    Rocky Road Meringues feature a vanilla-scented meringue shell, filled with chocolate ganache and topped with a sprinkling of toasted nuts. The best part of this candy is the interplay of textures: the outer layer of meringue stays crisp, while the inner part softens into the rich chocolate filling, and the nuts on top add a wonderful crunch.
