Rocky Road Bars. Yes, please.

Cococnut and Marshmallow Rocky Road Cookie Bars

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 random experimental recipe that we tried for our gift bags this year.  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.

Just keep repeating that to yourself as you eat these.

Rocky Road Cookie Bars (from AllRecipes)

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted.
  • 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1.5 cups flaked coconut
  • 1.5 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1.5 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 (1 oz) squares semisweet chocolate

What You’ll Do:

Preheat oven to 350F.  Mix melted butter with graham cracker crumbs and press onto the bottom of a 9×13 pan.  Layer coconut, nuts (healthy! healthy!!), chocolate chips, and marshmallows over the crust.  Drizzle condensed milk evenly over the entire thing.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown.  Melt 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave, being careful not to overheat.  Dip a fork into the chocolate and flick or drizzle over the finished bars.  Chill in the refrigerator (makes them easier to cut) and slice into squares using a wet knife.

    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! 

  4. Are you kidding me>! These look phenomenal! I love how toasted the mini marshmallows get, and the chocolate drizzled on top…can you say YUM? I’ll be making these for sure!
