What’s Cooking? … Rocky Road!

Mmmmm.  Rocky Road.  I love it.  It’s delicious, pretty and in terms of sweets, maybe not that bad.  Looks so chocolatey but well expanded with fruit, nuts and marshmallows.  If you are looking for a quick weekend treat.  No baking involved.  This may be it.

This is how I do it.

Ingredients

200 g milk chocolate
200 g dark chocolate
3/4 cup raw shelled peanuts
3/4 cup raw almonds
400 g pink and white marshmallows
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped dried Australian apricots
Method
Line a 20cm x 30cm pan with baking paper.  Put the peanuts and almonds in a heavy based pan and roast on low heat for a few minutes until nuts are lightly toasted.  Do not walk away.  They cook quickly!
Remove from heat  Allow to cool.  Add broken chocolate into a microwave proof bowl.
Microwave on high for 1 minute 15 seconds.  Remove from microwave.  Stir until smooth.
Add nuts, fruit and marshmallows to chocolate and stir until all well-distributed.

 

Using a spatula, decant mixture evenly into the lined tray. Allow to set.  Cut into serving size pieces,
