Rocky Road Brownies

You know those recipe books that are always sitting up by the cash registers at the grocery store? Some are by Betty Crocker, some by Pillsbury, and so on and so forth. Well, I have a confession to make.... I am obsessed with those things. Every time I see one, if it looks even kinda like something I might like, I get it. Anyway, I found the recipe for the Rocky Road Brownies I made for our 100 Days Til Disney night in one of those recipe books by Hershey's.

What You Need:

1 1/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

What To Do:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan.

2. Stir together marshmallows, chocolate chips, and nuts; set aside. Place butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at medium (50%) 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla, beating with a spoon until well blended. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; blend well. Spread batter in prepared pan.

3. Bake 22 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chip mixture over top. Continue baking 5 minutes or until marshmallows have softened and puffed slightly. Cool completely. With wet knife, cut into squares.

4. ENJOY!!! These are very good and just right when you need a chocolate fix. :) This is definitely a keeper recipe for our family.
