‘Tis the season for rocky road!
And I mean rocky road with ALL the trimmings. Creamy milk and dark chocolate loaded with roasted macadamias, crispy pistachios, chewy cranberries, mini marshmallows, white chocolate chunks AND chocolate covered Turkish delight.
It’s the rocky road of ALL ROCKY ROADS.
And since Christmas is less than 3 weeks away, I thought it was time for a special batch of Christmas Rocky Road.
So I’ve taken the best flavours of Christmas and covered them in chocolate. The result? A chewy, crunchy rocky road HEAVEN.
What I love most is this Easy Christmas Rocky Road comes together in a snap. It is completely no bake, making it perfect for Christmas gifts.
I just love the pop of colour that you get from the Turkish Delight. Not to mention the salty crunch from the macadamias and the creaminess of the white chocolate. Honestly, I could NOT stop eating this rocky road.
Packed with all the good things in life, it is my new favourite treat. Trust me, your friends and family will LOVE getting their own batch of rocky road for Christmas.
I’m still in denial that it’s December already and Christmas is right around the corner. But at the same time, I’m looking forward to welcoming in the new year.
I’ve been testing a few Christmas recipes this week, including homemade marshmallows. Have you ever tried making them at home? They sure do make a sticky mess!
But for now, let’s indulge in rocky road goodness.
