In my previous video, I made you Healthy Pumpkin Bread. Today, I bring you quite the opposite with Rocky Road Brownies. When it comes to food gift giving during the holidays, so many people give breads and cookies but something we like to give, are brownies served in a dish.
I like to find pretty bowls or plates, place brownies in them, and wrap them up as a gift. The receiver can use the dish over and over again instead of it getting thrown away, and the family can enjoy the brownies. Brownie pan was bought at my local Walmart.
HOW TO MAKE ROCKY ROAD BROWNIES
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) Great Value unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 1 bag (12 ounces) Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon McCormick’s Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
- 1 cup Jet -Puffed Mini Marshmallows
- 1/2 cup chopped Fisher pecans or your choice of nut.
- Reddi-wip for topping (optional)
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8-inch-square baking pan or use a brownie pan like I did.
Step 2. In a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of boiling water, combine butter and 1 cup chocolate chips. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Or you can use the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Just watch carefully.
Step 3. Remove mixture from heat; stir in sugars and salt, then eggs, and finally flour, stirring just until combined. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes.
Step 4. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips, then marshmallows and nuts. Bake until chocolate is shiny and marshmallows are puffed, about 5 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Cut into 16 squares and top with Reddi-wip!!! **DROOL*
