Make Rocky Road: buy chocolate. 1 1/4 lbs [565 grams] [20 oz.] bittersweet or semisweet. Chop chocolate. Knife scary so ask mama….

Mama! You been bad!

Put 16 oz chocolate in heatproof bowl. Put on simmery water. Melt and stir until smooth.

Take off heat. Stir in other 4 oz. Take temperature—not like Mama take temperature! When it fall to low 80 F, put back on heat and “flash” 3 to 5 seconds. Take off. Watch temp. Do again. You want between 88 to 91, but to quote book: “You’ll need to flash several times to get it to the correct temperature. Don’t be tempted to keep the chocolate over the heat until it reaches the proper temperature; it will continue to rise after you remove the bowl from the heat. (If the temperature rises over 91 F, you’ll need to begin the process all over again.)”

It scary!

When right temperature, add 4 cups mini marshmallows and 1 1/2 cups roasted, unsalted peanuts. Spread on wax-lined cookie sheet.

  1. I’ve been thinking about making rocky road since picking some up from the Margaret River chocolate factory in Perth. Thanks for the recipe. I may think about adding toasted coconut as well..mmmm…

  2. What a coincidence that you posted thta today – the day that I brought a rocky road sandwich for part of my lunch! (Nothing says “Yum!” like crunchy peanut butter, Nutella, and marshmallows on fresh bread!)

  3. That was hilarious! Seriously, really. And the pictures almost made me break my fast an hour early. *the sound of an empty stomach grumbling*

  4. I was one of the honored few who got to taste the AG’s rocky road and it was sooooo good. I just wish I had more. It also makes for a great morning pre-run snack. You should try it!

  5. I just bought and watched the Goonies movie yesterday, as happenstance would have it. Not to be missed bonus feature on the DVD: Cindi Lauper music video of her song, “Goonies are Good Enough” which is bizarre, to say the least. I didn’t have MTV back when this was made, but I’m hoping it is not classic of its era, featuring, as it does, all the big WWF wrestlers of the day.
