Can be gluten free, grain free, dairy free, nut free - egg free
There are probably thousands of recipes over the internet for Rocky Road, but that's not going to stop me from putting mine on here!! Actually, I don't follow a recipe at all when I make Rocky Road- just go with whatever takes me at the time. That's the beauty of it. It's quick and super easy. I always have a few blocks of dark chocolate in my pantry and enough other bits and pieces that this makes a great last-minute-I-need-to-bring-something-along treat, that is always a hit.
I'm posting this now in the lead up to Easter, because it's a great Chocolate treat, and you can also make your own Easter eggs filled with Rocky Road...an extra decadent treat, and you're making it yourself so you are in control of the ingredients. Check out my Make Your Own Easter Eggs post here.
I use 70% cocoa fair trade dark chocolate, so it's dairy free, low in sugar and ensuring I'm not contributing to the exploitation of labourers in the Third World. You can use what ever chocolate you like- even white chocolate works great (check out my more Christmassy White Chocolate Shards recipe here for more ideas).
