Sweet, rich, crunchy and delicious – this incredibly easy festive treat will put you right into the Christmas spirit!
You NEED these festive and insanely easy Christmas Rocky Road chunks in your life! Melted white chocolate, marshmallows, salted peanuts, pistaschios and cranberries (plus a few Christmas sprinkles) come together to create a bit of Christmas magic.
I am ALL about homemade gifts this (and every!) Christmas. A Christmas gift that’s easy, great value, and shows your friends and family that you care a bit more than the amount it takes to send them a voucher? Yes please!
Plus as the chef you’ll have to sample them of course. To ensure quality control…
I’ve provided a blueprint here for some festive Christmas White Chocolate Rocky Road – but of course, the beauty of this, and any rocky road, is that you can adapt it to the tastes of the lucky person receiving it! More nuts, no nuts, coconut, no coconut… here are a few ideas for you:
- biscuit pieces (amaretti biscuits are especially recommended)
- bashed up crunchie / malteser / bounty – oh heck, clearly no kind of chocolate bar is going to make this any worse!
- coconut flakes
- cherries (I’m a sucker for those terribly fluorescent red ones myself)
- meringue pieces
- raisins (just know I’ll be over here silently judging you)
It’s even really easy to make a split a batch of this to accommodate nut eating and non nut eating friends. Simply make up the rocky road mix without nuts, portion out half into a tin, then add the nuts and let the second half of the mixture set in another tin. Just don’t mix them up!
- 600g white chocolate
- 200g large white marshmallows
- 100g dried cranberries
- 100g shelled pistaschios
- 100g salted peanuts
- Christmas sprinkles
- Start by greasing a large (roughly 11inch by 9inch by 1 inch deep) tin (or you could use a variety of smaller brownie tins) with a little vegetable oil. Next, break up the white chocolate into squares and microwave it in a heat proof bowl at thirty second intervals until it's completely liquid.
- Stir in the marshmallows and the other ingredients (reserving a few of each to sprinkle over the top). Pour out the mixture into your pan, and smooth into the corners. Sprinkle over the final ingredients, plus some Christmas sprinkles, and then pop into the fridge to set.
- After about an hour the rocky road should be completely set, so remove from the tin and cut it into generous squares. Store in an airtight tin for up to ten days.
Save this to Pinterest
and make it later!
I hope you love these!
