St Patrick’s Day! So to mark the occasion here is the recipe for the yummiest Rocky Road:
300g Dark Chocolate
100g Unsalted Butter
5 Tablespoons (roughly) Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
200g Mini Marshmallows
75g Pistachio Nuts
75g Shortbread (Chopped up)
75g Dried Cranberries
150g White Chocolate (Chopped)
Step 1: Melt the dark chocolate and butter in a glass bowl over a apn of boiling water (you can do this in the microwave if you are better at timings than me and are confident you won’t burn your chocolate). Add in the Baileys and mix well. Use as much or little Baileys as you wish, just see what you think tastes best. Allow this to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Step 2: Mix in the nuts, cranberries, shortbread, half of the white chocolate and all (yes all) of the marshmallows and mix well. This will seem like a ridiculous amount of marshmallows but trust me, the more the better. It goes without saying that you can swap the nuts and berries to whatever you prefer but these are my personal favourites for this recipes. This is mainly because the pistachios add a nice green colour that looks cute with the pink marshmallows and I hate glace cherries, but each to their own.
Step 3: Pour into a bread tin. Use a silicone bread tin, just sooo much easier and they are dead cheap. Stick it in the fridge until set, this usually takes about 3 hours.
Step 4: Melt the remaining white chocolate and pour over the mixture. Once this has set pop the rocky road out of the tin and cut into slices or chunks.
Hope these instructions are easy enough for everyone to follow. It really is very easy to make and never fails to impress people. Enjoy!
