Rocky Road Pie |Oh my gosh I made this pie and it was delicious! Perfect for Father's Day!

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.
