No time to make a fancy dessert? This Rocky Road Cak bakes in your microwave oven in about 20 minutes.

This recipe is from Baker's Chocolate.

Rocky Road Cake 2 eggs

3 1/2 cups non-dairy whipped topping, thawed

30 chocolate wafers, crushed into crumbs (1 1/2 cups)

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

1/4 cup chopped nuts

Beat eggs in a large bowl with a fork. Fold in whipped topping, chocolate wafer crumbs and three-quarter cup of the chocolate chips, until just blended.

Batter will be white with specks of chocolate crumbs. Spread into a greased 1 1/2 - or two-quart microwave-safe round dish, at least two inches deep.

Cook on medium (50 percent power) for five minutes. Rotate dish one-half turn and cook on high 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 minutes or until cake starts to pull away from the sides of the dish and is just slightly moist.

Place serving plate on top of dish and invert cake at once. Sprinkle hot cake with remaining one-quarter cup chocolate chips, marshmallows and nuts. Makes six to eight servings.

Note: For microwave ovens below 600 watts, cook on medium for six minutes; rotate dish one-half turn and cook on high 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 minutes.
