Rocky Road Bars

Once again I used another recipe from my Joy of Cookie: All About Cookies cookbook and was not disappointed. These bars were delicious but kinda of turned out more like a chewy brownie rather than a rocky road bar. The three types of chocolate and the marshmallows mixed in make these bars very chocolaty, chewy, and sticky (which is never a bad thing). I kind of wish the marshmallows on top didn't melt down as much for appearance purposes but they still tasted great. I've posted the recipe below which originally has nuts but I made mine without just for allergy reasons at work.

Rocky Road Bars

4 Ounces unsweetened chocolate
8 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 Cups sugar
4 Large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/8 tsp salt
1 Cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
1 Cup mini marshmallows
1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 350F and line and grease a 13*9in pan
2) In microwave melt unsweetened chocolate, stirring occasionally
3) Set chocolate aside to cool to room temp, meanwhile beat butter and sugar until smooth
4) Beat in eggs and vanilla to butter mixture
5) Fold in cooled chocolate mixture into butter mixture with a wooden spoon
6) Sift in flour, cocoa, and salt and stir in with wooden spoon
7) In separate bowl mix together nuts, marshmallows, and chocolate chips
8) Stir in all but 1 cup of marshmallow mixture into butter mixture until well combined
9) Pour batter into prepared pan and pour remaining marshmallow mixture evenly on top
10) Bake for 30min or until top is lightly firm when tapped and toothpick inserted in center comes out slightly wet
11) Let cool completely in pan on wire rack then enjoy!
