They will stare at you, begging you to eat them. Saying no is not an option.
And they are delicious.
They're called rocky road brownies, or as I call them, road kill brownies. I had some belgian baking chocolate from Trader Joe's lying around, so I used it up in the brownies. Which is probably only the second time I've made brownies from scratch; I always used the mixes! (Which don't compare AT ALL to these beauties.
The original brownie recipe was found here, but I altered it a bit and then added the road kill topping.
Road Kill Brownies
6 oz baking chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 + 1/8 cup flour
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. salt
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
-semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly oil an 8 x 8 inch pan. Melt the chocolate and butter over medium-low heat in a double boiler; stir. Remove from heat and beat in the sugar and eggs until smooth. Add the flour, powder, salt. Spread evenly in the pan and bake 20-30 minutes. In a bowl, combine the topping ingredients. When the brownies are done, immediately sprinkle with the toppings and bake 3-5 minutes, or until the marshmallows and puffed up and lightly browned.
I didn't really measure the nuts, chocolate chips, or the toffee bits. I probably used 1/4 cup or a bit more of nuts.
