What is rocky road flavor?
Rocky road is traditionally known in the US as an ice cream flavor. It is a chocolate ice cream base, with marshmallows and nuts.
If you do any type of recipe searching for rocky road you will find that the type of nut used varies. For this recipe we are sticking to a classic dry roasted peanut.
Ingredients and substitutions
Here are my favorite ingredients to use for this recipe:
- 1-1 gluten free flour ( I like to use this gluten free 1-1 flour)
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- milk chocolate chips
- dry roasted peanuts (just salt and peanuts for the ingredients)
1-1 flour- As mentioned above I really like King Arthur for this recipe. It was only tested with this flour and gluten free flours can be tricky. I do not recommend subbing in a gluten free all purpose flour.
milk chocolate chips- you can use any type of chocolate chips you would like
Dry roasted peanuts- you can sub in any nuts you would like for this recipe, almonds are a very common nut found in rocky road recipes.
These gluten free rocky road brownies are fairly straight forward where there aren't a lot of expert tips needed.
I do always like to recommend using parchment paper. I think it just works best for gluten free baking.
How to store
These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days if you want a chewier experience. The texture will definitely be different if you place the brownies in the fridge but still delicious.
