Rocky Road

Usually, Rocky Road is a flavor of ice cream, but this recipe is for a type of cookie bar. It’s made with Rice Krispies, which are the universal base for so many delicious treats. This seems a bit like a variation of the Rice Krispie treat. I’m uncertain about the addition

Fruit Cocktail Cake (Marilyn Clark)

I’m not really sure what this one would be like. Fruit cocktail is good. Cake is good. But together?
