This delicious brownie rocks! It is one of our favorite brownie recipes! It has a delicious graham cracker crust, then it is layered with marshmallows, chocolate chips and walnuts. It just oozes a wonderful, decadent, chocolate s’mores taste that everyone loves.
We have used this recipe almost every year for our annual cookie baking extravaganza. Everyone wants more! I’m sure you will too. I’m almost positive I got the original recipe off the back of a Nestle chocolate chip package back in the late 70s or 80s. It is possible that the recipe came from Hershey’s chocolate chips but I searched their archives and couldn’t find a Rocky Road S’Mores Bar recipe there either. They have some that are close but different ingredients.
These bars are one of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes.
A look at one of the most fabulous brownie/bars you will ever taste!
Here’s another look.
Here’s what I did.
Mix softened butter and brown sugar with mixer. I doubled all the ingredients so I could put them in a 9×13″ pan. Original recipe is for a 9×9″ pan.
Here’s what it looks like.
Stir in graham cracker crumbs and flour.
Spread graham cracker mixture onto bottom of greased 9×13″ baking pan or dish. I usually end up patting this down firmly with my hands so that the crumbs adhere to each other better after baking and don’t crumble apart.
You will need these ingredients.
Spread the marshmallows on top of graham cracker crust. It is imperative that the marshmallows be spread first rather than the nuts or chips or you will have a burned mess!
Next add the chocolate chips over top of the marshmallows, followed by the nuts.
Bake 20-25 minutes at 350. Remove from oven. You don’t want the marshmallows to get too brown. These are very lightly browned and starting to puff out. A few more minutes and they would have been overcooked.
Here’s a close up of the Rocky Road S’Mores Bars just out of the oven. The easiest way to cut the bars is to put them in the freezer for an hour. Not nearly as messy that way.
Ready to enjoy!
Here’s the recipe.
