Biscuits, marshmallows, crispies, chocolate then covered in chocolate in bar, is something that would have come from the US, and yes like magic it was created in the US, originally in ice cream form back in 1929 by William Dreyer. However now you get bars, brownies, ice cream and it is the perfect way to use up some left over chocolate, marshmallows, cereal and biscuits.
To be honest, you could actually make these to your taste, if you like nuts them throw some in, and believe or not I’ve made these before with roasted salted nuts and it really adds great flavour to the bars, the reason I didn’t do it this time is there might be risk that I might demolish them all! Not a risk my thighs need to take! 🙂
I do now see these bars or a variation of them in most coffee shops from Costa to Starbucks, and when they charge something like £2 per small piece, you can understand why it’s so much better to make it your self, specially when you see how easy it is. This is one of those bish, bash, bosh type recipes where it’s easy to add what ever you might have in your cupboard.
After a long day, some times you just need a small little bar to nibble on while watching TV when the kids are asleep. The Rocky Road bars have the indulgent chocolate, soft marshmallows and crunch from the biscuits and crispies which gives it a great texture and deliciousness.
