These Rocky Road drop candies feature dark chocolate, chewy marshmallows, and toasted nuts. You can experiment with adding different nuts, chunks of white chocolate, or dried fruit to the mix. If you only have large marshmallows, snip them into smaller pieces with kitchen shears before beginning. This is a great recipe to make with children.

  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (toasted, chopped)
