Rocky Road Chocolate Bars


Rocky Road ice cream is Alexander's favorite ice cream. Marshmallows! Anything with marshmallows is on "Alex's favorite things to eat" list.
That's why, when I found this recipe in " bars and squares" recipe book by Jill Snider, I had to give it a try.
Needless to say that everybody in the house loved the bars, especially Alex. I kept the bars in the freezer and Alex calls those, ice cream bars. So if you like rocky road ice cream then give those bars a try, they are so easy to make.

Ingredients

Crumb mixture:

1 1/2 cup ................................ graham wafer crumbs
1 1/2 cup ................................ miniature marshmallows ( withe or colored )
1/2 cup ................................. chopped pecans ( or almonds, walnuts )
1/2 cup ................................. icing sugar sifted
2 tbsp ................................. milk

Chocolate Mixture:

2 cups ................................. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup .................................. milk
3 tbsp .................................. butter
1/4 cup .................................. icing sugar sifted.


Grease an 8 inch square pan or dish.

In a large mixing bowl combine graham wafer crumbs, marshmallows, icing sugar pecans and milk. Combine until all the ingredients are moistened. Set aside.

Chocolate mixture:

In a small heavy sauce pan combine chocolate chips, milk and butter. Stir constantly over low heat until the chocolate is almost melted ( don't overheat).



Remove and stir until smooth and shiny.


Pour half of the mixture ( about 3/4 cup, no need to be exact) over the crumb mixture. Mix well. Spread evenly into the prepared pan or dish.


Stir the 1/4 cup of the sifted icing sugar in the remaining half of the chocolate mixture in the sauce pan, mixing well. Spread over the base mixture, smooth the surface and freeze for 1 hour or until the chocolate is set on top.


Cut into bars, and serve. I like keeping those in the freezer, but you can keep them in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Will these melt if they're taken out of the fridge and left for a few hours?

Laura said...

Hello Rachel,

It depends on how many hours. For a couple of hours it should be OK. (if are not in direct sun). I hope this helps. Thanks for visiting :-)
