Rocky Road Delight

This is a great entertaining recipe that I have appropriated from Pampered Chef. The other nice thing is you can use up what ever left over candy bars(mini or full size) you may have around. Including but not limited to Halloween candy and Easter candy though it is recommended you use something with nougat, caramel, nuts or the like. The recipe says to serve with graham crackers but I really like it with miniature pretzels. I also mix up the base early in the day, let it sit on the counter and then put it in right before company comes.


1 1/4 cup milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 container (8oz)frozen whipped topping, thawed (aka Cool Whip or knock off)
2 full size bars or 4 mini bars chocolate based candy, roughly chopped
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
Pretzels or Graham Crackers to dip


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chocolate morsels and whipped topping in a bowl. Microwave uncovered on high for 1-2 minutes or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Then spoon into a small baking dish.
2. Sprinkle coarsely shopped candy bars over the chocolate base. Top with marshmallows then nuts. Bake 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly toasted.
