There are some recipes that you look at and you just know that they need to be part of your life. Perhaps you read a list of ingredients in an old cookbook – or maybe you see a picture in a magazine. All of a sudden your mind is blank except for one thought…
It all started with almond bark – you just melted chocolate, dumped on some toasted, chopped almonds, let it harden and then you had candy. Easy and perfect for gift giving.
It was easy. Then someone decides that you could add things other than almonds, and that my friends is how we get to this… Rocky Road Bark.
White chocolate, milk chocolate, pecans, marshmallows, caramels, and pecans. so easy that the kids can make it but so yummy that you will probably want to make two batches before anyone gets home and save one for yourself. The white chocolate is rich, the marshmallows and caramel are chewy, and the nuts are crunchy. Milk chocolate is just the icing on the cake – so to speak. This goes great in a candy dish with the mint oreo cookie bark.
This makes a great gift for teachers, Sunday school teachers, friends and… umm.. I guess anyone who is not allergic to nuts…. it is sooooo good.
It really is a quick recipe that you can sprinkle red and green jimmies on for Christmas if you like. It looks fabulous broken in pieces and wrapped in a little tulle tied with a silk ribbon. But you had better make several batches..this seems to evaporate in about a minute.

Well, not quite. These do take a little time to put together but they rise in the refrigerator overnight. Continue reading →
I love Payday candy bars. I don’t get them often because, to be honest, chocolate usually wins out but once in awhile I just can’t resist a Payday. Peanuts..caramels…salty and sweet. Yum.
Back in the day, when you traveled you pulled up to gas stations and the attendants put gas in your car. There was no reason to get out unless you needed sustenance, to use the potty, or both. Almost every gas station had a small glass case that had a couple of candy bars in it and a coke machine outside the door. If I was lucky my mom would give me 15 cents so that I could buy a candy bar. Continue reading →
