Rocky Road Candy Jeanne's Way
How to Make Rocky Road Candy Jeanne's Way
- 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. Note: if you want a very special Rocky Road (my favorite way to make this) then use Belgian Chocolate instead of the milk chocolate chips. I buy my Belgian chocolate from Trader Joe's and it is the large 1 pound bar of chocolate. I use 1 & 1/2 bars for a bag of marshmallows!
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. This is not necessary if you give the whole recipe as a gift, which I do all the time.
