Double Chocolate Rocky Road Cookie Bars:

These Double Chocolate Rocky Road Cookie Bars almost taste like nanaimo bars but not as sweet. Don’t get me wrong – these are still plenty sweet – but not like the classic Canadian dessert nanaimo bars. I could eat an entire pan of these! In the recipe I made, I left out the pecans because of a nut allergy in the family.
