Gluten Free Rocky Road

So maybe you don't have time to make a big fancy cheesecake but you're thinking to yourself; "Brian, I like chocolate and sugar, do you have something easy for me to whip up?" Funny you should ask. I have just the thing.
Gluten Free Rocky Road:
From Nestle- also known as Mile-High Squares
2 cups (12oz package) Semisweet chocolate chips
1-2/3 cups (11oz package) Butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
9 cups (16oz package) mini marshmallows
In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter. Microwave at 70% power for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, stir the chips around. If they are not quite melted all the way, microwave for another 30 seconds.
Next, stir the peanuts into the melted chocolate/butterscotch/peanut butter.
Empty the package of mini marshmallows into a large bowl. Slowly pour in the chocolate mixture. Coat the marshmallows thoroughly. Finally, line a 9x13 pan with tin foil. Pour the coated marshmallows into the pan and spread evenly. Refrigerate for at least an hour before cutting.
There is a little Christmas magic in every bite. These bars are so simple and have such a great combination of flavors. Make some up today, you won't be disappointed. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!!

  1. Those look yummy! What brand of butterscotch chips did you use? Nestle is not gluten free, but I would love to find a brand that is.

  4. I found some gluten free butterscotch chips at Aldi and made these tonight. I used almond butter and sliced almonds since my husband can't eat peanuts. They are yummy!
