No-Bake Rocky Road Bars

I made these bars for dessert the other night. They’re a big hit with the husband… and with everyone else who eats them. I have to give all the credit to my mom for this one. She discovered the recipe a while back and has been making them for any and all occasions. When people ask her for the recipe, they can’t believe how simple it is, yet for some reason people always seem to get it wrong. So follow the instructions, make sure you’ve got the right ingredients and in less than a couple minutes you’ll have a pan full of fudgy rocky road bars.

  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 (10 oz) bag mini marshmallows


  • In a large glass bowl (big enough to fit in your microwave), combine chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter. Microwave on medium heat for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and allow to cool enough that the marshmallows won't melt (a couple of minutes or so).
  • Fold in peanuts and marshmallows, making sure to coat evenly with chocolate.
  • Pour mixture into a 9x13 pan, lined with wax paper. Press mixture firmly down into the pan.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool for 2-3 hours before serving.
