Rocky Road

I have really fond memories of cookies and candies that my mom made around the holidays and Rocky Road has always been one of my favorites.

I'm not sure why I only make these at Christmas time, other than it seems to preserve the tradition. Maybe they're more special when only eaten once a year? Maybe my hips and thighs and belly jiggle will thank me for keeping this to a seasonal tradition. :)

Ingredients:

4 cups rice krispies cereal
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup peanuts

12 oz peanut butter
1 1/2 lbs baking chocolate

Directions:
Melt chocolate and peanut butter in a large pot. Remove from heat and dump in all other ingredients. Stir thoroughly and drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Try and wait until cooled to eat. :O)

that's great that you have memories of baking this when you were a kid and now you are able to do with your own family. i agree some things are best when saved for a special time each year.

Dave's grandmother also makes rocky road for Christmas - she makes big batches for each child & grandchild she has (which is a lot). She adds cut up jube lollies to hers!
This recipe sounds great & I love the way you put it in bite size pieces!
