It’s a Rocky Road, and we’ll take it!
It’s a Rocky Road, and we’ll take it!

We like to think our team carry themselves with professionalism and kindness at all times, but when our Respiratory Health Educator Yvonne announces there is a fresh batch of her famous Rocky Road in the office, it’s a mad scramble to the kitchen and tears for those who miss out.

After more than 20 years of nurturing our souls and waistlines, Yvonne will be retiring in March this year. As her leaving gift, she has decided to share the top-secret recipe not only with us, but also with you!

Thank you, Yvonne, our entire team appreciates your generosity! You will be making many tastebuds and bellies happy, and we will all miss you more than you know! 

INGREDIENTS

350gm Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate OR 350gm Crunchy Dairy Milk Chocolate

30gms Copha

160gm bag Allen’s Marshmallows (cut in half)

½ cup crushed nuts (personal choice of type of nuts)

½ cup Shredded coconut

1pkt Allan’s Ripe Raspberries or any other lolly of choice (cut in half)

Melt the chocolate and copha together (either in microwave or cooktop)  If microwaving, do in 30sec increments otherwise the chocolate may burn.

Then mix through remaining ingredients.

Pour into either a flat container or into a Tupperware Jel-Ring if you want something fancy.

Sprinkle with more shredded coconut if you choose.

Place in the fridge until set.

Cut into chunks and ENJOY!!!

Modifications:

  • Chop Maltesers in half and mix through.             
  • Add Turkish delight or similar
  • Add M&M’s
  • Drizzle melted white chocolate over the top before placing in the fridge.
  • In a Jel-ring or Silicone Cake mould do a layer of Milk Chocolate Rocky Road, topped with a White chocolate Rocky Road and finish with a Dark Chocolate Rocky Road – impressive looking 3 layer Rocky Road!!!!!

ROCKY ROAD CHRISTMAS TREE

Make a cone shaped mould by stapling cardboard together in a cone shape or a kids party hat, line it with glad wrap.   Make Rocky Road and pour it into the mould.  Secure the mould by standing it in a class or a jug then place in the fridge to set.

Once set and removed from the cone, even out the base with a knife if needed.  Randomly pipe or pour white chocolate on the top of the tree to resemble snow.
