Christmas rocky road

Technically, the rocky road will last for two weeks stored in an airtight container, but realistically it won’t last that long – it’s simply too irresistible!

Homemade rocky road makes a great gift for family and friends – or that elusive end of year teacher gift! Make it a beautiful, unique gift by first wrapping in baking paper, then inserting into a “fill your own” Christmas bon bon. This Christmas rocky road makes a much better surprise than the usual paper hat and corny joke!




Line the base and sides of a 20cm x 30cm slice pan.


Stir chocolate and macadamia oil in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until smooth (don’t let water touch base of bowl). Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.


Combine marshmallow, coconut, biscuits, cherries, Raffaellos and macadamias in a large bowl, reserving a few of each for decorating the top. Working quickly, stir in white chocolate mixture and spread into prepared pan. Gently push down mixture to flatten the surface slightly. Decorate top with the remaining mix-ins.


Refrigerate until set.

It’s easier to cut rocky road at room temperature rather than straight from the fridge.
