When life throws rocks at you make rocky road

Let me apologize in advance for the poor photo quality. Hurricane Sandy is currently taking a stroll through my neighborhood and her presences doesn't make for the best natural light. So far we've been really lucky, there's no flooding in my neighborhood, we still have power, and I have an excuse to stay in and bake.
 As long as my power stays on throughout this storm I'll be in the kitchen concocting new things to share with you all. I can't wait!

Even though the photos are sub par I promise the recipe is top notch. How could butter, marshmallows, and nutella not lead to something good. This recipe was inspired by The Pioneer Woman's nutella crispy treats. I had gone into the kitchen to prepare that recipe but I decided to spin off on my own and take a rocky road approach. So I used chocolate cereal instead of regular ant topped the treats with chopped almonds and mini marshmallows. I like the slated almonds because it gives you that salty sweet affect. While whipping these up a few more adaptions popped into my head so stayed tuned for more cereal treats.

Rocky Road Puffed Rice Treats

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
10.5 bag of mini marshmallows
2 spoonfuls of nutella
6 cups of chocolate puffed rice cereal
mini marshmallows
chopped roasted salted almonds


Measure cereal into a large glass bowl
In a medium sauce pan melt the butter and then stir in the mini marshmallows, stir until melted. Add in the nutella and stir until combined
pour marshmallow mixture over cereal and fold together with a rubber spatula that has been rubbed with butter or sprayed with no stick spray.
Once evenly coated pour the mixture into a buttered 9x13 casserole dish, top with mini marshmallows and chopped almonds. Allow the treats to set for 30-60 minutes.
