Ah oh, Christmas is almost around the corner and it’s time to get edible Christmas goodie gifts ready!
Get started with this yummy – easy to make Rocky Road :).
I made a big slab of this yumminess yesterday.
Cut them into squares and wrapped in cellophane to give as gifts.
250g marshmallows cut in half ( I used kitchen scissors )
1/2 cup lightly toasted pistachios, roughly chopped
1/2 cup lightly toasted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup dry cranberries
2 ( 55g each ) chocolate coated bars of Turkish delight cut into bite size squares
1 cup butter cookies or any other cookies of your choice roughly chopped into bite size pieces
2 ( 200g each ) good quality dark chocolate bars
2 tsp peanut or canola oil
Extra chopped pistachios for topping ( optional )
Prepare a lined with a cling film tray or any square or rectangular dish at about 5 cm dip.
Break chocolate into a small pieces, place into a heat proof bowl, add oil and melt over a double boiler or in a microwave. If melting in a microwave stir every 30 seconds to avoid over drying.
In a very large mixing bowl mix all dry ingredients together.
Pour melted chocolate over the dry ingredients mixing spontaneously till all covered in chocolate. Move the mixture into the prepared tray. Spread evenly gently pressing into place. Sprinkle the top with extra chopped pistachios and refrigerate for 2 hours or till set. Enjoy with coffee, tea or just by itself as a naughty snack 🙂 xx
The little fingers photobombing was completely unexpected, but it was so cute that I decided to use this picture here. My little cheeky assistant is always there with me 🙂
Line your tray with cling film to make it easy to remove once Rocky Road is set
Perfect edible Christmas gift!
