This is an all american favorite and the recipe goes back years and years. My father used to buy this flavor of icecream when we used to live in HongKong and it used to be really expensive as it used to be imported from America. This icecream has a history….the flavor was created in March 1929 by William Dreyer in Oakland, California when he cut up walnuts and marshmallows with his wife’s sewing scissors and added them to his chocolate ice cream in a manner that reflected his partner Joseph Edy‘s chocolate candy creation incorporating walnuts and marshmallow pieces. Later, the walnuts would be replaced by pieces of toasted almond. This is all thanks to wikipedia! I have created my own rocky road icecream with my own special touch. Its an easy desert specially if you have a party and dont have much time to make desert. If you need the amazing blender i have used in the recipe do contact me. I can have it shipped to you.
