Here is the other successful recipe from a Christmas gone by, Raspberry Rocky Road. I love rocky road but just hate glace cherries and I much prefer to use raspberry lollies. There are plenty of rocky road recipes – and they’re all easily adaptable – but I like this one in particular because it makes a nice big slab of rocky road, which makes for an attractive and decadent gift item. My brother always requests this and so I sometimes make some just for him.
Raspberry Rocky Road
750 g milk chocolate
350 g marshmallows, halved
50 g white choc chips
100 g turkish dellight, cut into a 1cm dice
50g raspberry lollies, halved
¼ cup slivered almonds
½ cup shredded coconut
Line base and sides of 26x16cm lamington pan with baking paper.
Melt 300g milk chocolate in microwave, stirring often, until it’s smooth. Pour into the base of the prepared pan. Arrange half of the marshmallows over the top. Next scatter over the white choc chips, turkish delight, raspberry lollies, half the almonds and half the coconut, filling in any gaps.
Scatter over the remaining marshmallows.
Melt remaining milk chocolate in the microwave, stirring often, until it’s smooth. Pour over two thirds of the melted chocolate, covering the marshmallows evenly. Use a small spatula to gently mix and allow chocolate through the layers.
Scatter with the remaining almonds and coconut, pressing down gently to stick to chocolate. Chill for at least 2 hours to set.
Cut into bars or squares to serve.
