Rocky Road Brownies

Wednesday, May 5, 2021
Are you are fan of Rocky Road Ice Cream? Then you're going to love these dark fudge chocolate brownies topped with toasted marshmallow, chocolate chips and of course nuts are always optional for those not fond of them.



That's the beauty of making your recipe from scratch it will exactly what ingredients your family loves.



Our family wasn't a fan of nuts, so to solve that problem I did half the pan with crushed macadamia and pistachio for me and the rest plain.



If you haven't tried making these easy homemade style bars this is the ultimate brownie everyone loves and loves the chewy homemade decadent brownies.



We are all big brownie fans you may have had our Oreo Stuffed Brownies or our Peanut Butter Ritz Crack Stuffed Brownies both are scrumptious along with these to add to your list of must makes.

Seriously Easy Homemade Brownies




Ok I get it, you're in a hurry, right?


I have that solution, use a boxed brand you prefer, just make the topping, and if you really want to fool them add a little drizzle of melted chocolate with a fork to look dazzling professional!


This recipe is super simple and has just a few steps, so don't be intimated about baking these at all I promise it's sooooo easy!


Rocky Road ice cream was always a favorite flavor, so why not in a brownie they're a perfect summer outdoor picnic dessert also.

Adapt Away



You can add any chopped candy bars, any kind of nuts, or even chopped maraschino cherries.


One combination we also love is milk chocolate chips and coconut.


But, whatever you add with a marshmallow combination is going to be spectacular in flavor.


Basic recipes are just that, a guideline to your creativity!
