Rocky Road Brownies

For all the sweet tooths out there, you’re in luck! My sister baked a batch of Rocky Road Brownies a while back, so this post is terribly delayed, but Rocky Road Brownies are the best! It has everything your mouth desires – peanuts, marshmallows, chocolate chips, brownies. It’s a party in your mouth!

She got this recipe off Martha Stewart’s website, and I’ll leave out the ratings this time round, because I can’t remember exactly but my opinion would be definitely a biased one ūüėČ

1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
