Favorite Rocky Road Bars

I finally got the baking started.  I started with Hubby's favorite, rocky road bars.  This is the bar that my friends wait for me to make - I guess this is everyone's favorite. OK - here's a secret, they are so easy to make, I mean so easy - I'll show you. 

All you need is:
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 bag)
1 2/3 cups of butterscotch chips (1 bag)
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or creamy whatever you have in the pantry)
9 cups of mini marshmallows (1 bag)
1 cup of dry roasted peanuts

All you do is:
Line a 13x9 pan with foil

Microwave both chips and peanut butter in a large uncovered bowl for about 2 1/2 minutes, stir and if needed microwave some more for about 15 seconds.  Stir until melted.  Cool for 1 minute. Stir in your marshmallows and peanuts.


Spread the mixture into your foil lined pan. Refrigerate until firm. 

Cut into squares:

Maybe wrap for gifts:

Enjoy!

Thank you to my followers!  I am so happy to announce that I have reached 50 followers - very exciting!!
