Rocky Road Brownies


I got sick at the end of last week through the weekend.

For reallllllz.

Like omg I never get sick.

This was the kind of sick that happens when the weather changes, you start sneezing 25 times a day, cough up stuff you never imagined was possible, and take a total of 14 antihistamines in two days that do nothing except knock you out for a goodnights sleep.

I was super bummed.

I had to miss my Tacolandia event on Saturday and declined to go with my best fraannnnd to the Nutcracker Market, which is basically Santa’s Wonderland for adults.

No bueno.

By Sunday I was feeling better and finally decided to look at my Secret Recipe Club assignment.

After living off bland foods for the past 3 days, I wanted something comforting and rich.

Luckily, my secret blogger was Stephanie, the sci-fi loving, moscow mule drinking, loving wife, and cat lover behind the food blog Dessert before Dinner.

Obviously, her blog spoke to me since I am allllllll about dessert.

Enter Stephanie’s Rocky Road Brownies.

It’s like a freaking s’more brownie with gooey chocolate chunks and your choice of walnuts or pecans.


Is this real life?


These things hit the spot.

All I need is a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Of course, I made them paleo.

Thank you Stephanie for this amazing recipe.
