What is Rocky Road made of?
Rocky road has taken on a few variations since its creation. Originally, it began as an ice cream flavor comprised of chocolate, nuts, and marshmallows.
Nowadays, rocky road has been incorporated as a flavor combination for nearly every popular dessert. This includes not only ice cream but also cookies, brownies, fudge, cake, and, of course, bark!
This rocky road chocolate bark is classically simple. It’s comprised of dark chocolate chips, roasted and salted almonds, mini marshmallows, and coconut oil.
How to Make Rocky Road Chocolate Bark
Start by chopping the roasted and salted almonds. Then, roughly chop the mini marshmallows. It’s totally fine to keep some of the almonds and mini marshmallows intact.
Next, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until nearly all of the chocolate is melted. Careful to not overdo it! Chocolate burns quite easily. This step should only require ~90 seconds in total. You’ll know it’s done when almost all of the chocolate chips are melted but a few are still intact. At this point, stir the chocolate to fully melt everything together. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove.
Next, line a small baking sheet (or dish) with parchment paper. Evenly spread the melted chocolate across the baking sheet in a 1/2 inch layer.
Toss the crushed almonds and mini marshmallows on top of the melted chocolate.
Next, store the rocky road chocolate bark in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to harden. After, break the bark apart into 2-3 inch pieces. Enjoy!
