To create this mouthwatering Rocky Road Candy we start by melting chocolate in the crockpot to achieve a smooth and velvety consistency. Then, for an added crunch, toss in a medley of chopped nuts, pretzels and coconut.

Adding the marshmallows just at the end allows them to become soft and gooey, creating that signature Rocky Road texture.
