Christmas for our family revolves around Jesus being born as a baby to save us from our sins, but it also revolves around food.
I make sometimes 10-12 different bars, cookies, and candies to share with others at Christmas time. So far this year, we have only made 5 desserts. I have to make 3 more in the next 2 days!
One of the favorite desserts my Grandma always made was her Rocky Road Candy.
It was my favorite cookie/candy that she made. I decided to make it last week for a ladies devotional I was giving. Imagine my surprise when I saw that this recipe includes raw egg! I have eaten it for 40 years and always been fine; however, I will give the disclaimer that I found on the Allrecipes website for a recipe that includes raw egg:
Please note: this recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs. Important: be sure to use only fresh eggs for this recipe.
I also thought this information about raw eggs was interesting. According to them, you can use frozen pasteurized eggs to avoid using raw eggs if you are worried about it.
Here is the recipe for Rocky Road Candy:
- 1 package chocolate chips
- 1 square unsweetened chocolate
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 eggs
- 1¼ cup confectioners sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 2 cups nuts I use walnuts.
Melt chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate, and butter over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
In a separate bowl, beat eggs until foamy; mix in confectioners sugar, salt, and vanilla. Blend into the chocolate mixture
Stir in marshmallows and nuts.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
Chill until firm.
Store in refrigerator; remove just before serving.
