Mom's Rocky Road Bars


  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 40 large marshmallows


In a large saucepan, combine and melt the shortening and cocoa. Add sugar and beat vigorously. Stir in eggs, flour and salt. Mix well and add nuts. Bake in greased 9x13 inch glass pan at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes.


Meanwhile, cut marshmallows in half cross-wise. Immediately, when you remove the bars from the oven, lay the marshmallow halves all over the top (touching) with the cut side down. Cover lightly with a dish towel for about 10-15 minutes so marshmallows slightly melt together. Remove towel and allow bars to cool thoroughly. Frost with: 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 3 Tbsp. butter flavored shortening, dash of salt and enough hot water to make a fluffy, spreading consistency. Beat with mixer, adding the hot water a little at a time. Spread on the cooled bars and sprinkle with more chopped nuts, if desired. Makes 30 bars.
