Just when you thought it was safe to go into your pantry…BAM! You’re hit with a hankering for something sweet and chewy. I’ve got just the treat that will satisfy your taste buds, and perhaps take you on a nostalgic trip back to grandma’s kitchen. These Rocky Road Buster Bars are great for morning or afternoon breaks, and pair well with a cup of tea or coffee. With a total prep and bake time of 45 minutes, you can easily whip up a few batches for bridal or baby showers, or spoil your bookworm friends at the next book club meeting.
1½ cups graham crumbs
½ cup butter, melted
1½ cups flaked coconut
1½ cups chopped pecans*
1 package (300 g/10.58 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1½ cups miniature marshmallows (we use the colored marshmallows)
1 can (300 mL/10 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
3 squares semi-sweet chocolate
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Line a 13×9-inch pan with foil or parchment paper, with ends of foil/paper extending over sides.
Mix crumbs and butter, press onto bottom of pan. Top with layers of coconut, nuts, chocolate chips and marshmallows. Drizzle with condensed milk.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, melt chocolate squares as directed on package.
Drizzle chocolate over dessert. Let stand until firm. Use foil/paper handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting into bars.
*Substitute dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins or chopped apricots for the nuts.
While you’re waiting for the bars to bake and set, take a seat in your favorite comfy chair and crack open one of my books. May I suggest a trip back in time with The Last Timekeepers?
