There was some finger licking involved in the making of today's cookie (can't let any gooey chocolate go to waste...)! I wasn't real impressed with the brownie portion, but I liked the rocky road topping. If I was to make it again, I would probably make my Old-Fashioned Brownies (Cookie Recipe #82) and finish them off with the rocky road topping. This brownie had more of a milk chocolate taste rather than the darker chocolate flavor of the Old-Fashioned Brownies.
Ingredients: 4 squares unsweetened chocolate, 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks)butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional), 2 cups miniature marshmallows, 1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup chopped walnuts (for topping).
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch pan. Microwave chocolate and butter in microwavable bowl for 2 minutes, stirring after one minute, until butter is melted. Stir sugar into melted chocolate. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until well blended. Stir in flour and nuts and thoroughly combine. Spread in prepared pan and pop into preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle marshmallows, chocolate chips and nuts over brownies; return to oven to continue baking for 3-5 minutes. Topping will begin to melt together. Remove and allow to cool in pan before cutting into bars.
Makes 24 brownies.
