Rocky Road Brownie Bites

These are so good.  I make homemade brownies with this recipe, but you can buy the box type.   I just personally think that homemade are moister and gooier and tastier.  :-)

(makes 48)

Brownie Ingredients:
*1/2 cup vegetable oil
*1/2 cup butter, melted
*1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
*2 cups white sugar
*4 eggs
*1 cup all-purpose flour
*2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
*1/2 teaspoon baking powder
*1/2 teaspoon salt

Rocky Road Ingredients:
*4 cups mini marshmallows
*4 tablespoons butter
*1 1/2 cups peanuts, chopped
*1 cup chocolate chips
*Merkins chocolate or milk chocolate chips

Brownie Bites Directions:
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~Spray a 9x13 inch pan with a cooking spray.
~MIx instant coffee into melted butter, until coffee is dissolved.
~In a large bowl, mix together oil, butter mixture, sugar & vanilla.
~Beat in eggs one at a time.
~Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder & salt.
~Slowly stir into the egg mixture until just blended.
~Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
~Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 way full.
~Bake for 12-14 minutes.
~Remove from oven.
~Let sit for about 5 minutes, and then gently remove from muffin pan.
~Cool completely.

Rocky Road Directions:
~In a large bowl, microwave the marshmallows and buyer until puffy, about 2 minutes.
~Quickly stir in chopped peanuts.
~Fold in chocolate chips.
~Working quickly, use a spoon or your fingers (I find this easier), and scoop about a tablespoon of rocky road mixture on the top of each brownie.
~Place brownies on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
~Melt merkins chocolate or milk chocolate chips over a double boiler over low heat.
~Once chocolate is melted, dip each brownie into the chocolate covering the rocky road mixture.
~Let sit in refrigerate for 20-30 minutes until the chocolate hardens up.

If you more brownies than rocky road like I did, just dip them in the melted chocolate or leave plain.
