Rocky Road Goodness

Hiiii there! Happy Rainy Tuesday night to you...I'm loving this weather!

I made these EASY Rocky Road bars for a work luncheon event that we had today and I got rave reviews from everyone so I had to share here on the blog too. They are from one of MY favorite food blogs ever, Eat, Live, Run...you all should be reading this blog daily, it's so great. And the best part about these is that they are NO bake!

The only change I would recommend is leaving the bars in the fridge for longer than it calls for to firm up even more, I had a few fall apart on me. Oh and use a SHARP knife to cut them into bars, that will help too.

No-Bake Rocky Road Bars
makes about 12-14 bars
4 cups graham cracker crumbs (You can buy boxes of already ready to go crumbs just FYI)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 12-oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup evaporated milk
Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows, nuts and powered sugar in a large bowl. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Add the evaporated milk to the chocolate and stir until smooth and incorporated. Pour chocolate over graham cracker marshmallow mixture and toss until well combined.
Press mixture into a well-greased nine inch pan and pat down (easiest to do with wet hands!). Place in fridge until firm (about an hour). Dust with powdered sugar and slice into squares.
1.5 hours
