I have always loved the mixture of chocolate and marshmallows, so when I saw this Rocky Road Candy, I knew I couldn’t pass it up!
Rocky Road Candy
Ryder sees me cooking all the time and loves to help out. He always says, “Mommy! Are you making a recipe?” Which is always followed by, “Can I help with the recipe?”
I don’t always get to say yes since I cook with egg and raw meat a lot, but with this Rocky Road Candy recipe. I was delighted I could say yes! We had a blast stirring together and plopping them on the wax paper. The only problem was the lesson in patience on waiting for them to set up…I don’t know if it was harder for him or me! Yum!

- Once again, I used my Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker. It is perfect to melt chocolate and easy to clean up! Your favorite 5-6 quart crock pot will work too. 🙂
- All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
