Christmas Recipe


Well I was tagged in this Christmas recipe meme by goldy, and it was good timing because I had just spent my last day of holidays making Christmas rocky road for my work colleagues.

Not an original recipe, I found it on Not Quite Nigella (a great food blog - just incase you're living under a rock!)

What makes this rocky road good? Turkish Delight. And macadamias. Together in WHITE CHOCOLATE. Yeah baby.


So here's the recipe:

Christmas Wonderland Rocky Road

Makes 20 pieces

  • 500g white chocolate (or milk or dark if you like)
  • 175g honey coated macadamias (if not available, just substitute this quantity with regular macadamias)
  • 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 250g Turkish Delight cut into thirds or quarters depending on size
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries
1. Line a 21×21cms square cake tin with foil.
2. Melt chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave in a large bowl until melted.
3. Stir in the rest of the ingredients until combined and spoon into foil lined tin.
4. Refrigerate until firm and when set cut into slices using a large, sharp knife.
Yum yum
