Rocky Ledge Bars - #10DaysofTailgate


When your having a tailgating party, there is never a shortage of treats.  Oh, there is the burgers, brats, chili and dip but you always have to have plenty of treats. 

These guys have everything in them.  I was afraid there was so much that they wouldn't hold together.  I don't think anything else would have fit. Well, they held together and they tasted awesome.  Super sweet but that's the point of treats, right?


Don't forget to enter the #10DaysofTailgate Giveaway.  We're giving away a whole bunch of prizes!  Mr. BBQ is giving away a Nonstick Grilling Skillet with Removeable Handle! Quirk Books is giving away 3 cookbooks!  Gourmet Garden is giving away a cooker of herbs!  And much more!!





Rocky Ledge Bars Recipe
Adapted from Two Peas & Their Pod


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed dark-brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup butterscotch chips
18 soft caramel-candy cubes, cut in quarters

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line pan with parchment paper, allowing a 2-inch overhang on the longer sides. Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Set the pan aside.
2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. With electric mixer, mix butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract, mix until smooth.
3. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in half of each of the marshmallows, chocolates, butterscotch chips, and caramels.
4. Spread batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining marshmallows, chocolates, butterscotch chips, and caramels on top.
5. Bake until top is golden brown and not too jiggly in the center (I know, really scientific, right?), about 35 - 38 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Lift out of pan, and transfer to a baking sheet. Refrigerate until set, at least 30 minutes.
6. Remove parchment, and cut into about triangles or squares.

  6. Funny because at the tailgating parties I have gone to, sweets seem to always be in short supply. Not that people don't want them but I think men tend to think only of meat haha.
