Sloth Make Rocky Road

Hey you guys!!

Me Sloth!


You Chunk!


I love you Chunk!

Me Sloth like Rocky Road. You like Rocky Road? Me make it!

Me make Rocky Road with book from Chocolate Man. Buy book here. It good book.


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.


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?

Chunk say.

Haha. I love you, Chunk!


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...

Delicious. You can't go wrong with anything that involves marshmallows.

Is David Lebovitz's book worth picking up? I love his blog but I'm living on a yucky budget these days.

Holy Crap! That made me laugh so hard that I actually snorted! Me love Sloth.

Loved "Goonies"! Had *such* a crush on Sean Astin when I was in high school.

Oh and the rocky road is good too. ;-)

Couldn't you find a more flattering picture of me?

You are SO funny... I've discovered this blog thanks to David L... I'll keep on watching!!!

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!)

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

holy moly that looks good!!!

by the way folks, did you know that there is aplan in the works for goonies 2??

Adam, you're hilarious. I love your blog. Keep up the good work!

Gee, mister. You're even hungrier than I am.


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!

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.

oh c'mon dude i'm so grossed out by that pic - blog already do i dont have to see itt eeeeewwwww
