Rocky Road Brownies

By  | Last Updated:  

Brownies are a favorite dessert idea with just about everyone. Their chewy texture and delicious chocolate richness make them candidates for showing up on dinner tables, birthday party dessert tables and in the hands of anyone who can get one! They can be fancied up on individual plates, drizzled with chocolate, or nestled in a cupcake liner for an easy party display. This Rocky Road version is covered with gooey marshmallows and salty peanuts. They’re rich, but that doesn’t keep little boys from asking for more!

Rocky Road Brownies

  • Author:


  • 1 box/bag of brownie mix. The topping is going to be rich and gooey so I recommend using brownies that have those same qualities.
  • Water, oil and egg as recommended by the brownie mix.
  • 1 – 1.5 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup of chopped nuts (I have used dry-roasted peanuts this time but almonds and walnuts would also be good)


  1. Prepare the brownies according to the package (or make them from scratch). Feel free to add some of the chocolate chips to the mix if it doesn’t already have a filling of some sort.
  2. Combine chocolate chips, nuts and dry marshmallows in a bowl.
  3. When brownies are finished baking, pull them from the oven and IMMEDIATELY dump mix from the bowl onto the top of the still-warm brownies. Spread it out. Allow the brownies to cool completely. As they cool, the chocolate and marshmallows will melt on the top.
  4. Cut and serve!


  • If you don’t have time for the brownies to melt the topping you can just put the pan back in the warm oven. This will melt them but they won’t be as fluffy on the top as they are in the picture. They still taste just as good though!
