Rocky Road


This recipe only ever gets made at Christmas time in our place. There is nothing healthy about it but boy does it taste great. You can change and amend the ingredients but keep the overall quantity of dry ingredients the same. Some people put dried fruit in their Rocky Road. Others use preserved ginger or even small pieces of shortbread biscuits.

It's a personal choice but the ingredients below are what we like using.

375 gm block of milk chocolate, broken into cubes
75 gm copha
100 gm mini marshmallows
2/3 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup rice bubbles
1/2 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts, chopped roughly
1/3 cup glace cherries, chopped roughly



Place the chocolate and copha in a large glass bowl and microwave at 50% power for 5 - 6 minutes, stirring every minute until the two ingredients are just smooth and combined.

Whilst the ingredients are melting in the microwave, mix the other ingredients together in a large bowl.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and pour into a greased, paper lined slice tin. Refrigerate for an hour.

When cold cut into small pieces.

Makes about 40 pieces



You can use dark chocolate if you like or a combination of both chocolates.
If you haven't got mini marshmallows the bigger variety will do. Just chop them up with kitchen scissors.
