Hey you guys!!
I love you Chunk!
Me Sloth like Rocky Road. You like Rocky Road? Me make it!
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.)”
When right temperature, add 4 cups mini marshmallows and 1 1/2 cups roasted, unsalted peanuts. Spread on wax-lined cookie sheet.
Put in fridge and chill.
I take nap. Rockabye baby on treetop, when wind blows cradle will rock, when bow breaks the cradle will fall… falll… FALLL!!!!!!!
When firm, take out and break in pieces. Look!
Mmm! Sloth like Rocky Road! Look close!
Me eat whole thing! None for you, Chunk! I sorry Chunk! What you have to say?
Haha. I love you, Chunk!
