This mouth watering rocky road recipe is brought to us by our wonderful blog contributor Kirsten. Sit back and enjoy what she has to share, then get in the kitchen and make this amazing rocky road!
Sweet white chocolate and sticky raspberry flavoured lollies combined with soft, fluffy marshmallows and crunchy chocolate biscuit pieces. A sensational sweet treat for any occasion!
The bewitching hour is upon us… well, month anyway; can you believe it is almost Halloween!?
Now, I know I gave you a cookies ‘n cream ice cream cake recipe last month, but it was so popular (and in all honesty… I was craving it) so here it is- Cookies ‘n Cream Rocky Road. Who doesn’t love anything Cookies ‘n Cream?
In Australia, Halloween has only become a popular holiday in the last few years. As a kid, especially from a small-ish town, if you told someone that you were going trick or treating- you would have received a strange look. I remember the first time my sister and our neighbour went trick or treating, they had strict instructions from Mum:
Only stay in the court.
Let me break that down for you- 7 houses in total, all with people that had lived there for at least a couple of years. One was an older couple who didn’t speak much English. Another- friends, but they didn’t really keep lollies. Then there was the young university students who were never home. My favourite- an old lady and her son who misunderstood almost everything we said; the lack of English sometimes made them get really angry at us, eg- you have a nice cat, somehow was translated to ‘you’re fat’. My least favourite- a house we weren’t allowed to visit (strange.. strange man) and then, our house and the other trick or trickers house. Needless to say, their ventures were not successful.
I don’t want you to think my Mum and Dad would just let my sister go and door knock, they were hawks- just from the front door. They could see (and hear) everything from there- trust me! Anyway, long story short… the next year, they just had a Halloween Party in the backyard. Longer story short, this recipe would be perfect for such an occasion.
One thing that gets me at Halloween parties, is the gross food. I know, I get it- it doesn’t taste like eyeballs, but I still don’t want to eat it- thanks anyway. This is the recipe that DOES get eaten at the party and it is perfect for all special occasions. Easy to make, great for parties or a fabulous end of year gift (yeah, we are almost there!)
