Rocky road brownies have a rich chocolate brownie base topped with even more chocolate, chopped nuts, and sweet marshmallows. Get the recipe on Foodal.


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease an 8-inch-square metal baking pan with butter. Line the pan with one piece of parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides for easy removal, and lightly butter the parchment paper. 
  2. Heat about 2 cups of water to a simmer in the bottom of a double boiler or medium-sized saucepan. Cut the butter into small pieces and place in the top of the double boiler, or use a heatproof bowl of an appropriate size set over the saucepan, being careful not to let the bowl touch the water. Add 1 cup chocolate chips. Stir frequently until chocolate and butter are melted and combined.  
  3. Pour chocolate mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt. Mix well to combine. Stir in eggs and flour.  
  4. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.  
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and nuts. Return to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes, or until toppings begin to melt.  
  6. Remove from oven. Let cool completely in the pan, then lift out using edges of parchment paper. Cut into squares and serve.
