Why you will love this rocky road
Not only is this Easter Egg Rocky Road no bake, but it’s quick and easy to make. Once you melt your chocolate, you simply mix through a handful of roasted peanuts, mini marshmallows and mini Easter Eggs.
And voila! A chunky chocolate slice that’s chewy, crunchy and seriously hard to resist. You can make it ahead of time for easy entertaining or give it away as Easter gifts.
Your friends and family will love it – and they don’t have to know how secretly easy it is to make. We can keep that between you and me.
- Chocolate: You can use whatever chocolate you prefer for this recipe. I recommend a good quality dark chocolate, but milk chocolate or even white chocolate work just as well. Sometimes I like to use half dark and half milk chocolate. Try using a block of chocolate, rather than chocolate melts or chocolate chips.
- Peanuts: I recommend using roasted and salted peanuts for maximum crunch and flavour. However, you can really use whatever nuts you prefer. Macadamias, almonds or cashews would also be lovely. If you don’t want to use nuts, you can leave them out. I would just throw in a few extra marshmallows and/or Easter eggs.
- Marshmallows: Mini marshmallows work nicely in this recipe, but you can use large marshmallows if you like.
- Easter eggs: Any of your favourite mini Easter eggs will work. I’ve made this recipe using Turkish Delight, caramel, Oreo, Crunchie, white chocolate or just plain mini eggs. And it’s always good.
