With school wrapping up this week for summer, I've got one thing on my mind: ice cream! Kids running down the block after the ice cream truck, standing in line waiting for a cone at Hole in the Wall Custard Shoppe, devouring The Trough at Brown Cow Ice Cream Parlor; all of those just scream "SUMMERTIME!" to me. And wouldn't you know it, one of my favorite ice cream flavors from my childhood has its own day! National Rocky Road Day is June 2. These no-bake Rocky Road bars are the perfect sweet summer treat; all the goodness of ice cream, but without all the mess.
