Ingredients:  
1 lb milk chocolate
1 1/2 C pecan halves or large pieces (6 ounces)
12 marshmallows, quartered (about 1 1/4 cups; see Note)

Directions:
Directions:
Cut or break chocolate into coarse pieces; place in top of double-boiler over warm water on low heat. (Milk chocolate must be melted very slowly and should never get really hot.) Cover until partially melted. Uncover and stir until completely melted and smooth.

Spread a thin layer (about half) in foil-lined 8-inch square pan. Sprinkle with half the pecans; place marshmallows evenly all over. Stir remaining chocolate; drizzle over top (does not cover completely but holds nuts and marshmallows in place). Top with remaining nuts.

Refrigerate until firm. Remove from pan; peel off foil. Cut in 16 squares; wrap each square in plastic wrap or waxed paper. (Or wrap whole block securely in plastic or foil; cut in squares before serving.)

Store in refrigerator to avoid discoloring (will keep months). If desired, remove from refrigerator awhile before serving so chocolate is not too brittle.

Note: 1-2/3 cups miniature marshmallows may be substituted for cut-up regular marshmallows, but Rocky Road connoisseurs like larger pieces, even whole or halved large marshmallows.
