PC's Microwave Rocky Road Brownie Dessert

Fran Miller


I had this deliciously decadent dessert last night at a product party, eating it WARM! It was one of the best chocolate desserts I have ever tasted, so I wanted to add the recipe to my JAP account so I can find it again. (Please understand that I am NOT trying to take credit for this recipe! The consultant did it a little differently than the official recipe so I'm posting it her way so I can remember.)

Gather your family around a warm dish of this dessert & make some delicious memories. Or just gather some of the "girls" together & hand out spoons. Ice cream is optional. =^..^=

How to Make PC's Microwave Rocky Road Brownie Dessert


  1. Cut butter into pieces in a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl. Add the chopped unsweetened chocolate. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 1-2 minutes, or until mostly melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
  2. While the chocolate & butter are melting, in a smaller bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Coarsely chop 1/2 cup of the walnuts & set aside.
  4. When the chocolate & butter are melted, remove from microwave and whisk in the sugar and eggs unti smooth. Fold in the flour mixture, then the chopped walnuts.
  5. Pour batter into a 12 x 9 (or 12 cup square) microwave-safe baker. Microwave, UNCOVERED, on HIGH 5-7 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from microwave.
  6. While the brownie is getting done, snip marshmallows in half & unwrap chocolate kisses, if you haven't already done so.
  7. Top hot brownie with marshmallow halves, chocolate kisses, and the remaining 1/2 cup of walnut halves. (You can chop them or leave them large.) COVER the dish & microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes, or until the marshmallows start to soften.
  8. Remove from microwave and let stand, COVERED, for 5 minutes.
  9. Spoon onto plates & serve with a scoop of ice cream, if desired. Or hand everyone a spoon & gather around the table! =^..^=
  10. OVEN DIRECTIONS (to use, if your baker won't fit into your microwave): Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake brownie, UNCOVERED, for 42-46 minutes, or until toothpick into the center comes out clean. Top with marshmallows, chocolate kisses, and walnuts. COVER and bake an additional 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows start to soften. Remove from oven & let stand, COVERED, for 5 minutes.
