Rocky Road Candy Jeanne's Way

When I was young my mother shopped at a grocery store that had a candy shop connected to it. Every time I was at the shop I looked at everything they had but always ended up in front of the Rocky Road? To this day the only candy that I can remember being in the shop is the Rocky Road. And what's not to forget? You have milk chocolate, marshmallows and walnuts which is an unforgettable combination of goodness. I am sure there are many recipes out there for Rocky Road but this is my own that I want to share with you. My family and friends love it when I serve them this decadent confection!

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Microwave

Ingredients

2 10oz. bag(s)
marshmallows regular size
3 11.5 oz. bag(s)
ghirardelli milk chocolate chips
2 - 3 c
coarsely chopped walnuts, your preference

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Open bags of Marshmallows and place in large bowl.
Footnote: I have changed this recipe after noticing that regular size marshmallows are smaller than before. The bag was a 1 pounder but it is now 10 ounces. I used to cut them in half but I no longer do that. I also used to use 1 bag but now I use 2 10 ounce bags and it turns out perfect.
2
Butter well, a 9" by 13" pan.
3
Open all bags of Milk Chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave 1 minute at 50% power 3 to 4 times while stirring each time until chocolate has melted. Watch carefully and do not overheat or burn.
4
Add chopped walnuts to marshmallows and mix in with hands.
5
Add all but about 1 cup of the chocolate to marshmallows and nuts.
6
Blend until well incorporated!
7
Pour mixture into buttered pan. Press mixture down as much as possible with large spoon or spatula.
8
Pour remaining chocolate on candy and ice top as you would a cake.
9
Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to set.

Hints:
Once candy sets it does not need to remain in the refrigerator and is easier to cut when it is at room temperature.

If you give as a gift it is best to cut in hunks rather than pieces to stay fresh longer. Wrap in Saran Wrap.

Freezes well!
