rocky road


A bumpy-textured candy that's a mixture of miniature marshmallows, nuts and sometimes small chunks of dark, white or milk chocolate. The candy is so named because it resembles a "rocky road" in appearance. This favorite flavor combination is also used for a number of desserts from ice cream to pies.
