Betty Crocker's Rocky Road Bars

On a whim I purchased a Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix to find out that it doesn't come with the frosting as many other pre-packed cake mixes do.  Great what do I do with a slab of cake? 

Not to be disappointed for long, I was intrigued by the Rocky Road Bars the rear of the pack advertised.  With curiosity and some drooling I looked it up on the Betty Crocker website.

Here's what happened:

Doesn't it just look yum?

Oh my and was it delicious and gooey and fudgy.

Not complicated to make at all, especially since we are using pre-packed cake mix, here's the recipe with all of 8 ingredients.

Rocky Road Bars

1 Betty Crocker SuperMoist milk chocolate cake mix
110g butter, melted
0.25C water
0.25C brown sugar
1 egg
3C miniature marshmallows
50g small M&Ms
1/3C Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting


Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees celsius.  Line a 20 x 20 cm square baking tray with baking paper.

Combine cake mix, butter, water, brown sugar and egg in a large bowl and stir well.  Pour into pan and spread evenly.  Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle marshmallows and bake a further 15 minutes, then add the M&Ms.

Microwave the frosting for 10 seconds and drizzle on the bars.  Cool for one hour and slice bars into 16 pieces.

As you can see we were very generous with our servings.
