Rocky Road Recipe
The ingredients in this rocky road could easily be varied to suit individual tastes. Turkish delight or dried apricots could replace the glace cherries (dried apricots would be especially good in white chocolate rocky road). Macadamias or toasted silvered almonds would be good substitutes for the crushed peanuts.
When making this rocky road, we layer the ingredients rather than stirring them all together, as we feel this gives the best result.
500g milk, white or dark chocolate (we used 2 x 250g Cadbury Dairy Milk blocks)
90g glace cherries (we used red Winn cherries)
150g marshmallows (we used pink and white Pascall Marshmallows)
45g (4 level tablespoons) crushed peanuts
Line an 11cm x 22cm bar tin or similarly sized container. As a liner, we use a freezer bag that has been slit along the side and base and opened out flat. Aluminium foil would also be suitable.
Chop marshmallows and cherries into quarters.
Melt chocolate over very low heat, stirring occasionally. We don’t use a double boiler, but you could if you are concerned about overheating the chocolate. © exclusivelyfood.com.au
Spread about one third of the melted chocolate over the base of the lined tin.
Top chocolate layer with half the marshmallows, cherries and nuts.
Spread with half the remaining chocolate and top with remaining marshmallows, cherries and nuts.
Spread the rest of the chocolate on top and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or until completely set.
When set, remove rocky road from the tin, peel off plastic or foil, and cut into pieces. We store the rocky road in an airtight container in the refrigerator. © www.exclusivelyfood.com.au
