Rocky Road Cookie – yes, that’s right, with Snickers too

By Carmela Villegas of Casa San Luis

This is probably the most sinful cookie bar ever made!! Those who are on a strict no carbs or no sugar diets should just feast with their eyes. I know, what a terrible thing to say. However, we are talking about soul food this week, so maybe through your eyes you can nourish your soul? Quite an abstract statement. Still very much absurd.

This bar is very handy to have around in the kitchen for those unexpected visitors. Warm it up in the microwave for 5 seconds and place it on top of a scoop of ice cream.

This recipe is also very easy to make. You can make it by hand with a wooden spoon and just 1 mixing bowl.  It’s child friendly so you can have your little helpers around while you do this recipe. Just a piece of advice, don’t finish the marshmallow and chocolate before it’s time to use them.

Rocky Road’s main ingredients are Marshmallow, Milk Chocolate and Nuts. I chose to use Snicker bars in this recipe because it cuts the prep time down considerably. You may use milk chocolate and add walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts if you wish.

Some nerdy fact: Did you know that the name of this dessert is derived from the “Rocky Roads” travellers took to get to the gold mines in Australia. (The Fat Kid Inside note: “I totally knew this……..”)

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
