Ultimate Rocky Road Recipe – Pure Evil

Rocky Road 10 Dec

This is nutty, marshmallowy chocolate gluttony.  

I’m sharing this due to repeated requests, but please, for your own safety only make this to share with guests. Otherwise you’ll find yourself sneaking yet another piece till all you have left is rocky-road-textured thighs and an enormous chocolate-smeared grin.

The Ultimate Rocky Road

50g whole blanched almonds

75g shelled pistachios

250g rosewater Turkish delight, chopped*

200g marshmallows

40g dried cherries or dried sweetened cranberries

450g dark or milk chocolate, melted

Toast nuts on foil-lined tray in a preheated 200C oven for 5-8 minutes, until golden. Grease and line a loaf tin (8cm x 26cm).  Combine nuts, Turkish Delight, marshmallows and cherries/cranberries in a bowl. Spoon 1/3 of mixture into prepared tin, distributing different ingredients evenly. Pour 1/3 of chocolate over, then add further mixture, chocolate, etc until all used up with chocolate binding it all together. 

Refrigerate until set then cut into chunks. Store refrigerated in airtight container. 

*Fry’s Turkish delight in 50g packs coated in chocolate is suitable – it’s easier to chop up than plain Turkish delight which sticks to the knife like a barnacle on a boat.
