Rocky Road Fudge Brownies

Rocky Road Brownies from Diethood

This started off as a typical morning; feed baby, start coffee, turn on laptop, open up blog, and boom! Not so typical anymore. My laptop is about to go to “sleep” and it won’t wake-up until I can find/buy another charging adapter. Guess what? Best Buy doesn’t carry the adapter… I have to order it from Sony and wait for it to arrive sometime this week.
Should I tell you what happened to the adapter? My three-year old broke it. She kicked my laptop off the couch, and the thingamajigger that sits at the end of the charging adapter and attaches to the computer broke off. It was an accident, of course.

My fault for leaving my laptop there, unattended.

Now it’s either, steal my husband’s laptop or use the touchpad. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to do actual work on the touchpad. I just use that to browse food blogs and Pinterest while trying to put the baby to sleep at night. Priorities.

But, we’re here to talk about Brownies, and not my technical difficulties.

Do you know how good these brownies were? You can imagine; there’s chocolate, there’s walnuts, marshmallows, butterscotch chips… The best thing is the texture. These brownies are gooey, chewy, crunchy,  fudgy…oh how I wish I had a pan of them right about now.

Then there’s the better part – I made them with a Brownie mix! Chaching!

A couple of friends were coming over, I felt pressed for time, so I went to the local grocer to pick up some fruit and then a light bulb went off – Baking aisle here I come! Once I stepped in there, the Pillsbury box just took me in, it was like a magnetic attraction, and I had to have that box.

The only thing left to do was come up with a topping because I don’t like bare brownies. It can be powdered sugar on top, as long as they are not bare. And walnuts in a brownie are almost always a must for me. Thus a quick scan of my pantry led me to the walnuts, then to the marshmallows, and finally the idea of rocky road started to come together.

Just to note, you can use as much or as little marshmallows as you want, and make sure that your topping is ready to be added to the brownies once the brownies have been in the oven for 25 minutes.

  1. Do you think these would taste as wonderful if I used sugar free/fat free Pillsbury fudge brownie mix? Not sure what you add to it since I’ve never purchased these before but thought maybe it would bring the points down??? What do you think??
