This recipe was fantastic. Everyone who tried it had said it was great. It is such a quick and easy recipe. I used a 10 1/2 ounce bag instead of a 16 ounce bag of marshmallows.

This was a pretty decent and easy recipe. Although, the recipe calls for way too many marshmallows, and the sweetened condensed milk made it a little overly sweet for my taste. I would substitute some unsweetened evaporated milk next time, and cut back on the marshmallows. One thing I did that was good, I substitued broken graham crackers for the peanuts. It made it taste like little s'more nuggets. My family loved that.

These were wonderful. The only thing I would do different next time is to add less marshmallows.

I lost my Rocky Road Candy recipe. This one was delicious and sooooo easy! Thank you, sara, for submitting it.

This was an easy and delicious recipe. I added crushed digestives though to make it more of an original rocky road recipe. I've made it twice now. Very tasty!

Used 10 oz. marshmallows as others suggested and it was plenty! I will make these again but I think I will add some peanut butter to the chocolate- it just seemed to be the only missing thing.

Couldn't be easier to make and super-delicious. I made this for a coworker who can't have egg or gluten. She LOVES these! I do believe the marshmallow amount is a typo. I used 3/4 of a 10 oz bag and it was PLENTY. I also used half semi-sweet chocolate and 1/2 butterscotch morsels. So so good!

Easy, quick, and delicious. Used less marshmallows and left out the nuts (allergies), but it came out great. Next time I would make it in a smaller pan, so the bars can be a little thicker.
