  • In a medium saucepan, place butter and cocoa; heat over low, stirring constantly, until butter has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in sugar, egg, flour, milk, and vanilla until combined.

  • Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove pan from oven; sprinkle top evenly with marshmallows, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Return to oven, and bake until marshmallows puff, about 3 minutes. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack, about 1 hour. Then refrigerate until topping hardens, about 1 hour. Use paper overhang to lift from pan; cut into 12 bars.

Cook's Notes

Place walnuts in a resealable plastic bag, and use a rolling pin or meat mallet to crush them to desired size. Wrap each bar in a piece of waxed paper for mess-free transport.

@CandyKay: I think your idea sounds fantastic (we prefer s'mores to rocky road over here anyway). Why couldn't you add those? I say graham away.

I used this to dress up some store bought brownies for a company party. Just add the toppings and place in oven like at the end of the recipe.

Could you use chopped graham crackers on top instead of chopped walnuts?

Just use equal amount of flour for the cocoa. Like making a blonde.

These bars were delicious! Very simple. The instructions are a tad bit different than when they were in the magazine last summer.

Cocoa is generally found in the baking aisle while hot cocoa is found in with the beverages. No troubles finding either in our grocery stores. Thanks for a great recipe Nancy from a Wellander.

White cocoa does exist. It's usually found as a hot cocoa though. You'd have to adjust the sugar called for in the recipe a little as the cocoa will contain sugar. Try Zingermanns deli or King Arthur flour online. They both carry unique and hard to find baking ingredients. Good luck!

The great thing about cooking is adapting to meet your own needs. Experiment with what you can use and see how it turns out! I know there are white chocolate chips available, but what will you substitute for the cocoa?

I can't have chocolate, do you think we can do this with white chocolate? I use to love rocky road candy, one of my favs. Hopefully someone will respond about the chocolate
