Rocky Road Bars

The day after my last post, I woke up in labor. It started at 9 a.m. on the 22nd and didn't end until 3:22 pm the following day. Needless to say, with a very large baby boy to take care of there hasn't been much time for cooking or baking. Some really awesome people were kind enough to bring us meals after our son was released from the NICU (a long story there!) so I wanted to repay their kindness with some tasty chocolate treats. This is one that I made.

I pulled this recipe from Nestle. It's not time consuming to make. (You can do it between diaper changes and wondering if you've remembered to shower.) It's so good that my husband who doesn't care much for treats actually ate a couple of bars.


  • 1 package (19.5 to 21 oz.) fudge brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, per package directions
  • 2 large eggs, per package directions
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

  1. Mix and bake the brownie mix according to the directions on the box BUT substitute the evaporated milk for water in greased 13x9 inch pan.
  2. Bake brownies according to directions. (Test with spaghetti to see if they're done.)
  3. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate morsels. Let stand 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny. Spread evenly. Top with marshmallows and walnuts.
  4. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or just until marshmallows begin to melt. 
  5. Cool in pan on wire rack for 20 to 30 minutes.
