Best Rocky Road Brownies

“Years ago, my girlfriend and I combined our favorite brownie recipes. With the addition of miniature marshmallows and chocolate chips, we created a chocoholic’s dream recipe—and it’s so easy to double for company." —Donna Sawatzky, Piedmont, Oklahoma

    Due to comments posted here, we have retested this recipe. We have found the ideal bake time to be 30-35 minutes and the recipe will be updated. Anything less than that, the brownies will not test done. The batter is thick and we found the brownies to be very fudgy and not dry at all.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    This brownie recipe is not very good, but just use your regular brownie recipe and stir in the rocky road--dreamy!

    Just by reading this recipe, it is easy to see that these brownies will be dry. There is obviously an error in the cooking time. A 8x8" pan of brownies cooked at 325 degrees takes only 25-30 minutes. Cooking a 8x4" pan at 350 degrees for 40-45 minues is sure to ruin the brownies!
