This weekend, my husband and I took a little stay-cation in the middle of nowhere. We went hiking in the forest, drank whiskey, ate bbq and explored the beautiful, little things around us. We got some great fudge at a little candy shop and we slept like the dead after we came home. One of the things we got on the trip was this great walnut fudge that melted in your mouth and tasted like childhood.
I never liked rocky road ice cream when I was growing up (then again, I really don't like chocolate ice cream in general) but I love the combination of chewy marshmallows, chocolate and nuts. This brownie is one beautiful treat, especially when it's just undercooked enough (as brownies should always be). Try it out at your next party. They are very crumbly and sticky. They might not stay together well if you try to cut them while warm, but they are the perfect fudgy brownie.
