My husband loves rocky road things, and although I don't share his passion or see what the big deal is about rocky road things, I like to keep him happy, so I came up with this combination for him...but I won't lie. I secretly really liked them a lot!!!
No-Bake Peanut Butter Rocky Road Bars
Makes 12-16 bars
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4-1/2 cup roasted peanuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup marshmallows
1 1/2 cups oats
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, milk and butter. Over medium heat, stir constantly until mixture boils, then cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and oats.
In a waxed paper lined, lightly greased 8x8" pan spread and press half the mixture. Use your hands if you need to, but be careful cause it's probably pretty hot!
Over the first layer, sprinkle 1/4 cup chocolate chips, marshmallows, and peanuts.
In 4 sections, drop the remaining batter over your toppings, working carefully, and press top layer into them.
Top off with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips, pressing in to top.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before lifting wax paper out of the pan and cutting.
