Every year we go to Bingo night at my nephew's school, and every year I volunteer to make a treat for the bake sale that goes on that same evening. My sister-in-law helps run the event, so I figure it's the least I can do to help out.
I decided to go with brownies this year, but I wanted to make them with a twist. They needed to be something that would grab people's attention and make them buy some! I opted for Rocky Road Brownies because....well, why not? I had to make these sans nuts because of the restrictions at the school, but I bet they would make these even better. The brownie is fudgy with nestles of chocolate chips and marshmallow hidden throughout. Enjoy!
- 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts, divided (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13" baking pan and set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and butter. Stir in sugar; cool slightly. Whisk in eggs. Stir in flour and salt. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 2 cups marshmallows and 1 cup walnuts.
Pour into baking pan. Bake 30 minutes.
Sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup marshmallows and 1/2 cup walnuts. Press them down lightly. Return to oven for 2 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed.
Cool completely; refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars and serve.
