Have you ever tried homemade Rocky Road Frosting on a dark chocolate cupcake? Or brownies? You don't know what you are missing.
I am giving you a beautiful recipe for rocky road icing that dates back 60 years ago. This is one tasty frosting.
1 (6oz) pkg semisweet chocolate morsels
1/4 cup butter
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
3 TBS scalded milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows (or to taste)
1/2 cup walnuts (or to taste), chopped
chocolate syrup, garnish
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over simmering water; then set aside to cool.
Mix the butter with the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla and mix well. Add the egg and beat until thoroughly combined. Now add the chocolate; stirring until well blended. Stir in the marshmallows and chopped walnuts. I like to warm the frosting a little so the marshmallows are melting and then frost the cake or brownies. It's totally up to you.
You can also use marshmallow fluff and put teaspoon dollops (or pipe it) on the cake after it is frosted. Then drizzle with chocolate and caramel.
