Rocky Road Bars

rocky road bars recipe

These Rocky Road Bars were the surprise hit of the summer. They are so simple to make, and people go crazy for it. I made these bars for a lunch that I was hosting, as an afterthought, and had no idea that they would be the most popular thing on the table. But really? Can I be surprised? Chocolate and gooey marshmallow. I cannot say no to that either. They are so beautiful, the white and brown swirls, contrasting with each other. This recipe is one of those recipes that looks very impressive, but is made with a few simple ingredients that you might already have in your pantry. You can wow people when ever you want.

You know what else wows me? A baby in swim trunks. Those shorts get me every time. I don’t even care when he gets wet little footprints all over my kitchen floor when he is wearing this little number.
