Ingredients

  • 500 g milk chocolate or dark chocolate
  • 20 g coconut oil optional (see notes)
  • 200 g marshmallows chopped
  • 20 g (¼ cup) desiccated coconut
  • 110 g raspberry lollies chopped in half (see notes)
  • 75 g (½ cup) peanuts chopped (see notes)

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Line the base and sides of an 20cm x 20cm square baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place the chocolate and coconut oil (optional) into a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl.
    Heat, uncovered, on 50% power, in 30 second bursts, stirring every time with a metal spoon, for 4-5 minutes or until the chocolate and coconut oil melts.
    Remove from the microwave and stir until smooth.
  • Stir through the chopped marshmallows, coconut, raspberry lollies and peanuts.
  • Spread the mixture into the prepared baking tray and place in the fridge for 2 hours or until completely set.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut into slices (if you are having trouble cutting the slice, run your knife under hot water and then dry completely before cutting - the heat will help to cut the slice evenly).

Thermomix Method

  • Place the chocolate and coconut oil (optional) into a clean and dry Thermomix bowl. Melt for 3-4 minutes, 50 degrees, Speed 2 or until melted. 
  • Add the marshmallows, coconut, raspberry lollies and peanuts and mix for 5-10 seconds, Reverse, Speed 3 (using the spatula to help mix), or until completely combined.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Ingredients Info: 
  • Chocolate - I like to use milk chocolate for my classic rocky road recipe. However, you can substitute with white or dark chocolate if you prefer. Choose a high quality chocolate for melting (I like to use CadburyLindt or Nestle). The chocolate is the main ingredient in this recipe, so choosing a good one makes all the difference.
  • Coconut oil - add a little to your chocolate when melting it - this will help with cutting into neat slices.
  • Marshmallows - choose regular sized marshmallows for this recipe and cut in half. I use Pascall brand which is popular here in Australia.
  • Coconut - desiccated coconut is a classic ingredient in chocolate Rocky Road. However, if you don't like coconut, you can omit it entirely.
  • Peanuts - Rocky Road generally contains peanuts, however you can use any type of nuts you like (macadamias, pistachios, cashews etc). If catering for nut allergies, omit the nuts entirely.
  • Raspberry lollies - Allens raspberry lollies have cult status here in Australia, however, you can use any kind of soft jellies you like - or even Turkish delight!
More Recipe Tips: 
  • Slicing - remove the Rocky Road from the fridge at least 30 minutes before slicing - this will help it to stop cracking. Use a large sharp knife to cut the rocky road (or check out my top tips for cutting rocky road here). 
  • Equipment - Rocky Road can be made using a microwave, stove-top or Thermomix. If using a stove-top, melt the chocolate and coconut oil (optional) in a small bowl over a saucepan of boiling water (do not allow the water to enter the chocolate bowl).
  • Storing & Freezing - Rocky Road can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 month or frozen for up to 3 months.
