Rocky Road Brownies: Requested Over and Over Again

I take Rocky Road Brownies to every teacher luncheon or dinner thrown at my kid's elementary and middle schools.  I once made something different, and people asked where the brownies were.  The trick is to not overcook the brownies and let the marshmallows and chocolate chips cool before you cut it.  Otherwise, you get a YUMMY, ooey gooey mess.  

If you don't mind the ooey gooey mess, let them cool for 5-10 minutes to prevent your mouth from getting burned before serve immediately.  Warm from the oven or at room temperature, these brownies are heavenly!  

These brownies are so easy to make that I always hesitate to divulge the recipe.  Toss the flour on your face and just pretend that you spent all day in the kitchen!  Enjoy!
