  • The recipe includes making and chocolate melting time.  It does not include the time needed for the chocolate to set before you cut up the rocky road.
  • Chocolate candy such as M&Ms and Smarties can color fade if you leave them in the fridge for too long!  If it's too hot to set on the bench only put it in the fridge for one hour, then remove it.  
  • If worst comes to worst and your candy Does fade, I have successfully repainted the color with food coloring and a clean, fine paintbrush.
