Rocky Road Brownies

These are a family favorite. My grandma still has a pan of these sitting around almost every time I visit. As a child, I remember drooling over these and even getting in trouble for standing in front of the TV during an intense football game and screaming "I WANT A BROWNIE!" Um...yeah. Probably contributed to my tight pants syndrome.


1 c margarine or butter
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c cocoa
1 1/2 c flour
1 c chopped nuts (optional!)
2 c sugar
pinch of salt
Miniature marshmallows (1-2 cups)


1/4 c melted butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 c cocoa
1 tsp vanilla,
dash of salt
dash of milk to thin to correct consistency


Preheat oven to 350

In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa, and sugar until melted and well combined. In a mixing bowl, add the melted chocolate mixture and then beat in 1 egg at a time. Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the marshmallows and mix well. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 25 minutes. These can also be made in a large cookie sheet for sheet style brownies that are a little thinner.

Remove from oven and cover evenly with the miniature marshmallows. Put back in the oven and bake 5 more minutes. Cool and then ice! Try to avoid eating the whole pan in one sitting.
