Rocky Road Brownies
(Makes about 16 brownies)

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter or margarine
1-1/2 cups (9 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons Wilton Clear Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup coarsely chopped peanuts, divided
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8″ x 2″ or 9″ x 2″ square pan with vegetable spray or Bake Easy! Non-Stick Spray.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter with 1 cup chocolate chips. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture; stir until just combined. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup peanuts. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Bake until toothpick inserted in centre comes out almost clean, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Sprinkle marshmallows over top. Broil until marshmallows are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup peanuts over top; drizzle with melted chocolate.
