I'm Baaaack! With Rocky Road Candy

Hello friends!  Since it's been awhile since my last post, I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  I apologize for disappearing for a few months, but it just needed a break from blogging about my cooking.  I still cooked and I still took pictures, but for some reason, they just didn't magically blog themselves.  Bummer, right?  Anyway, I'm back with recipes to share, so let's get to it!
When I was a kid, my mom would make Rocky Road Candy every Christmas, as gifts for people, and they would rave about!  Now that I'm a "grown up," I make it for friends during the holidays too and it is something that I look forward to it all year long.  Not only is it chocolaty and delicious, but it is ridiculously easy!  No joke, there are only 4 ingredients and it takes less than 8 minutes to make.  Besides all that, what I love the most about this is the butterscotch chips!  You don't suspect them to be in there, but then you bite into the candy and get that yummy butterscotch flavor in the background.  Mmmm!  I highly recommend that you make this candy, whether it's Christmas time or not.








All cut up and ready to be eaten!

Rocky Road Candy by Mom


  • 1 bag of chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup of chunky peanut butter
  • 2 cups of marshmallows
  • Anything else that will make your candy "rockier": raisins, nuts, craisins, etc.
  1. Put chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a microwavable bowl.  Melt on high for about 3 minutes, until smooth.
  2. Stir in marshmallows.
  3. Pour into a greased 11 x 8 pan and refrigerate for a few hours or even overnight, until hard.
  4. Cut into 1 inch squares and store in the refrigerator until ready to give away or eat.
