Why in the world we don’t seem to have these bars in the US? I see them everywhere here, so simple and how can you go wrong with chocolate, marshmallows, and digestive biscuits? Almost Impossible. The British version does not have nuts, but since in the US and I am American, Rocky Road Ice Cream has nuts in it, I decided to add peanuts. Plus I had leftover honey roasted peanuts so I thought they would make the perfect edition.
Rocky Road Bars Recipe
18 oz of milk chocolate
8 digestive biscuits broken up but not ground/graham crackers would also work (about 4-5)
150 grams or 5.2 oz of Mini Marshmallows
3/4 Cup of Honey Roasted Peanuts or a Nut of your choice
Optional you could add 1/2 cup of raisins or dried cranberries- I did not want to give these any nutritional value so mine did not have them!
8×8 inch baking dish- line the bottom with greased parchment paper.
In a Double Boiler melt the milk chocolate. Once the milk chocolate is completely melted remove from heat and let cool slightly for 2-3 minutes. Then add your ingredients and mix together with a large spoon until all the biscuits, marshmallows, and peanuts are covered. Pour the mixture into the dish and evenly spread out. Refrigerate it for 2-3 hours until the chocolate had harden. Now ready to cut and serve.
It is great to eat on its own, but I took a little with some chocolate ice-cream to make my own version of rocky road ice cream!
