Indulgent rich brownies topped with toasted marshmallows, roasted almonds, and chocolate chips. I love brownies. who doesn’t right? Especially right out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream and a glass of milk! Mmmmm…perfect! I was thinking about what I was going to make to bring into my coworkers after the crazy busy week we have had. The first 9 weeks of school are coming to an end, report cards are being entered, midterm exams are being taken, and I am so ready for fall break! 😉 So I thought what better way to indulge then with these wonderful rocky road brownies. These brownies are so easy to make and taste incredible. They are perfect to bring to a cookout, family reunion, or holiday party.
