There was a good one in the Sunday Life magazine about 2 years ago, from memory (because I've made it quite a few times):

* 250g milk chocolate
* 250g dark chocolate
* 10 glace cherries - halved
* Vanilla marshmallows (about half a bag of the Pascal ones - using all the white ones and halve them)
* 90g toasted almond slivers
* 80g pistachios
* Turkish delight (I use about 9 squares - halved)
* 1/3C dessicated coconut

I tend to prepare all the ingredients except the chocolate and then I melt the chocolate in the microwave and pour it in with the rest of the ingredients. Once everything is covered in chocolate, I pour the mixture into a lined, 20cm cake tin and put in the fridge for about half an hour. Then cut into squares.

Ohhhhh now you made me want it too!!

I won the 2011 Office Rocky Road Challenge with this amazing recipe for Snickers Rocky Road (Probably the pinnacle of my career!). A delicious hunk of mess consisting of marshmallow, peanuts, chocolate, caramel and nougat...


375 g/13 ozs. milk chocolate
200 g/7 ozs. roasted unsalted peanuts
6 full sized Snickers bars
225 g/8 oz. bag of pink and white marshmallows

Line a square tin with foil. Chop up two of the Snickers bars and set aside and then chop the rest of the bars. Over a double boiler place the chocolate and the pieces from the two Snickers bars and melt this (it won’t fully melt but it will partially melt)

Meanwhile while this is melting, cut the marshmallows in half roughly if they’re large ones and place in a bowl along with the roasted unsalted peanuts and pieces of the remaining four Snickers bars. Stir so that the rubble of the peanuts and marshmallows are coated in chocolate and then spoon into the lined tray. Refrigerate or cool on a benchtop until set and then cut into pieces.

Enjoy!!

I have used various recipes that I modify the additions to suit us.

We recently tasted a Crunchie rocky road, and we made our own like this:

A bag of marshmallows (i use kitchen scissors to chop in half)
1/2 cup salted peanuts (the salt adds to the flavour)
1 bag of lolly raspberries (I put these in whole.  Hubby doesn't like turkish delight)
5 crunchie bars chopped up

We have also added peanut m&ms, maltesers, rolo's

Melt 600g chocolate or 500g dark choc and 100g copha, combine and set in a tray in the fridge.

ETA: You can also add some chopped up peppermint crisp

This one is delicious but I substitute raspberry lollies for the turkish delight (which I think tastes like soap  sick.gif ). It's so yummy!

Oh dear, this craving is going to stick around for a while!!
The crunchie and snickers versions sound heavenly (and deadly)!

And to the PP who called rocky road evil - yes it is. I had a mouthful of my DHs valentines day rocky road tonight which is what set off this craving. It's 4am and I'm feeding DD2 and all I can think about is a chocolatey, marshmallowy, peanutty mess!

Does the condensed milk change the consistency of the chocolate? Does it set? I've never sen this and am intrigued!
