Forget everything you know about a Rocky Road recipe. Well, maybe just the coconut. We’re taking rocky road to the next level of deliciousness. Warning: you’re going to have to fight the kids for a piece of this creation.
This is NOT your average rocky road. Just sayin’.
This most definitely isn’t like your mum’s rocky road recipe. Nup, we’re starting our own rocky road tradition. It’s colourful, it’s soft yet crunchy but above all else, it’s AMAZING!
Next Level Rocky Road Recipe
Serves 12 – 20 depending on how you cut it!
- 290g dark chocolate melts
- 290g milk chocolate melts
- 1 cup caramel (or plain) popcorn
- 3 chocolate chip biscuits, broken into small pieces
- 190g raspberry frogs
- 70g marshmallows
To decorate (any and all of your favourites, but here’s what we used):
- Licorice allsorts
- Curly Wurly chocolate bar, chopped
- Caramel (or plain) popcorn
- Chocolate balls
- Skittles or M&Ms
- 100s and 1000s
1. Prepare a square 20x20cm cake tin by lining it with greaseproof paper. Make sure there’s a little overhang up the sides so you have ‘handles’ to help pull it out!
2. Place half of the dark chocolate and half of the milk chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for one minute, stirring halfway through with a metal spoon. Continue to heat and stir until smooth and silky.
3. Have your mix-ins ready to go! Combine the popcorn, raspberry frogs, marshmallows and broken biscuits. Mix together with melted chocolate until they’re all covered.
4. Spread the mixture over the base of the cake tin. Press firmly to compact it, as a result making it a little flat, pushing it out to the corners.
5. Wash and dry the chocolate bowl. Add the remaining dark and milk chocolate and melt on HIGH for one minute. Stir halfway through and continue to heat and stir until smooth and silky. Pour the melted chocolate over the rocky road base, spreading it over with a silicone spatula, filling in any gaps. Give it the chocolate top a quick sprinkle with 100s and 1000s.
7. Quickly add your decorating lollies. You can never have too many licorice allsorts, marshmallows, popcorn or chocolate balls! After that, put in the fridge to set completely.
8. To serve, use a hot, dry knife to make neat squares. YUM!
More sweet chocolate laden treats!
