What do you do?
I’ve got the perfect solution for you! Whether you need a dessert in a pinch or you are just craving something sweet that doesn’t take very much effort or time, this Blonde Rocky Road is for you. I saw it online and couldn’t get it out of my head. It was so easy to put together and only took minutes. After a bit of time sitting in the fridge (or throw it in the freezer if you are in a hurry!) you have a delicious and rich treat.
This fudge-like concoction is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. I thought that one piece was very satisfying, but I kept catching my sister going back for “one more piece!” And my mom even called the next day for the recipe, needing something easy and fast to take to a church activity. I’d say it was a hit!
makes 25 pieces
1 12-oz. bag butterscotch chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon-sized pieces
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
3/4 cup salted peanuts, divided
Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with foil. Set aside.
In a large microwavable bowl, combine the butterscotch chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave on 50% power until melted, about 3 minutes, stopping to stir every minute. Stir until smooth.
Stir in the vanilla, salt, 2 cups of the marshmallows and 1/2 cup of the peanuts. Pour out into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows and peanuts on top, pressing the candy into the fudge lightly with your hands. Chill until set – 15 minutes in the freezer or about an hour in the fridge.
Turn out onto a cutting board and cut into 25 pieces.
