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.

  2. Oh yum. My stomach is yelling at me right now! Note to self - don't visit Brian before dinner. Not a good plan ;D. This looks amazing!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Mmmmm. My neighbor made me some of these for a gluten free holiday treat! Now I know how to make them for myself. Thanks!! They were delicious too.

  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!

  5. Those look amazing! Glad everyone has mentioned the concern about using gf butterscotch chips. I haven't found any at my local store. When I do, I'll be make oatmeal scotchies and this recipe! Love the first and last photos. :-)


  6. 從未遭遇失敗的人,對自己或是別人,都是一知半解的。..................................................

  7. Yummy! I'm going to have to make this with my children, however I will have to use almond butter. Thank you for sharing

  8. Don't marshmellows have modified food starch which have wheat? Is there a special kind of marshmellow.

  9. Waw!! Your GF rocky roads look fantastic & ooh so appetizing too!

    Great as food gifts too!
