Rocky road is a super straightforward treat to pull together. This version is definitely one with flavours directed more at an adult audience. A little piece with post-dinner coffee is what I’m envisioning. But you could of course mix up the crunchy components to make it more child-friendly. That’s what’s great about rocky road – so long as you have a mixture of textures, it doesn’t really matter what biscuits/ sweets you put in there. And it is SO quick to make. Why not try chunks of candy cane for younger recipients? Or even meringue! Go on – get creative!!
1/2 cup whole hazelnuts
6 ginger biscuits
10 amaretti biscuits
10 chunks of fudge
300g dark chocolate
50g white chocolate
festive decor (edible glitter/ stars/ silver balls)
1/ Chop the the fudge, marshmallows, ameretti biscuits, and ginger biscuits into bitesize chunks, and place in a medium bowl.
2/ Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave in 10 second bursts, stirring each time.
3/ Fold the melted chocolate into the biscuit mix, ensuring that each piece is coated.
4/ Pour the chocolatey mixture into a lined baking tray, creating an even layer.
5/ Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, pop into a piping bag or sandwich bag, and drizzle on top. Sprinkle with edible festive decor of your choice.
6/ Place in fridge for at least 30 mins to set, then remove from tin and break into pieces.
