What’s Cookin’ – Peanut Butter Rocky Road

This is the last of the three easy, no-cook Christmas Cookie recipes that we make each year.  I adapted this recipe from one that I received from, Tanya, a co-worker of mine in the 1980s.

I will continue to post more of our Christmas Cookies over the next few weeks, but all of the rest of them require baking.  That doesn’t mean that they aren’t easy and fun to make with your family!

The cast of characters – 5 ingredients!

Put the chips and peanut butter into a bowl and microwave on high for one minute.  Stir and microwave for additional 30 second intervals until completely melted.  Stir until completely smooth.  This took me about 2 minutes and 15 seconds.  Note: I use creamy peanut butter, but the original recipe called for crunchy.  I just don’t think it requires the additional crunchiness.

Add the peanuts and stir until well coated.  Add the marshmallows.

Stir until well coated.  This is why you do not want the mixture to be too hot – you don’t want to melt the marshmallows.

Spread evenly into a buttered 9 x 13 pan.  If you are smart, you will remember to score the Rocky Road before it is completely set.  If you are like me, and don’t get to it until the next day, you will have to let it sit out for a few minutes or get your husband to help you cut it!

This is very rich – cut into 48 small squares!  Yummy!
