tyler Florence

6 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray and set aside.

In a glass mixing bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the butter is just melted. Mix it up to melt the chocolate completely. Stir the sugar into the melted chocolate until dissolved. Mix in the vanilla and eggs. Stir in the flour and salt just until combined, then stir in the marshmallows. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

  1. I have a brownie recipe similar to the way you made these that I made a lot before we became empty nesters. They are a favorite of my kids. Mine has more sugar, more eggs, and oddly less chocolate. (No nuts or caramel.) It would be fun to make these side by side and compare. I love your brownie project!!!
