Rocky Road Bars

We have many traditions during December, but one that I’m very fond of is the making of Rocky Road. I make a big batch every year and keep it in the fridge for family and friends to nibble on when they come visit. It also happens to be one of the kids favourite Festive treats and they quickly remind me when I need to make another batch.

What I love most about rocky road is that you can add whatever you want to it. You can make it with dark, milk or white chocolate and add any dried fruit, nuts, biscuits and flavourings. With these bars I added Brazil nuts, glace cherries, some almond biscotti I had lying around and mini marshmallows. I often make a version with dried cranberries and pistachios and have made an extra chocolatey version by adding malt chocolate balls to the mix. Anything goes, really.

And because rocky road is so rich, you can cut it into smaller pieces (the ones in these photos are actually a bit too big) and  you can easily get around 20-30 squares out of this batch. But don’t be fooled, it won’t last long. It never does.

    Raphaele, I don’t cook with agave so am not sure if it will work. And yes, any cherries will work great in this.
