Rocky Road Day: Rocky Road Recipes You Didn’t Know About
There aren’t many holidays in the month of June (who needs holidays when you have this much sunshine to celebrate?!), but we’re celebrating a special day on June 2: Rocky Road Day! Rocky road is that favorite summer treat: chocolate chips, almonds and marshmallows swathed in chocolate ice cream. It was created during the Great Depression to give people something to smile about — and close to a century later, it’s still making people smile. But rocky road has been re-invented many times — here are 5 ways to enjoy rocky road that you didn’t know about.
Nutella Greek Yogurt Rocky Road Parfait This one is an easy one! Baker By Nature put together this Nutella Greek Yogurt Rocky Road Parfait with just five ingredients, so if you’re in the mood for something sweet and don’t have a lot of provisions stocked in your cupboard, you may be able to whip this one up. In addition to only five ingredients, this recipe only takes five minutes to complete, so if you’re short on time and long on kids to treat, put this on your weekly summer dessert menu. Basically, you mix the yogurt and Nutella together and start layering it with the marshmallows, peanuts and chocolate.
Rocky Road Popcorn Clusters Here’s another easy rocky road recipe — it only takes about 15 minutes to construct Rocky Road Popcorn Clusters. Farm Flavor put together simple step-by-step instructions for this no-bake sweet treat. Packaged nicely, these make a great potluck treat or snack to bring to events.
Rocky Road Fluff Salad Though “salad” is in the title of this recipe, it has absolutely nothing to do with lettuce, tomatoes and vinaigrette! But Inside Bru Crew Life adjusted the definition of salad to include chocolate pudding, dessert whipped topping and marshmallows. It only takes about ten minutes to stir together all the different versions of sugar and another hour in the refrigerator for it to reach its flavor peak, but when this dessert is ready, the only reason you’ll be thinking about salads is to figure how to make up for the bowl of sin you’re eating.
Rocky Road Smoothie This list wouldn’t be complete without a milkshake recipe. A Cozy Kitchen broke it down into 4 ingredients that take approximately three pulses on the blender to turn it into the perfect frozen treat. As a bonus, she threw in a recipe for rocky road cookies — in case you want to bake your rocky road and take it on a picnic.
Elvis on a Rocky Road Bundt Cake This is probably the most decadent and labor-intensive rocky road recipe out there — It’s Yummi somehow blended Elvis Presley’s love for peanut butter and bananas and wove it together with marshmallows and chocolate to come up with the richest bundt cake ever made! This cake isn’t for beginner bakers — it takes some practice in the kitchen to work your way up to this recipe. But it’s fun to look at and something to aspire to make.
