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.


  1. my coworker is raving about these but it seems like too many flavors at once.

    what do you think works best with pumpkin - white chocolate, butterscotch, milk or dark chocolate?


  2. "To many flavors at once," that was exactly the impression I got of the Rocky Ledge bars.

    And this is just my personal preference, but I love pumpkin cookies with white chocolate and nuts.
