I’m Melanie and I’m a chocoholic. Not a day goes by that I don’t eat some chocolate. Sometimes I can’t even get to 10am without grabbing a chocolate (I made sure to stock up on Mini Cadbury Eggs). I have a stash of candy and chocolate chips that would last a normal person a whole year, okay, maybe two, but lasts us 6 4 months! While I love eating straight up chocolate, my bigger weakness is for homemade chocolate desserts like German Chocolate Brownies and these AMAZING Rocky Road Brownies.Rocky Road Brownies have a rich chocolate brownie base topped with a layer of puffy marshmallows, sprinkled with chocolate chips and almonds, and drizzled with chocolate frosting.

Not only is the moist, rich, and fudgy chocolate brownie divine but there is more chocolate on top– chocolate chips AND chocolate frosting.

And let’s not ignore that puffy cloud layer of marshmallows. Those little guys are tossed on top of the brownies for the last few minutes of baking just until they start to expand and get soft making them super ooey and gooey. It’s a mess of a dessert to cut up and serve (especially when warm) but usually the most delicious ones are!Rocky Road Brownies have a rich chocolate brownie base topped with a layer of puffy marshmallows, sprinkled with chocolate chips and almonds, and drizzled with chocolate frosting.

    I just made these. Thanks for a really good recipe. The only thing was that I thought the brownies were a little dry but the marshmallow helped to balance that. If I were to do it again I might add an extra egg yolk or something.
