Rocky Road Bars with Caramel Topping

If you’re a marshmallow fan, or Rocky Road bars in particular, you are going to truly love this dessert.  The Caramel Sauce puts a bit of a spin on the familiar candy bar and makes this treat just that much more special.  The bars can be packed into a lunch bag or brought along on a picnic, or prepared as a particularly luscious taste treat following a light meal.  If you don’t eat it all at once, it will freeze nicely for at least 3 months.
