There’s nothing quite like a classic bite of rocky road, it happens to be a particular favourite of mine, but I always feel very naughty afterwards. It must be something to do with all that marshmallow! Either way I tend to reserve making it only on special occasions. One such occasion happens to be Easter! Oh and low and behold, it is Easter! But alas, that eternal struggle of “I want to eat it all” vs “I really, really shouldn’t!”. So I thought why not knock up a couple of yummy batches for my Easter Hampers for my family instead, then I won’t have a chance to eat any! (I mean except for taste testing of course!) Whether it’s for a special ocassion or just because, you can now enjoy that classic Australian recipe Gluten Free Rocky Road!
The great thing about Rocky Road is it’s just so versatile, you can literally swap in and out any ingredients that you like or don’t like and it really is so easy to make gluten free. So if you’d like to make a yummy edible gift for a gluten free friend? Why not give this a try, you really can’t go wrong.
What I really wanted to make this time though was a classic Australian rocky road. I say Australian because the ingredients for Rocky road have always varied from country to country. In Australia you’d typically see Milk chocolate stuffed with marshmallows, desiccated coconut, glace´ cherries, nuts and Turkish delight. Where as is the UK you are more likely to see milk chocolate, biscuits and marshmallow with a touch of icing sugar sprinkled over top. In the US you are likely to find Rocky road ice cream with a swirl of marshmallow through it.
Me though? I wasn’t really in the mood to make my own Turkish delight, not today anyway. (I might try that one a little bit down the track.) For now though I thought a simple take on the Aussie rocky road would be just the ticket. Enter my Classic Gluten Free Rocky Road.
So there you have it my yummy Classic Gluten Free Rocky Road. A treat for any day of the year, but especially nice at Easter when it just doesn’t feel so naughty. Why not even give it a bit of an Easter twist with the addition of some solid egg chocolates? Or for the non-glutards amongst us, some Cadbury Creme Eggs? Hmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Sending you all Peace, Love and Easter Blessings!
