Chocolate Rocky Road


A decadent chocolate treat, perfect to make for the Easter Break!!

What you need:

300g dark chocolate (I used 1 1/2 blocks of Whittakers dark chocolate)

1/3 cup desiccated coconut

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup roasted peanuts 

1 1/2 cups of marshmallows, cut in halves (make sure they are gluten free if avoiding gluten)

A good pinch of salt


To do:

Line a baking tray with baking paper

Half fill a saucepan with boiling water

Place a heatproof bowl on top of the water, taking care that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water

Break up chocolate into the bowl, continue to stir until completely melted

Add coconut, cranberries, peanuts and salt and combine well

Add marshmallows and mix together completely so they are all covered by the chocolate 

Pour into baking tray to your desired thickness

Place in the fridge for 2-4 hours to set before cutting and eating

Rocky Road

This fudgy goodness is actually addictive…serious self-control had to be practiced by my house mate and me as we wanted to dig into it before it had set properly (best to leave it in the fridge overnight before cutting).  

Try mixing it up with your favourite nuts and dried fruit.

What you need:

½ cup coconut oil (melted)

½ cup raw cacao powder

½ cup rice malt syrup 

2 Tbsp almond butter 

Pinch of salt

¼ cup macadamia nuts (+ a little extra)

¼ cup roasted hazelnuts (+ a little extra)

¼ cup coconut chips (+ a little extra)

¼ cup pumpkin seeds (+ a little extra)

3 Tbsp goji berries*

What to do:

In a saucepan combine coconut oil, rice malt syrup and cacao powder and stir well over a medium heat 

Mix in almond butter

Remove from heat and stir through remaining ingredients

Pour into a lined baking tray and sprinkle with extra ingredients (to make the top colourful)

Place in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 3 hours)

Cut and enjoy! S x
