This recipe comes with a warning: if you have no sense of self-discipline (like me) then I suggest you run as far away from this as possible. Seriously.
If you think you’re safe because you’ve never been a fan of Rocky Road, then let me tell you that this will convert any Rocky Road hater. Believe me.
I know, I know. I’m building a pretty tall pedestal for this recipe. But it tastes fantastic and any time I have served it someone has asked me for the recipe. See for yourself.
Recipe source: my friend Nicole
2 x 200g blocks of Cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate, broken into pieces
250g bag Pascall’s pink & white marshmallows, cut into halves
4 x Fry’s turkish delight bars, chopped into peanut-sized pieces
1/2 to 1/3 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
Lightly grease a small slice tray and line with baking paper. Ensure all ingredients are prepared – chopped, measured etc. because once the chocolate has melted you will have to work quickly.
Melt chocolate in a glass or metal bowl over simmering water. Ensure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl to prevent chocolate from burning. Stir chocolate occasionally until all the chocolate pieces have melted and the chocolate is smooth.
Remove saucepan from heat but keep bowl about hot water in saucepan. This will prevent the chocolate from cooling too quickly. Work quickly and add all other ingredients, stirring until everything is covered in chocolate. Transfer mixture to slice tray and refrigerate until firm.
- Quantities of add-in ingredients can be adjusted to suit your taste
- The quality of ingredients you use will affect the final result – I always use Pascall marshmallows
- For a nut-free version you can substitute crispy M&Ms (thanks to Dawn for this tip!)
