Fudgy Rocky Road Bars

As you flip through magazines, things catch your eye and you just can’t help but re-create them.

This recipe from Everyday Food had everything I love in a sweet snack – FLUFF! – nuts – graham crackers – and fudge. Very hard to resist. Very simple to put together.

It’s a good thing there’s always an endless stream of hungry boys through my house or I would be eating way too many of these things!

  • 8 graham crackers
  • 1 1/2 C natural almonds, toasted and roughly chopped
  • 1 C marshmallow Fluff
  • 1 bag (12oz) semisweet chips
  • 1 can (14oz) condensed milk

Preheat oven to 375

Line bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with graham crackers, breaking if necessary. Bake until crackers are lightly toasted and fragrant, about 8 minutes.

NOTE: Who knew that lightly baked graham crackers could smell so good!? They get slightly nutty in flavor and smell and the flavor of them becomes much deeper.

Sprinkle with almonds.

Dollop with Fluff.

NOTE: It should say dollop the bars with Fluff and not you. Very hard to take 1 cup of Fluff out of the jar and dollop onto the bars without ingesting it all! Fortunately there was enough leftover in the jar for a Fluffernutter or 2 – JUST FOR ME!

In a heatproof bowl over simmering water, combine chocolate chips and condensed milk. Cook, stirring occasionally until chips melt and mixture is smooth.

Pour chocolate mixture over marshmallow topping.

NOTE: This mixture is very thick and as it cools it gets even thicker. You have to work very quickly and very lightly. Anything but a light touch makes the nuts and Fluff move around too much.

Swirl with a knife. Refrigerate for about an hour to set.

NOTE: Be careful swirling. The mixture is thick, the Fluff is thick so a thin blade doesn’t really swirl it, but be careful not to scoop up the nuts in the swirling.

Cut. Enjoy!

NOTE: The only problem I experienced with cutting these is the graham crackers don’t really get adhered to the nuts, Fluff and fudgy goodness. The nuts are between the fluff and fudge and crackers so unless, somehow, the goop gets through the nuts to the crackers, they don’t stick much and the crackers tend to fall off when cutting or first bite. Really, seem like much of a problem? Gonna stop you from eating them? Nope and nope. Just sayin’ …

  1. With sweets I always wonder how quickly my coworkers would eat them. These would be gone in two seconds!

  2. They only lasted slightly longer than that here! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh, how wonderful! I might try these with a graham cracker crust 🙂

    • What a great idea! That would definitely solve the crust problem… especially if you bake the crust a bit … or toast the graham crackers and then make the crust!

  4. This looks like an awesome recipe! We’ll definitely have to try this out.
