Rocky road bars are the great for any impromptu get together! Pile them high on a plate for a night around the pool for a dessert kids and adults will both love.
My love/hate relationship with summer can get a little complicated at times.
Sure…there are days when the kiddos fight over cupcake crumbs and who touched who’s sock…but there are also long lazy nights around the pool and spur of the moment cook-outs with friends.
Said cook-outs usually involve cocktails and laughs and the kids running around the yard out of our hair. And I’m definitely not mad about that.
I used to stress over entertaining – homemade everything, a carefully planned menu – but I have since learned that it’s really about the company. It sounds cheesy, but it’s so true.
Some of our most memorable nights have been when I’ve ran to the store for hot dogs, chips, a few sides, and threw it all on the table so we could enjoy our company without running ourselves crazy.
Rocky road is one of my favorite ice cream flavors, and seeing that it’s summer, the idea for rocky road bars hit me. Chocolate, marshmallow, and peanuts – can you ever go wrong with that?
If there are allergies (or picky kiddos), just swap out the peanuts for some M&Ms and you’re good to go.
You won’t believe how easy and yummy these bars are! They’ll be in your regular rotation in no time. Enjoy!
