  • 13 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 13 oz dark chocolate chips
  • 10 oz marshmallows
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup desiccated/shredded coconut


  • Melt the milk and dark chocolate over a double boiler until fully melted. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and mixed together. Remove from heat and cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Use clean scissors, to cut up your marshmallows into a medium sized bowl. Dip the scissors into boiling water after you cut up each marshmallow to ensure the marshmallows don't stick to the scissors.
  • Heat a skillet or small saucepan over medium to high heat. Add the coconut and toast, stirring for 1-2 minutes, or until coconut is lightly browned and starting to smell.
  • Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. 
  • Add the marshmallow, slivered almonds and coconut to the melted chocolate.
  • Use a spatula to fold in the ingredients, until they are fully coated with chocolate.
  • Pour into your prepared pan.
  • Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, until the chocolate is solid.
  • Roughly chop the rocky road and serve or wrap for a gift.
