Best Rocky Road Ever

(adapted from the Destitute Gourmet Recipe in Parenting Magazine)

  • 1 x 375g packet of chocolate melts or buttons
  • 2 Tablespoons of Kremelta (vegetable shortening)
  • 1 1/2 cups of unsalted nuts, coarsely chopped*
  • 180g marshmallows cut in chunks
  • 1/3 cup glace cherries, halved
  • 1/2 cup rice bubbles (rice krispies)
  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1/2 packet of white chocolate buttons, melted, to decorate (optional)
* approx 3 x small 70g packets of nuts; I used one each of sliced almonds, cashews and hazelnuts

Melt the chocolate bits and Kremelta in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of boiling water; stir frequently until chocolate becomes liquid

Pour into a bowl of the cherries and nuts; add rice bubbles and coconut; lastly add the marshmallows.

Spread into a roasting pan lined with baking paper. Refrigerate until completely set; then drizzle white chocolate over the top if you like. (Allow white chocolate to set); cut roughly into squares.

This is the yummiest rocky road I've ever had (and so easy to make!) I add the rice bubbles and coconut to offset the sweetness which makes it extra-delicious.

Wrapped up in cellophane it makes a cute thankyou gift... and if you use Mr Mallow gluten free Marshmallows... bonus it's even gluten free!
