Rocky Ledge Bars
Martha Stewart’s Rocky Ledge Bars, or Chocolate Chip Cookies on steroids as I like to call them, are jammed packed with three kinds of chocolate chips, butterscotch, marshmallows and caramels. The only thing missing is nuts.
With all those goodies baked inside I would like to say they were fantastic, but I thought they were just okay. The butterscotch was a little overpowering (I'm not a big fan of butterscotch), and all the other tastes merged into one big blur of sweetness.
Here are the players: semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate & butterscotch chips, mini marshmallows, & caramels...
The batter all mixed up and going into the pan.
Just added the topping. Yummm, it sure does look good.
The finished product.
I baked them just a little too long (as usual). When I tested with a tooth pick the center was still damp so I baked it another few minutes. In hindsight I should have taken it out at the prescribed time. When the bars cooled they were a little hard.
So in the final analysis they were a nice treat, but nothing to rave about. Butterscotch with the dominate flavor, but if you are a fan of butterscotch you might just love these bars.
