Rocky Road Chocolate Bark – A Sweet Gift To Give For #ChristmasWeek

Welcome to Day Four of Christmas Week. This event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We hope to inspire you to break out those holiday sprinkles and get your bake on!

Recently, I was in one of my favorite stores and saw the prices for that chocolate bark that they have in the fancy tin.  Well – after what I learned with my Hawaiian Crunch White Chocolate Bark, I decided that I’d make my own chocolate bark to give this year (and a little bit extra for under the tree, of course).  One of my favorite childhood ice cream flavors as a child was Rocky Road and after picking up some marshmallows at my local WholePaychex, I decided there was no time like the present.

Seriously – you could make some fabulous candy treats with only pantry ingredients.  This Rocky Road Chocolate Bark has dark chocolate surrounding gooey marshmallows, toasty almonds and pecans and drizzled with a touch of white chocolate.  I finished it with my favorite vanilla salt but you can use a bit of flaky sea salt for that divine sweet and salty bite.

So – need a last minute gift idea – make this Rocky Road Chocolate Bark.  Your friends and family will adore it!

  • 12 ounces of dark chocolate
  • 1 1/4 cups of mini-marshmallows
  • 3/4 cups of pecans, chopped and toasted
  • 3/4 cups of slivered almonds, chopped and toasted
  • 2 ounces of white chocolate, melted
  • 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon of flaky sea salt to garnish (optional) (I used Vanilla Salt)


  1. In a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water, melt the dark chocolate.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
  3. When the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and stir for a few minutes so everything is melted and glossy.
  4. Fold in the marshmallows, pecans and almonds so that everything is coated.
  5. Spread onto the parchment paper or silpat so that it's an even layer of chocolate, marshmallow and nuts.
  6. Using a fork, draw a zig zag pattern over the chocolate with the white chocolate.
  7. Garnish with a bit of flaky sea salt and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  8. Break into shards, package into tins and sneak a nibble or two.
  9. See - easy peasy!
  10. Enjoy!
