Rocky Road Pie


Rocky Road is both my mom’s and my grandpa’s favorite flavor of ice cream. Personally, I’ve never tried this chocolate, nut, marshmallow mix because I’m more of a vanilla ice cream type of girl, but that rich, campfire-like combination does seem pretty mouthwatering to me! And because it was recently pie, or “Pi”, season, it seemed fitting to adapt this classic flavor to a delicious pie. (Check out last year’s Pi Day dessert: a quick and easy Chocolate Pudding Pie!)

S’mores Brownie Bars

S’mores the season! Although s’mores always trigger campfire memories of romantic summers, they also remind me of cold nights in front of the fireplace while clutching a hot chocolate in one hand and a thick blanket in the other.  My grandpa, who could easily supply about 3 warehouse stores from his collection of “tools” in his garage, recently gave me a blow torch to use for baking feats. I contemplated making a baked alaska or lemon merengue pie with my newly acquired toy, but then I thought: S’MORES!!! These s’mores brownies combine a campfire classic with a chocolate lover’s favorite dessert…When the marshmallows are freshly melted and gooey, who can resist this amazing treat?! If you think brownies are good, think again, for these s’mores brownie bars top them all! Enjoy!!

Recipe: S’more Brownies

***NOTE: Instead of using the big marshmallows, you could substitute them for mini marshmallows or even marshmallow fluff. Also, if you don’t have a torch, the recipe instructs you to bake the marshmallows in the oven for the last 10 minutes.
