The enduring appeal of rocky road is no surprise. The combination of marshmallow, chocolate and nuts in these brownies is hard to resist.

This is a very easy recipe, quick to make in no time flat. I just served these at a church lunch and they were gone in no time flat. I enjoy trying new recipes and use Nestle's site often.

    Rocky Road Brownies

    Jennifer Young from Somersworth, NH

    What a great little treat! I made a bath using brownie mix and added extra chocolate and marshmellows. My family is not nuts fans so I omitted those. I plan on making this many times for family gatherings or just to have something easy on hand to save the sweet cravings that my family and I get all the time!

    Perfectly delicious

    Diane McSweeney from Federal Way, WA

    I had a boxed brownie mix (9x13 size) on hand so I substituted it for the prepared brownies, doubling the choc chips and marshmellows. It turned our perfectly delicous! Not a crumb left! Thanks for the great recipe!

    Raves for Rocky Road

    Marie DeAngelis from Sunrise, FL

    As a "very-best-baker" I'm not crazy about recipes not made from "scratch"...as a working woman I love quick and easy recipes! This is a great quickie, really satisfies that craving for sweets...I love walnuts, but my clan wanted the traditional peanuts, so I used cocktail peanuts and they were very very good!

    Award Winner!!

    Michelle Molter from Maryville, TN

    I used this recipe for the office "Death by Chocolate" Valentine's Day contest and won! It is so easy to make and really delicious! I decided not to cut these in squares and put on a plate for serving (a bit too messy). Instead, I made the brownies the night before but zapped the entire pan in the microwave for a couple of minutes and heated them just a bit. I let the office folks serve themselves just spooning out a serving right out of the pan! Everyone raved about them!! Thanks for a quick, easy and attractive dessert!!

    Yum! I used this topping on a batch of brownies from a mix (it was all I had at the time, but I look forward to trying it with Nestle's break and bake brownies too!) and my, oh my, what an elegant way to dress up brownies and make them special! I love the taste and texture of the topping when combined with moist brownies! It was delicious!

    East Rocky Road Brownies

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    I made three full sheet pans of these treats for our church lunch today. I was pleased to see there were none left when I went back for my pans. It always makes me smile to see others enjoy what I bake. I did use brownie mix instead, as I needed a very large amount. I would use this method again.

    Sandwich

    traci bump from HUNTSVILLE, TX

    I actually sandwiched the marshmellow between another layer of the brownies. You got a sweet surprise when you cut into them. Very much appreciated by the men my husband works with. They want them every week now.

    My 3 year old grandaughter and I made these in May when I kept her while Mom and Dad were on vacation. Mackenzie got to put the toppings on. Her favorite was the marshmellows. She ate lunch and dinner with no argument with this as dessert.

    All occasion

    Karen Doyle from LIVINGSTON, TX

    I first made these at Christmas time using the holiday shaped morsels, It went over so good that I bought up several bags of the shaped morsels. I used the red shapes with the chocolate chips at Valentines and I'm using the green shapes for St. Patricks day. The kids love this. I've also used this when i needed a quick dessert ffor church functions and I always bring home an empty dish. If you like chocolate this is for you!!

    Too good to eat just one!

    Judith Vandagriff from ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL

    I made up a batch of these scrumptious brownies for my husband to take into his co-wokers. He of course had to "test" them out beforehand. Well, now there are only a few left and I need to make another batch "to go". These are really yummy and chewy, and there won't be any leftovers! Great for the Holidays.
