Rie's Rocky Road


  • 3 huge Hershey's bars - about 8 oz. each - plain milk chocolate, no almonds
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows


  1. Use a pan about 12 inches by 8 inches - 9x13 would be too big.
  2. Melt the chocolate bars in the top of a double boiler. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chopped nuts. When it has chilled a touch, fold in the marshmallows. (Don't want it to be so hot that they melt.) Spread evenly in the pan and leave on the counter to cool/harden. Cut into squares. (Don't refrigerate it before you cut it or you will need a chisel.) I found that it took almost 3 hours to get to a consistency where I could cut it and lift pieces out of the pan neatly. Might be less time if you
  3. aren't in humid Florida.
