Road Kill Brownies

Don't make these.
They're horrible.
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
2 eggs
1/2 + 1/8 cup flour
1/2 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. salt

3/4 cup mini marshmallows
-chopped walnuts
-pecan halves
-semi-sweet chocolate chips
-toffee bits

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.
