White Chocolate Rocky Road

Luca's School Xmas Fair is creeping up on us, this Friday.
It will be our first Christmas Fair, and as I have no real knowledge of what goes on at one of these events, I have asked some more experienced mums...
Games, raffles, cake, mulled wine, face painting, Santa's Grotto and more seems to be the answer.

We have been asked (for who ever fancies it) to produce some cakes/pastries/sweets for the stalls and as I love any excuse to bake, I've tried something new.

White Chocolate Rocky Road

Super quick to make, and in fact, no actual baking required.


You just melt the white chocolate (in a heat proof bowl over simmering water).
Once the chocolate has melted, take it off the heat and add the marshmallows, dried fruit, pistachio nuts if you like... pour it all in an oven dish lined with grease-proof-paper and let it set/cool for a good few hours.
I stuck mine in the fridge, once it had cooled to speed up the process.


Here are the ingredients:

800g White Chocolate (chopped)
2 1/2 cups of Mini Marshmallows (pink and white)
1/2 cup Dried Apples
1 3/4 cups of Dried Cranberries
1 Cup of Freeze Dried Strawberries (difficult to find, so any other "RED" dried fruit would do)
Add some Pistachio nuts too if you like.


Once totally cooled and hardened, remove from the baking trey and chop the Rocky Road into squares or rectangles.


Done... ready for the Christmas Fair!!!
