Nut Lovers Rocky Road

Nut Lovers Rocky Road

Rocky road is one of my go-to recipes! We make it for ourselves and to take to parties & activities. The thing I love the most about it is how easy and delicious it is! It comes together in just 5 minutes and then gets tossed into the refrigerator to chill until you’re ready to serve it. Sometimes I like to substitute some of the semi-sweet chocolate for bittersweet, making these intensely rich and dark! You can definitely play around with what goes inside- today we did a nut lover’s version. They’re crammed full of peanuts, almonds, walnuts, and of course marshmallows. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, I think chocolate chunks or even some kind of chopped up cookie would be tasty too! Our batch is going quickly- if they last over the weekend these effortless treats will be perfect for the holidays!

  1. Do you stir the chocolate and condensed milk while it’s melting (like you would to temper chocolate) or would that cause the milk to do something funny (like curdle)? 

    1. You microwave for 3 min & then let sit for a couple min. You could stir it after it’s been microwaved, before adding the marshmallows.
