Rocky Road Brownies

All the rich flavors and textures of rocky road ice cream in a brownie.

Rocky Road brownies are a sweet, rich, indulgent treat perfect for your next party, or school event.

Kids of all ages will love the chocolatey, nutty, marshmallow creamy goodness of these chocolate brownies.

Most people are surprised the first time they make chocolate brownies from scratch - because it's much easier than many people believe.

We have three rocky road chocolate brownie recipes for you to choose from.

The first one has all the goodies stirred right into the batter, the second uses them for a tasty topping and the third is extremely easy because it uses a brownie mix.

Try all three, or choose the brownie recipe that sounds best to you.
