Quick and Easy Rocky Road Recipe

If you're anything like me you're rushing around a bit to get all your Christmas baking and shopping done. Isn't it such fun?!  Sigh...
In actuality, I LOVE every single bit of it. This past weekend all my available sisters, nieces, sister-in-law, etc.. got together at my Mum's house and we did our Holiday baking day together. There is something very special about these days. We take every single day together as the gift that it is. 
Okay, Onto the Recipe! This is one I make ahead and bring to share with my Mum and my Sisters on our baking day.
Rocky Road! I love it and honestly, this recipe couldn't be easier! 
I just love the combination of roasted nuts. I make it with 3 different kinds, you can make it with whichever are your favorite, total nuts 2 cups.
