Rocky Road No Bakes

 It's time for June's Taste Creations and we are featuring recipes with that delicious combination of marshmallow, nuts, and chocolate lovingly known as Rocky Road.  

According to Wikipedia, the flavor was invented in 1929 when William Dreyer (of ice cream fame) cut up marshmallows using his wife's favorite scissors and added them to an ice cream base of chocolate and walnuts.  A chemical engineer for the ice cream company figured out a way to blend the ingredients so that the pieces remained mixed instead of sinking to the bottom.

My Rocky Road No Bakes pay homage to the original flavors of walnut, chocolate, and marshmallow, but I have put them together in a brownie/fudge-like dish that does not require any kind of baking.  It is delicious and decadent, so a little goes a long way!

My Taste Creation friends have created other wonderful dishes this month, too.  Let's check them out:

Nikki from Tikkido made Rocky Road Cookie Pizza.

Lauren from Mom Home Guide made Rocky Road Fudge

The recipe below is easy and fun.  If you decide to try it, let me know how it goes!  I tested it in my own kitchen several times like I do all recipes here on the blog.  Hearing from you about your experiences helps me adjust the recipe to make it the best it can be!

  1. I love the addition of the peanut butter in the mix! What a delicious, easy recipe. YUM!

  2. You are speaking my language with these! I love a good no bake dessert.

  3. Trying this recipe out. My last try had the nuts overwhelming the chocolate. So I am definitely trying this

  4. I always thought rocky road was an ice cream flavor only. These bars do seem like a good treat and ice cream not needed.

  5. Oh yum, I love no bake desserts. These look delicious. I'll be making them with the kids!

  6. Looks good! I like that you made your fudge with marshmallow creme instead of marshmallows!

  7. I wonder if this can be made dairy-free. These look so delicious

    There's something awesome about rocky road, but i've always just bought it because it looked complicated - this looks like even i might be able to do it...

    Seeing the thickness of the chocolate and the soft mallows on top of is so enticing.

  12. That sounds like a lovely Rocky Road recipe. It's great the that there is no need for loads of ingredients or baking.

    I need to make this soon. My husband has been craving for chocolate these past few days and this would be a really nice treat that I can make for him.

  14. We love Rocky Roads but we especially like your recipe because it is no-bake. I'm excited to have this with coffee.

  15. That is my kind of dessert right there. Yum! Going to save your recipe! -LYNNDEE

    Oh my goodness this is such a great snack. I would love to make a batch of these.

  19. Rocky road bars looks delicious . I need to try it for my kids they will love it.

  20. They do look good. But probably too sweet (and not healthy) for me to eat an entire batch (lol), so it gives me an excuse to bring some to my friends.

  21. Wow! I'm recently having cravings on sweet stuff and then I saw this haha

  22. My husband is a chocolate lover and I am going to suprise him this weekend with this recipe, I am sure he is going to love it
