Rocky Road Cups

Calling all rocky road fans!

It doesn’t get better than that classic combination of chocolate, marshmallow and almonds. And though you typically find rocky road served up in the form of ice cream, I’m going to bet that you will love this twist on another traditional treat — the peanut butter cup!

Layers of chocolate and almond butter filling are capped off by a sprinkling of chopped almonds, mini marshmallows and flaky sea salt.

These cups are the perfect marriage of salty-sweet, creamy-crunchy—no spoon required!
