For some odd reason, I've been craving brownies lately. For whatever reason, I do not know. I'm not really a big fan of brownies so I don't really understand why I've been craving them so much. Maybe I haven't been getting enough chocolate? Whatever the reason, I knew I wanted to have a good brownie.
I came across a recipe awhile back that was called 'Rocky Road Brownies'. I lost the recipe, so I tried my best to interpret it. I didn't have enough peanuts, so what I did was chopped up some walnuts. I love walnuts. They're my favorite nut. In my opinion, I thought the brownies came out lovely. My mother thought so as well.
She suggested that I use almonds next time. She's a huge almond fan, so I think that was just her. Any nut would have been good with this recipe really. I liked the walnuts. Next time, I think thats all I'll use. I won't use any peanuts.
I wanted to make it look pretty and I had a bunch of Hersheys Kissables in the pantry. My cousin got a basket full for free awhile back and he kindly gave me some. I've never eaten them, and they're colorful, so, I put them on top of the brownies. Made them look pretty and colorful.
