Rocky Road Bark ... the easiest to make, most delicious candy in the world!! Well, not in the world. I can think of plenty of other homemade candies that I would probably choose over this one (peanut butter roll is one of them). But it is the easiest to make, as is any type of bark candy. All you need is a bowl, a wooden spoon, and your ingredients. Check it out:

Rocky Road Bark

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Hershey's)
1 bag milk chocolate chips (also Hershey's)
1/2 can salted peanuts or roasted peanuts
1/2 bag miniature marshmallows

Yep, that's it!!

Now, pour each bag of chocolate chips into a glass mixing bowl. Toss them a little so that you have a "mixture" of chocolate flavors throughout. You can either melt the chips in the microwave or over a pan of water on the stove (double-boiler method). Once the chips are completely melted and the chocolate is smooth (it will have a glossy sheen to it), fold in the peanuts and marshmallows making sure that each piece is coated well.

Turn onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and spread out. The mixture should encompass the entire pan. Pop in the fridge until set. When it is set (or if you just can't wait any longer!) take it out of the fridge and break into pieces.

This recipe makes a lot of candy, and I'm warning you, it is super rich!
