Rocky Road Bars

This recipe is my most favorite. If you take it anywhere for a dessert, make sure you grab a plate and put this on it first because it goes so fast and this is no joke. It is that wonderful and delicious. My husband went to get a piece for himself and it was only 15 minutes later and it was gone. I know you will love it. Give it a try at home first so you can at actually have some before you make it and take it somewhere. I have been trying all summer to send it in but summer is flying by so fast and there seems to be more work then ever to be done before winter. I need either more days in a week or more arms. Either way I think at the rate I am going, it will be done in about 3 years!
