The enduring appeal of rocky road is no surprise. The combination of marshmallow, chocolate and nuts in these brownies is hard to resist.


  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Mini Brownie Bites Bar Dough
  • 1/2 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 8-inch-square baking pan.

PLACE whole brownie bar in prepared pan. Allow to soften for 5 to 10 minutes. Using fingertips, pat dough gently to fill pan.

BAKE for 24 to 26 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky.

SPRINKLE 1/4 cup morsels over hot brownie. Let stand for 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread evenly over brownie. Top with marshmallows, remaining morsels and nuts; press down lightly.

BAKE for an additional 5 minutes or just until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool in pan on wire rack for 20 to 30 minutes. Cut into bars with wet knife. Serve warm.

What a great little treat! I made a bath using brownie mix and added extra chocolate and marshmellows. My family is not nuts fans so I omitted those. I plan on making this many times for family gatherings or just to have something easy on hand to save the sweet cravings that my family and I get all the time!

Perfectly delicious

I had a boxed brownie mix (9x13 size) on hand so I substituted it for the prepared brownies, doubling the choc chips and marshmellows. It turned our perfectly delicous! Not a crumb left! Thanks for the great recipe!

Raves for Rocky Road

As a "very-best-baker" I'm not crazy about recipes not made from "scratch"...as a working woman I love quick and easy recipes! This is a great quickie, really satisfies that craving for sweets...I love walnuts, but my clan wanted the traditional peanuts, so I used cocktail peanuts and they were very very good!
