I usually like to dabble in some Christmas baking and give my girls’ teachers something baked with love (and gratitude!). Last year I made these white chocolate and cranberry cookies and they were yum. The year before I made Christmas Rocky Road, which was also a hit. I decided to make Rocky Road again this year but this time I used a special ingredient, Clinkers. My festive Rocky Road is inspired by Lucy’s delicious recipe from Bake Play Smile. I had to go to a couple of shops to hunt down the clinkers but I was rapt to find some in festive pink and green. I basically used Lucy’s recipe but I wanted to add some extra crunch so I chopped up a crunchie bar as well. In my mind honeycomb is what really makes a good rocky road. I also increased the amount of chocolate accordingly. And the best thing about this recipe aside from the taste? It’s quick and easy to make. And at this time of year if it’s not quick and easy then I am not interested….
Who doesn’t love Rocky Road?! It’s a classic and impossible to stop at one piece. Everyone has their own version of Rocky Road and this is mine. The green M&Ms and raspberries give it festive colours and the addition of crunchie gives it…well…crunch! I made a massive batch of this to give away as gifts for friends and kinder/childcare staff. It is a winner!
The recipe below is for a kid-friendly version and so I’ve omitted nuts.
