Rocky Road Brownie Bars

 Imagine a fudgy brownie that, in any case, would be deliciously chocolaty and fudgy all by itself. Then sprinkle over some milk chocolate, nuts and mini-marshmallows. It doesn't get any more indulgent than this. I urge you to try this recipe from Laura Vitale, in which gooey, luscious brownie meets melted chocolate and marshmallowy goodness. 
Just look at all that yummyness!

Dulce de Leche Snickers Brownies

This recipe is from The Pastry Chef's Baking and let me tell you now, you should be putting your apron this very minute - the sooner you start the sooner you will be able to eat the entire tray of enjoy these amazing brownies. The brownie batter is dark, rich and gooey, and it's common knowledge I can't resist a gooey brownie. If that's not mouthwatering enough, sweet caramel runs all the way through the middle, which balances perfectly with the dark chocolate. But wait - there's more! Chopped snickers bars are sprinkled over the top. This combination means you are looking at a top 5 candidate in my list of favourite ever brownie recipes.

Rolo Chocolate Chip Cookies

 When browsing the awesome My Baking Addiction I came across a recipe that I could not ignore: Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I know it's the third stuffed cookie recipe this month, and the second involving Rolos, but seriously, Rolos and Chocolate Chip Cookies? Can you blame me? The cookie dough is divine; you'll want to eat it straight from the bowl - not that I know from experience or anything... Even if you don't have rolos, they would be awesome on their on their own - but the rolos provide a chewy chocolaty caramel-y centre. That's right. Now go forth and make these cookies!

S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Ever since making the Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies last week, I've been obsessed with stuffed cookies, being amazed at the endless possibilities of what you can put in a cookie. Browsing one of my favourite baking blogs, Brown Eyed Baker, I came across this recipe in which you stuff the cookies with s'mores! Marshmallows and chocolate are sandwiched between two bits of digestive biscuit and baked in a delicious cookie dough. The result? A cookie filled with the amazing gooeyness of melted marshmallows and chocolate that oozes from every bite.

Double Chocolate Cookies

Have you ever had a cookie with the texture of a fudgy brownie inside, but with the slightly crispy edges of a classic cookie? And did this cookie happen to include milk chocolate chips to provide pockets of extra chocolaty awesomeness? If not, then today is your lucky day. But either way, I highly recommend these cookies for not just their taste, but texture too. Taken from the book "C'est fort un chocolat", which I bought in Paris, it has become a valued and regularly used recipe in my ever-expanding collection. 
And they're great with milk.

Rolo Fudge

 I love rolos. And it goes without saying that I love fudge, which is why I thought I'd try this Rolo Turtle Fudge recipe from Shugary Sweets. It turned out to be a smooth, chocolaty fudge with the perfect texture and the occasional bite of chewy caramel from the rolos. I made a few changes to the recipe, like omitting the walnuts, and I ran out of milk chocolate so had to use a combination of milk and dark. Next time I'll be more prepared and use all milk, as although the fudge was rich and delicious, I can't help but wonder how much more so it would have been without the dark chocolate. Living in the UK, where marshmallow fluff isn't available, I bought it from Amazon

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Picture this: An oreo, smothered in chocolate chip cookie dough, then baked. Genius, right?
The combination works really well - a chewy chocolate chip cookie with pockets of yummy chocolate, with the contrasting textures of the oreo and the gooey bit inside! What's not to like? This recipe comes from Picky Palate where you'll also find step-by-step photos on how to make and assemble the cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie & Oreo Brownies

If I had to choose my favourite brownie recipe, out of my entire collection - and there are hundreds - then this would be it. A chocolate chip cookie base is topped with whole oreos and luscious brownie. The oreos soften in the oven, creating one-third of the deliciousness, along with the rich, fudgy chocolate brownie and the crunchy, chocolate-laden cookie base. The ultimate brownie variation; a work of genius. Yum. I can't even express how much I love these brownies.

Toffee Marshmallow Krispies

Imagine a simple chocolate krispie, except without the chocolate. No, that's not a bad thing here: instead, toffees and mini-marshmallows are melted into the mix to add a chewy, sticky texture with the tastiness of toffee. Extremely simple to make and delicious, there is no reason you shouldn't be making these in the next 20-30 seconds.
