Gooey Rocky Road Bars

The most insane rocky road bars ever!  A crunchy graham cracker crust layered with walnuts, marshmallows, coconut, sweetened condensed milk, toasted marshmallows and a chocolate drizzle.

I figured I should get on with posting some of our holiday treats before the leaves come back and the flowers start blooming

This was another experimental recipe that we tried for our gift bags this year.  They turned out incredibly delicious and I knew immediately that I needed to share the recipe with all of you. There’s absolutely nothing healthy about these things.. I apologize.  Well, I suppose they have nuts in them.  And nuts are good, yes?  Yes.  Then they are healthy because they have nuts.

Nutritional info aside, the holidays are a time for indulgences, so please enjoy these to the fullest extent.  We sure did.

I love the look of the golden toasted marshmallows with the chocolate drizzle.  They look so pretty displayed on a holiday tray or packaged into pretty tins for gifts.  They’re a bar that’s sure to impress, and what’s more, they’re so so easy to make.

    Hi I just wanted to say that we have received your Christmas card the last 2 years..we the kids & my husband & I really like getting it., even if it is on accident.
    So we are the new Harris family that lives in Placentia,CA, I guess about 5 years ago there was another Harris Family, that was who I’m assuming your card is for. But last year when I got your card the name looked familiar so we opened it and saw the corgi’s! The kids thought they were so cute! But I did the same thing again this year thinking I knew you guys, but we don’t. Only by Christmas card..So feel free to keep sending them to us but your intended Harris family has a new address :) Thanks!
