Rocky Road

This really isn't a cooking blog, but in my defence, making Rocky Road is so simple that it's difficult to consider it cooking - more melting and mixing, with a teency bit of chopping for good measure.  Rocky Road is a very Australian treat and it makes a lovely home-made gift for chocolate lovers.    This is my own recipe, but feel free to alter the amount of ingredients if, for example, you wanted to omit the nuts and add more marshmallow or cherries.  The quantites given will only make about four small gift bags and I recommend doubling the mixture, because if you're anything like me, there may be quite a lot of taste testing along the way, and it may not leave enough left over to actually give out as gifts!


2 x 200g blocks of chocolate-One milk and one dark.
Half a cup of Glace Cherries - chopped.
Half a cup of unsalted peanuts - chopped.
One cup of mini marshmallows.
Half a cup of Desiccated Coconut.


Melt chocolate in the microwave and add to dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix together gently and pour out onto to silicone mat to set.  You can pop it in the fridge to set the mix, which is recommended in the height of the Australian Summer!
When set, chop into chunks and gift wrap. 

Happy Cooking
