Indulgent Vegan Rocky Road
This is one of my fav recipes ever! I absolutely love rocky road, if I ever feel a bit blue or need of a dose of pure indulgence then this is what I make to treat myself!
I discovered it in Starbucks, yes go ahead and have a laugh :-) we don’t have it in Italy so my first encounter with this sweet was in 2004, and it was love at first sight! Now that I’m vegan I’ve tried a lot of different recipes to make them as I like - really chocolatey and soft in the middle - and eventually came up with this one. I hope you find the recipe easy to make and the results super tasty!
This recipe is perfect is you’re going to a party and want to bring something that makes everyone happy, especially kids’ parties!
Serves about 6/8 people
Prep time about 15 minutes
Cooling time about 1 hour
40g Vegan digestive biscuits, roughly chopped
50g Vegan chocolate chips
60g dried cranberries - this will add a chewy texture to your rocky road
75g Vegan mini marshmallows
235g organic vegan dark chocolate melted
Grill the macadamias and hazelnuts for 10 minutes or so on medium heat, until they’ve browned up a bit. But best to stay with them to not let them get too toasty! Let them cool down and chop roughly.
Put the biscuits, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, cranberries and cooled macadamias and hazelnuts in a bowl and mix well.
After melting the dark chocolate let it cool down a bit so it doesn't melt the chocolate chips. Then pour it into the rest of the mixture and stir it up well.
Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with baking paper, and spread it out evenly.
Put in the fridge and wait an hour! Get ready to enjoy! I love having this with a nice cup of tea!
