Rocky Road Brownies

What Are Rocky Road Brownies?

Rocky road brownies are made with an easy one-bowl brownie recipe, a layer of gooey marshmallows, and smooth chocolate frosting! They're a rich, dream-like dessert.

Prepare the Batter

To start, in a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter, sugar, and cocoa powder. Add the eggs one at a time, blending after each one. 

Add Walnuts

Next, reduce the mixer speed to low, and stir in the flour, salt, and vanilla. Then, use a spatula to mix in the walnuts.

Bake the Brownies

Pour the brownie batter into your prepared pan, and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Add the Marshmallows

Sprinkle the mini marshmallows on top of the brownies and place the pan back in the oven for 4 minutes.

Make the Frosting

While the brownies are cooling, start on the frosting. Blend together butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, milk,  and vanilla in a large bowl.

Frost the Brownies

When the brownies have cooled, go ahead and spread the frosting over the layer of marshmallows.

Serve and Enjoy

Let the brownies chill in the fridge for a few hours so that they can set before you cut into them. (It's the hardest part, I know!) Then, slice them into squares and enjoy!
