I came across a new-to-me dessert while walking through the Publix bakery last week and after I saw it, I KNEW I had to recreate it’s deliciousness at home.
While I had never seen this dessert before, it seems like it might be a popular one per my Instagram post!
There were multiple things that drew me to this dessert… It was chocolate-y, marshmallows were involved, there was a crunch factor with almonds, and – most importantly – it was GORGEOUS.
Desserts can be pretty, right?!
I loved the contrast of the dark chocolate with the white marshmallows and the light brown almonds. I’m sure a few handfuls of cranberry would make the color contrast that much more eye catching <– Of course I think of this AFTER I make them at home ;)
When it comes to holiday entertaining, let’s be honest, we like to appear like we put in a ton of effort with the least amount of work. A decorated house, a pretty tree, fancy attire, and – you guessed it – pretty desserts. Don’t tell me I’m the only one who thinks this way!
Thankfully, with these Rocky Road Fudge Bites, you can make a pretty dessert with minimal effort. It only takes 5 minutes of prep work, 30 minutes of cooling, a minute of slicing, and voila! – a gorgeous holiday dessert fit for the fanciest of parties.
Rocky Road Fudge Bites
Makes 24 “slices”
- 4 TBSP butter, unsalted
- 1 – 12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup Blue Diamond Lightly Salted Almonds, chopped
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries (I haven’t tried these in it but I think they would make a FAB addition)
Melt butter over medium heat in saucepan. Reduce heat to low and stir in chocolate chips until melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 3 minutes. Stir in Blue Diamond Lightly Salted Almonds, marshmallows and cranberries until well combined. Spread into a long line on a sheet of wax paper. Roll the paper around the chocolate mixture and place into refrigerator until cooled. Using a sharp knife, slice “dough” into 1/2 inch pieces. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!
Seriously y’all. This is one of the simplest – and prettiest! – desserts I’ve ever prepped. I can’t wait to serve these at our next holiday party.
What is your favorite dessert to serve at holiday parties and family gatherings?
