Rocky Road Candy
by Beverly Hicks Burch
This is another one of those recipes I found in a little “cookbook” I sent off for from a food distributor. This one just happened to be Nestle.
I use to make fudge for the holidays, but one year I was looking for something different and found it in this little pamphlet, Nestle Toll House Recipe Collection. I did a little Bev-izing…and it’s been an instant hit every since.
I’ve passed this recipe on to many friends, family and acquaintances. I can’t help but think about my sweet little neighbor, Herman Lovelady that lived next door to me for years. He became like a grandfather to me. One year I made a batch of this at Christmas and sent it down to him and Mrs. Lovelady. He enjoyed it so much!
Not too long afterwards he called me one day…
“Little Bev”, he said.
“Yes, Mr. Lovelady, how can I help you?”
“I’m headed to the store and I want to buy the makings for that candy and I was wondering if you’d teach me how to make it.”
Well, of course you know I did! And, Rocky Road became Mr. Lovelady’s Turkish Delight…
