Chocolate Rocky Road

Marshmallows, candy, and walnuts are being poured into a bowl containing the chocolate and peanut butter mixture.

A sweet tooth’s dream, chocolate rocky road is a slice that is packed with marshmallows, nuts, and candy. The whole thing is held together by a chocolate and peanut butter mixture. It is crunchy, chewy, creamy, and just plain delicious.

It is suggested that this treat was created around 1853 in Australia. It was a way to use and sell confectionaries that had past their prime on the long import trips from Europe. The chocolate helped cover any flavor issues of the candy.

Now it is a popular treat that can incorporate any marshmallows, nut, or candy combination you can think of, making each one unique. Feel free to add your favorites to create your own custom version. Or use up any pieces of candy and nuts you may have in your cupboard.
