Rock Em Sock Em Brownies


So the name is dorky I know, but these brownies Rock!!!

I was in a baking mood and pulled out my trusty box of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, and then added mini-marshmallows, semi sweet chocolate chips and chopped Marcona Almonds on top. I think the almonds are what really send these brownies over the edge!

As you may or may not know I only use boxed cake and brownie mixes, in my mind and on my palate if you add additional ingredients they taste like home made. The marshmallows were perfectly toasted and it was yummy!

1 box of Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
mini marshmallows
semi sweet chocolate chips
coconut
1/2 cup of chopped Marcona Almonds (or any type of nut will do)

Prepare your brownie mix according to box directions

Pour into a greased casserole dish

Add a layer of chocolate chips, a layer of nuts, layer of coconut, and top with the mini marshmallows

Bake according to package directions, mine took quite a bit longer than the package suggested!

Oh Cheryl, these sound absolutely fantastic. Love what you did to them. Like the circle shape too. I also enjoy using cake and brownie box mixes,with add ins. They make the best desserts.

Easy to make. Great to look at. I bet, yummy to eat. I think it would bring a lot of guilt to all dieters. It is worth it, though.

No kidding, these brownies rock! Plus, this is a terrific photo, too. The ingredients you supplemented plus that round shape really sets these apart. I need to look up what Marcona Almonds are. What is that sauce you've dribbled over the top? YUM! Double YUM!

I don't care what others say, life is all about the ease of using boxed items when needed. This looks really good and very similar to your kitchen sink brownies...

Who cares whether you use a box mix? Not me, that's for sure - these look fab, Cheryl.
