Rocky Road!!!!

When we got invited over to a friends place on sat night for dinner, I decided to bring along some dessert. My first thought was rocky road, I've been dreaming about it since the last potluck when we made rockyroad ice cream. I decided to follow this recipe, but made some tiny adjustments:

650grams (roughly) chocolate
1 packet of dandies marshmallows from radical grocery, chopped
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
200g turkish delights, chopped
1/2 peanuts (I used crushed peanuts but will use whole or half pieces next time)

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl while you melt the chocolate, and then add the melted chocolate and mix again. Put mixture into a lined slice pan and refrigerate for about an hour and then cut into squares.

It was tasty, quite rich and super easy to make. While I liked the texture of turkish delights, I think the flavour overpowered the marshmallows so next time I think I will substitute the Turkish delights for cranberries or cherries. If you are making them for someone who is g/f then make sure that the turkish delights are g/f, the ones from coles had wheat in them, but I found a pack at A1 bakery that was g/f and vegan.

By the way, I've decided to remove my name from this blog for work reasons.


  1. Oooh, I'm liking the sound of this (albeit with the cranberries substitution, as I'm no big fan of rosewater and turkish delight). Then I could even sub in pistachios for the peanuts, couldn't I? And then it'd be even *less* like real rocky road! Teehee...

  2. I was all excited about the turkish delight in the rocky road - I am sure I had rocky road with turkish delight somewhere that I loved - shame it was too intense - could you try different flavours???

  3. Clearly I've been ignorant, but I always assumed turkish delight wasn't vegetarian. I thought it had gelatin, and I was sure, i never actually checked. Very excited now! Might have to make a special trip to the shops for it :)
