When I think about Christmas recipes, rocky road immediately springs to mind. It’s one of those seriously easy recipes that I only seem to make at Christmas time, which is probably a good thing for my waist line! This year I wanted to mix it up a little and try something a little different using my favourite Rocky Road recipe. This Rocky Road Christmas Pudding is the perfect no bake Christmas dessert and would be the perfect centrepiece on any Christmas party or even Christmas Day table.
This recipe is so forgiving and you can easily substitute any of the ingredients (aside from the chocolate!) for your favourite treats. I’ve also made versions using raisins, shortbread and even popping candy – the ingredients you can use and combinations are really only limited by your imagination.
My two little helpers were VERY eager to help me out with this recipe, and it’s surprising that we actually ended up with enough ingredients to put this Rocky Road together. Many of the photos I took had to be discarded thanks to little hands trying to steal a marshmallow or swipe some of the melted chocolate.
I have heard rumours that mint leaves are no longer being made, thankfully our local IGA still has them in stock so I’ve been loading up for all the Christmas baking I’m planning to do over the next few months.
If the thought of one big Chocolate Rocky Road Christmas Pudding is a little too much for you, you could also split the Rocky Road mixture into cupcake cases to make little individual puddings, these also have the added bonus of being great Christmas gifts for friends, teachers and family.
What’s your favourite Rocky Road combination?
