Gluten free - can be dairy free- egg free - contains sugar.
This is such a simple yet yummy Christmas-time treat. Ok, I'll admit this is basically just a white chocolate Rocky Road, but it has a very festive twist! I use dried cranberries and pistachios to give them a red and green theme, and I make it flat and cut in into angled 'shards' instead of in the traditional Rocky Road squares. You can try it either way- this year I did a bit of both.
I know not everyone can eat white chocolate for various reasons. There are dairy-free white chocolate options out there. I haven't found a low sugar version yet, but that's why it's called a treat! You can also use a high-cocoa-content dark chocolate if you prefer to make it lower in sugar and dairy free.
I have no set quantities for this recipe...I kinda wing it each time, depending on how much I want to end up with at the end. So here are the list of ingredients- all completely optional and replaceable with any similar produce (other dried fruit and nuts), and ratios depend on your own taste buds!
Stir all your 'mix-ins' into the melted chocolate. Poor onto your baking tray and use a spatula to spread and flatten the mix. Place in fridge till set and cut into desired shapes.
As an extra treat, for my Rocky Road this year, I also melted some dark chocolate (about 1/4 of the amount of white chocolate I'd used) and spread it over the base of the set Rocky Road. This gave it a lovely contrasting base and I love the way the less-sweet dark chocolate cuts through the super-sweetness of the white. I was so happy with these that I included them as part of my Christmas gifts to my girlfriends. GLORIOUS!
