Rocky Road Brownies

This has been one heck of a week! Over the long weekend, we decided to re-vamp our bedroom and go with a coastal theme. What a difference a couple gallons of fresh paint and a trip to Home Goods can be! I absolutely love the new look. It’s so bright and cheery!

Over the weekend, I rediscovered my love for Rocky Road ice cream. I don’t know how we ever grew apart but I am not letting that relationship go ever again. Every girl needs her ice cream!

I enjoyed every bit of my weekend ice cream binge, but the rocky road infatuation didn’t stop there! I knew I had to bake something and incorporate the rocky road texture and flavors. I hadn’t made brownies in quite a while and Bunbun has a serious love of chocolate. Then again, what girl doesn’t love chocolate?

I whipped up a batch of brownies, added some chocolate chips to the batter along with some crushed pecans and put them in the oven. I added marshmallows and additional chocolate chips toward the end, baked for a few more minutes and let them cool. I added some more marshmallows, crushed walnuts on top and served each piece with a scoop of ice cream on the side.

The end result: delicious!
