White Chocolate Rocky Road



Christmas has been and gone, but I think that White Chocolate Rocky Road is good all year round.  I made the white chocolate rocky road pictured at the top of this post for my Christmas gift boxes.  The great thing about rocky road is that you can put whatever you like in it, in whatever quantities suit you - as long as you have enough chocolate to bind it together, the sky is the limit.

I based my white chocolate rocky road on this recipe, containing toasted pistachios, marshmallows  and cranberries.  However, instead of white marshmallows, I used pink and white baby mallows, and I added a quarter of a cup of red glace cherries.

The verdict?  Delicious and super easy, a treat for any time of year.

I hadn't seen that recipe before, but make my Xmas rocky road the same way - with cranberries, pistachio's and pink marshmallows, although I prefer dark choc. I made a big batch this year, hoping for leftovers - but no luck, again.
Have a very happy and safe new year!

I usually make rocky road every year because it is a favorite of my brother-in-laws, but I didn't make it this year. I want to try this recipe of yours. It looks so pretty and festive.
