Chewy Brownies With Marshmallows And Almonds

Chewy-Brownies-With-Marshmallows-And-Almonds.jpg
I don't know whether to call this a recipe fail or a brilliant accident.
I've been making brownies a lot lately and I mean a lot. 
We've also had this little problem I write about a lot that I make something turn around and the kids and Colt have devoured about 3/4 of what I've made before I have a picture..
Ugh.. They just don't understand..
So after the last brownies with pecans that were amazing  but eaten in 2.2 seconds I thought I had this brilliant idea to make some Rocky Road Brownies.
We'll the idea was brilliant but the marshmallow melted into the brownies leaving them a little extra chewy.
Not what I planned but deliciousness none the less.
A must make anyway.
In case you're looking for other brownie recipes make sure to try out a few of my favorites: Brown Butter Brookies, Fudgy Black Bean Brownies , Fudge Brownies With Caramel Swirl, and Fudgy Brownies With Peanut Butter Swirl.
The hardest part is deciding which ones to make first.

Pour into a buttered pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.
The middle of the pan will still be slightly loose when brownies are done.
Allow brownies to cool for 2 hours before removing from pan and slicing to serve.
