Rocky Road Pie | Chocolate cake, chocolate chips, chocolate whip cream, marshmallows and nuts. What’s not to LOVE? Keep these ingredients in your pantry for an easy last minute dessert! If you love the rocky road candy bar then you will quickly fall in love with this pie!
This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. I make it for him every year for Father’s Day. So…as you might of guessed this really isn’t a pie other then the fact that it’s made in a pie pan.
I love how easy it is to make with simple ingredients like a cake mix and frozen whipped topping you’d be surprised at how delicious this pie is. To add to the decadence I added a drizzle of melted chocolate to the top.
