Rocky Road Brownies

What’s your favourite brownie combination?!

Brownies always go down well regardless of the crowd you are feeding. They travel well and are the perfect gift to bring if you are visiting family and friends over the festive period. Who is going to be disappointed at the sight of a batch of freshly baked brownies? They don’t take long to make and the method is very simple but the end result is decadent and delicious. 

For this batch of brownies I decided to change things up and incorporate some of my childhood favourites. Our local bakery sold Rocky Roads growing up and I have always loved them. Turning them into a brownie has only improved them in my eyes. I decided not to top these with anything as they are so good as they are but you could melt chocolate and add any left over cherries or marshmallows that you may have. 

It’s set to be another wet and windy weekend so why not stay in and get baking? Let me know if you try them and I would love to see photos! 

🛒 Ingredients 🛒 

▪️200g butter

▪️200g dark chocolate

▪️275g golden caster sugar

▪️3 large eggs

▪️85g plain flour

▪️50g cocoa powder

▪️180g dark chocolate chips

▪️75g mini marshmallows

▪️100g glacé cherries, halved

▪️100g digestive biscuits, broken up

👩‍🍳 Method 👨‍🍳 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Prepare your 9x9inch tray, if it does not have a non stick coating, remember to line with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt together the chocolate and the butter over a medium heat. 
  3. Once melted, stir through the sugar until there are no lumps. It will still be grainy but as you add the eggs it will go smooth and glossy. 
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time, make sure they are combined fully before you move onto the next one. 
  5. Next, fold in the flour and the cocoa powder, make sure it is fully folded through so no lumps of flour remain.
  6. Stir through the marshmallows, glacé cherries and digestive biscuits.
  7. Add to your prepared baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes. You want the edges to be firm but the middle to be slightly fudgey. 
  8. Leave to cool before cutting and serving. If you prefer brownies warm, go ahead! If you want them to cut neatly wait until they have cooled completely before cutting!
