One of my family’s favorite treats is Rocky Road candy. In fact, we love it so much, I’ve started reserving it for the holidays so we don’t overdo it all year long. My kids and I just made it this morning so I’m compelled to share it with all of you who might be looking for some fun new treats for the holiday season!

Rocky Road Candy

2 cups Kix cereal*

2 cups Rice Chex*

4 tablespoons Wow Butter (or other peanut butter substitute)

2 cups white mini marshmallows

1 bag of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

* use any dry cereal that is safe for your family, I prefer the plain corn, wheat or rice cereals w/large pieces that are easy to grab onto.

1. In a large, microwave safe bowl, pour the entire bag of chocolate chips and add the Wow Butter. Microwave for 1 minute and stir, then continue to heat in 15-30 second intervals until completely melted and stirs smooth.

2. Add the cereals and marshmallows. (Encourage your kids to help with measuring and pouring!) Stir it up until all items are coated with chocolate mixture.

3. Spread out a sheet of wax or freezer paper and pour out your candy. Spread it out so it’s in a thin layer and let it dry.

4. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat. Also freezes well!

I purchased the products myself and my opinions are my own. Well, my kids’ opinions, too. :)
