No Bake Rocky Road Bars

No Bake Rocky Road Bars

This recipe will work fine with any generic frosting mix. I changed the recipe to use a cookie crumb crust so there's no baking needed. For the original version using a sugar cookie crust, see Rocky Road Bars. The dry frosting mix is made by Jiffy.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 25 bars


  • 20 chocolate cream sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 15-ounce package or 2 7-ounce packages DRY milk chocolate frosting mix
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips


Combine cookie crumbs and 1/3 cup melted butter in a small bowl. Press into bottom of a 9" square pan. Set aside while preparing filling.

In heavy saucepan, combine 1/4 cup butter and water and heat to boiling. Add 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and swirl until melted. Add the dry frosting mix (Jiffy brand is best - be sure the boxes add up to about 15 ounces) and beat well. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in marshmallows, pecans, 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and spoon onto the cookie crust. Cool completely and cut into pieces to serve.

If you can't find the dry frosting mix, you can make this with the canned, or tub frosting. Omit the water, 1/4 cup butter, and the dry frosting mix. Melt a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips in a small saucepan.

Remove from heat and add a 16 ounce tub of prepared milk chocolate frosting and beat until smooth. Fold in marshmallows, pecans, and chocolate chips and spread over graham cracker crust; let cool completely and cut into pieces.

Wonderful!, Guest Cindy

My kids made these cookies with my supervision. They are really delicious and fun to make. My youngest daughter took a few to school for lunch and her friends wanted to know all about them after they each had a bite!
