Remember what you were doing on December 22nd, 2012? That’s what I’m doing right now. It’s January 4th, 3 days before Christmas, and I’m just a tad bit short of losing my mind. In the meanwhile I’m wiping runny little noses and soothing irritated throats. The joys of the season.

However, back in the kitchen there’s also quite a show; from cookies to pastries, from smoked meats and sausages to soft pretzels, it can all be found right here at this very moment. ‘Tis the season, and I do love it. I always wish it could last a little longer… ‘Cause I’m too lazy to take down the Christmas Tree. 😉

But, speaking of cookies, I had to add another no-bake favorite to the blog; Rocky Road Chocolate Fudge Bars.

These little gems are for the lovers of Rocky Road, for the lovers of crunchy, creamy, sweet, and for the lovers of chocolate … Yeah, this chocolate fudge is for all of us.

For this recipe, I used walnuts and marshmallows to add to the chocolate. I have seen and tasted similar bars or cookies with peanuts in place of the walnuts, and gelatin in place of sweetened condensed milk. The variations are there, but I like this recipe for Rocky Road Chocolate Fudge Bars the best. They are as soft as pillows, but the walnut provides a sweet crunch, just enough to add to the texture of the bar.

    Oh goodness, I’m glad I’m past the prep. Still not past taking down the decos though. I have to work on that next weekend and I’m not looking forward to it. It’s always so fun to put the tree up and get out all the trinkets, but putting them away…ugh. Enjoy your Christmas Kate! I’m sure everything will come together beautifully for you. 🙂
