Rocky Road Brownies


For the past few months I've been craving Rocky Road Brownies-- but I wasn't willing to settle for anything average. I had a picture in my mind and I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less. I was browsing through a new recipe blog I found and I stopped dead in my tracks. There was the most delicious picture of the EXACT brownies I had been imagining. I knew I had to make them. They were absolutely everything I had been dreaming of. Chocolate, Marshmallows and Brownies all rolled into one delicious dessert. I made a huge pan, ate one square and sent them with my Hubby to work. There was no way I trusted myself around these. They are amazing. I think I may have a new favorite.

Rocky Road Brownies

Layer 1:
Brownie Mix

Layer 2:
6 oz. cream cheese- softened
1/4 cup butter- softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. flour
1 cup chocolate chips

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Spread in a greased 9x13 pan. Mix second layer ingredients together (except chocolate chips) until smooth. Spread 2nd layer over base and sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

When done sprinkle 2 cups mini marshmallows over hot brownies. Put back in hot oven for 2 minutes or until fluffy.

Frosting:
1/2 cup margarine
4 tsp. cocoa powder
2 oz. softened cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup milk
Walnuts *optional

Melt margarine and cocoa in a saucepan. Remove from heat- pour into a mixing bowl. Add cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix well. Add vanilla and milk. Mix until smooth. Pour over hot marshmallows and spread (this will look messy-- the marshmallows kind of swirl in with the icing). Chill (in fridge) for at least 2 hours before serving.
