Rocky Road Brownies

Rocky Road BrowniesThese super rich and gooey brownies were the temptation of the weekend here in my home!

The decadent chocolate brownies covered with melted marshmallows and  honey roasted peanuts just screamed “Eat me!” as I passed them.

They were a big hit at the potluck they attended Friday night as well!
