Rocky Road Brownies

Boxed Brownie Mix (I like the Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix... Mmmmmm!)
Mini Marshmallows
Chocolate Chips
Nuts, chopped (Pecans, Almonds, Walnuts, Peanuts... whatever you like best)

Prepare a boxed brownie mix according to the directions on the box. I like to make them in a 8x13 inch pan, but if you like a thicker brownie you can make them in a smaller pan. I recommend lining the pan with parchment paper with some hanging out over the edge and then lightly greasing the bottom of the parchment paper. Pour the brownie mix onto the parchment paper and then bake in the oven as directed on the box for a 8x13 inch pan... probably about 24-26 minutes.When the brownies are done, pull them out of the oven and sprinkle with the mini marshmallows. You can use as much as you want here... I like to make a nice layer of marshmallows across the top, approximately one marshmallow deep. Next sprinkle on the chocolate chips. Once again... you can add as much or as little as you want. Same goes with the nuts.... sprinkle evenly over the top. Put the brownies back into the oven for about 5 minutes. Watch them carefully. The marshmallows will puff up and the chocolate chips will get shiny. You don't want the marshmallows to get toasted, just puffy and soft holding together all of the chocolate and nuts! Yummy! Pull the brownies out of the oven and cool on the counter or in the refrigerator if you want to speed up the process (plus if they are refrigerated, they will cut easier later). Here comes the benefit of the parchment paper... After the brownies have cooled, you grab the edges of the parchment paper and you put it directly onto a cutting board. The pan is clean and won't get scratched if you have the non stick pan that will scratch if you use metal utensils in it... and they are easier to cut. You can get nicely conformed brownies! Now you can watch them disappear!
