Rocky Road Brownies
- 1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp espresso powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 cup roasted, salted almonds, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Coat a 9 inch baking pan with nonstick spray
Melt butter and cocoa together in a bowl in the microwave oven at High power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Stir in the sugar, espresso powder and vanilla.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then add the flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until well combined. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes, or just until brownies start to pull away from the sides of the pan.
Sprinkle marshmallows, almonds, and chocolate chips on brownies. Heat broiler to low setting and place rack 8 inches from element. Broil brownies until marshmallows turn golden, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from oven, let cool 20 minutes, then refrigerate brownies.
To cut, loosen brownies from the sides of the pan using a bench knife coated with nonstick spray. Lift the brownies out of the pan and cut with a long, sharp knife.
