Rocky Road candy has become a family favorite and is often requested when we attend a party. I made it this weekend to bring to a cast party for the high school’s spring musical.
I’ve been making this candy for 15 years. Since I don’t want to violate the author’s copyright, I’ve linked to the website where the original recipe was posted rather than posting the recipe here. But it’s a 10-minute recipe (plus 2 hours cooling time) that’s simple enough for children to make, with a little supervision.
A heavy saucepan
A large bowl
13×9 baking dish
A baking spatula
12-oz bag chocolate chips
14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 TBL butter
10.5-oz bag mini marshmallows
2 cups dry-roasted peanuts
Here’s how to make Rocky Road from Cynthia Townley Ewer’s website.
A one-ounce serving contains 16 carbs. Pieces shown here are one-half ounce (about 3/4-inch cubes), so 8 carbs per piece.
Keep this candy refrigerated until ready to serve.
