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. :)
4 cups rice krispies cereal
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup peanuts
12 oz peanut butter
1 1/2 lbs baking chocolate
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)
