Do you like Rocky Road ice cream? Then you are going to love Rocky Road candy. It’s incredibly easy to make which makes it all the better.
It needs things that are soft, crunchy, creamy, and flavorful. Thus the marshmallows, nuts, and chocolate.
For mine, I took large store bought marshmallows and halved and quartered them turning them into eight little pieces each. I got dark chocolate covered honeycomb and chopped it into smaller pieces as well. I mixed this all together with cinnamon roasted almonds to add some nice flavor and make me feel a little better about eating it.
Take your preferred chocolate, I used 85% dark, melt it down, and temper it. Poor it all over the other mixed ingredients and ensure that every piece is covered with chocolate.
Line a pan with wax paper, poor the mixture into the pan and level it out. Set in the fridge to set up.
When you are ready to eat it, cut and serve.
I don’t eat a lot of sugar, but when I do I like to go all out. My kids love to make things in the kitchen with me too. Since Halloween is coming up and we were having some guests over I decided to make some homemade candy with the kids. I love rocky road ice cream, but have you ever had rocky road candy? I made a relatively fancy version of it. I figure you might as well luxe it up if you are making it yourself. I chopped up some large marshmallows and dark chocolate honeycomb candy, melted 85% dark cacao, and mixed in cinnamon roasted almonds. It was quite the decadent treat and will be made again.
