Easy Rocky Road Bars

Life sometimes gets really hectic and busy, and that is what it's like for me right now. I am gearing up to my final exams of my last semester, about to finish my first degree, and it seems like all the work is due at the same time. Things are busy for me but, like always, I still make time for baking (i.e. I procrastinate doing real work with making delicious goodies!)

The good thing about these squares is that they take about 10 minutes to throw together and 20 minutes to chill in the fridge, then they are ready to go. If you are ever in a jam and need a quick dessert, these are a good option.

These squares are chocolate-y delicious! In fact, I was informed by one person that they thought they were TOO chocolate-y. To that, I say IMPOSSIBLE! There is no such thing as TOO chocolate-y. It simply does not exist.

As a chocolate enthusiast, I fully endorse these bars, and I hope that you all will love them too! Have a great Tuesday!
