Rocky Road Bars (No Bake)

This recipe will work fine with any generic frosting mix. I changed the recipe to use a graham cracker crust so there's no baking needed.

* 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
* 1/4 cup butter, melted
* 1/3 cup water
* 1/4 cup butter
* 15 oz. pkg.DRY milk chocolate frosting mix
* 1 cup miniature marshmallows
* 1/2 cup chopped pecans
* 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Combine graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup melted butter in a small bowl. Press into bottom of a 9" square pan. Set aside while preparing filling.

In heavy saucepan, combine 1/4 cup butter and water and heat to boiling.

Add the dry frosting mix (Jiffy brand is best - be sure the boxes add up to about 15 ounces) and blend well. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 4 minutes. Stir in marshmallows, pecans, and chocolate chips and spoon onto graham cracker crust. Cool completely and cut into pieces to serve. If you can't find the dry frosting mix, you can make this with the canned, or tub frosting. Omit the water, 1/4 cup butter, and the dry frosting mix. Melt a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add a 16 ounce tub of prepared milk chocolate frosting and beat until smooth. Fold in marshmallows, pecans, and chococolate chips and spread over graham cracker crust; let cool completely and cut into pieces. 25 bars
