Sometimes I get an overwhelming need...

...for 'stuff' of the sweet variety.

Let me show you what saved my sanity last night -


Ohhhh yeahhhh.

The mister made me dinner like he has been doing pretty much every night lately, and it was delicious. We had lobster with melted butter, and tomato salad. That all sounds pretty nice, right? Well it was! The problem arose when I got comfy on the couch after dinner to watch the survivor finale, as that was when I got that overwhelming need for rocky road. Let me first mention that I've never made rocky road before, but I assumed it was easy and was non-negotiable anyway. So I set off googling like crazy to find the easiest, and quickest, rocky road recipe. It was a huge success, in my humble opinion, because it was easy and just what I wanted. I thought that the nicest thing that I could do for you today was to share the recipe -

First, here is my disclaimer: I only *somewhat* followed the ingredients. As far as I was concerned, they were clearly suggestions! (See below for my 'adjustments')
