Rocky Road- It's one of the sweetest treats to make, and definitely the easiest. It's also the perfect way to rid yourself of the leftover chocolate you have accumulated over the holiday season (although some may ask why you would want to even do this).
Think of it this way- making and serving a lovely Rocky Road is much more impressive and creative than simply putting the chocolate into a bowl and telling your guests to help themselves. It looks yummy, it tastes yummy, and it looks as though you have made an effort, even if there's really not much involved in the cooking process. Even better, you can put whatever you want into this recipe. Make your own chocolately concoction and see how you go...
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes chilling in fridge
Makes: Approximately 20 servings, depending on the size of slices cut
Line a slice tin with baking paper. I used a 20 x 20cm tin- if you want your Rocky Road to be thicker, use a smaller tin (as mine is spread quite thinly in comparison to some Rocky Road recipes I've seen).
Chop the Turkish Delight bars into small pieces.
Chop the Snickers bars into small pieces.
Place the Turkish Delight, Snickers, Rice Bubbles, M&M Minis and marshmallows into a medium sized mixing bowl. Set aside.
Break up the chocolate block into smaller pieces and place in a heat-proof bowl. Put the bowl in the microwave for approximately 2 minutes on high, stopping to stir occasionally. When the chocolate has all melted and has a smooth consistency, remove from the microwave.
Pour the melted chocolate over the mixture in the other bowl, and stir thoroughly until the entire mixture is coated in melted chocolate.
Spoon the mixture into the previously prepared slice tin, making sure it is evenly distributed across the tin's width. Refrigerate the Rocky Road for 30 minutes.
Remove the Rocky Road from the fridge and cut into squares to serve.
This Rocky Road recipe is one of the most adaptable there is. Feel free to add or omit anything that tickles your fancy.
