Melissa's rocky road recipe
- 500g good quality dark chocolate
- 100g marshmallows
- 100g red glace cherries
- 1 cup coconut
- ½ cup pistachios
- ½ cup peanuts
Melt chocolate in the microwave at medium heat. Cook for 2 minutes, stir, then another 2 minutes or until melted. Line a slice tray (16 x 26 x 3 cm) with baking paper, leaving 2 cm hanging over each end.
Use scissors to cut marshmallows in half, cut cherries in half. Combine marshmallows, cherries, coconut, pistachios and peanuts in a large bowl. Pour in melted chocolate and mix well to combine.
Spoon into prepared tray and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When set, lift rocky road onto a chopping board and cut into 24 or 30 pieces (depending on Dad’s sweet tooth)
- This is a great recipe for kids to make as a gift. Put in a small tin or cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon.
