Why You’re Going To Love Homemade Rocky Road

What You Need

This simple rocky road recipe requires just 5 ingredients:

  • white chocolate – I recommend using a good quality chocolate (such as Cadbury, Lindt, Whittakers, Nestle or Hersheys) for this recipe. As the white chocolate is the main ingredient, it makes ALL the difference to the overall taste if you use a good quality brand.
  • marshmallows – I like to use regular sized marshmallows. The ones I use are Pascall brand (popular in Australia) and come in white and pink. See my tips below for cutting up marshmallows without any stickiness! Alternatively, you can use mini marshmallows if you prefer.
  • Turkish delight – the Turkish delight that is needed for this recipe is the traditional variety (the variety that is covered in icing sugar – not coated in chocolate). You can buy boxes of Turkish delight from the supermarket in the lead up to Christmas. I often find that they will put it on the ends of the aisles or on a Christmas baking stand. If you can’t find it, I suggest asking an employee of the supermarket as they can usually point you in the right direction.
  • pistachios – choose roasted and unsalted pistachios.
  • coconut – I recommend using desiccated coconut in this recipe. If you prefer, you can omit the coconut.

If you can’t find classic Turkish Delight, you can always substitute it for raspberry lollies or dried cranberries… but Turkish Delight really is worth the search!
