Rocky Road

An old-fashioned, no-bake candy Why did people ever stop making rocky road? It’s so easy and has such a wow factor. You basically just cut up marshmallows to line an 8″ pan, then pour a chocolate-butter-nut mixture on top. This would be perfect in the summertime when you don’t want to turn on the oven,…

Homemade Marshmallows

Pillowy, sweet clouds perfect for s’mores and hot cocoa  I can’t believe how easy marshmallows are to make. How have I not made them until now?! I’m never going back. They’re quite fun to make too.
