Last Christmas, I changed a rocky road recipe a bit to make it more Christmassy – but there’s no reason you can’t eat it any other time of the year 🙂 And if you make and eat it in winter, there’s less of an issue with melting, too!

Simple enough for kids to make, too.

Christmas rocky road

160g dark chocolate
100g mini marshmallows
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup nuts (I like cashews but peanuts give a stronger flavour)
1/4 cup green smarties, crushed into pieces

Melt the chocolate.

Stir in the marshmallows, nuts and cranberries.

Pour into a lined pan.

Sprinkle crushed smarties on top.

Put in fridge to set.

Cut or break into pieces and enjoy!

Note adding smarties to the melted chocolate tastes ok but the smarties melt a bit so you don’t get as good result visually.
