Goodies for Teachers

What's a teacher's best friend?



It's Friday! When I taught school, each grade level took turns providing goodies for the staff. We usually had a theme, like a Mexican Fiesta or a spring salad bar. Many times it was just pot luck.

Here's a recipe for Chocolate Rocky Road Candy. It will complement any buffet in the teacher's lounge

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/3 cup cashews
2 cups mini pretzels
1/2 bag colored miniature marshmallows

Melt chocolate slowly in a double boiler. Blend remaining ingredients into melted chocolate, then pour onto waxed paper. Roll into a log. Chill two hours, then slice into 1/2-inch pieces.

Arrange on a platter
