Rocky Road Ice Cream

This Rocky Road Ice Cream is a rich, smooth chocolatey bowl of deliciousness blended with fluffy mini-marshmallows and chopped roasted almonds.

Rocky Road Ice Cream recipe from RecipeGirl.com

It is said that the combination of rich chocolate ice cream, marshmallows and nuts was first invented in the late 1920’s then named Rocky Road during the Great Depression.  There have been many variations over the last 80+ years, some with chocolate chunks, others with walnuts.  However the most popular combination by far seems to include the basics: almonds and marshmallows mixed in chocolate ice cream.  The amount of marshmallows and almonds varies greatly from brand to brand, but when making homemade you can adjust those add-ins to suit your taste.
