Rocky road cake is a delectable ultimate chocolate cake with all the flavors of the Rocky Road candy bar; marshmallows and loads of chocolate!
I’ve been making this chocolaty-chocolate cake for about five years now, but only for special occasions.
My son is the one who requested a chocolate cake topped with Rocky Road candy bars for his birthday one year and again this year, so this has become his cake.
After experimenting with different chocolate cake recipes over the years, I now have the most flavorful, moist cake that has become my ‘go to’ recipe for chocolate cakes and cupcakes that I’m happy to share!
This drool worthy cake is delicious, decadent, and divine!
There is a a hint of cinnamon adding to the rich chocolate flavor which really adds a nice taste to the cake.
Between the layers there is chocolate frosting and just a bit of marshmallow fluff, and then we top this gorgeous baby with ganache and chopped pieces of Rocky Road Candy bars.
Hello, little bites of heaven!
Each bite is very much worth every calorie, so run an extra mile or skip the glass of wine.
Wait, scratch that. Don’t skip the wine because chocolate and wine is an amazing combination.
