Both my boyfriend and I have  teeny obsessions with Rocky Roads. Mainly because they are pretty much fool poof, no baking is required, and they are jam packed full of chocolate and yummy things that they well and truly satisfy your sweet tooth.
So for my boyfriends birthday, instead of baking or buying a conventional cake, we decided to revamp our regular rocky road recipe.

For this rocky road we started with melting a rather large bar of white baking choclate with about 150g of butter.

We then went on to throw in a good handful of dried cranberries, pistachios ad mini marshmallows. Of course you can switch these around to your taste, in our other rocky roads we would use raisins instead of dried cranberries, this was also our first time adding pistachios.

 You then need to add in your chunks of milk and dark chocolate, as well as some chopped up digestives. We've also found using chopped up Cadbury's Fingers are a good alternative to plain digestive biscuits!

We put all of our mixture in to a tin foiled brownie tray to set.
 In another bowl, melt together any remaining milk and dark choclate with about 50g of butter and spread across the other mixture.

Add some cranberries and crushed pistachios and biscuits for decoration!

Et Voila! Your very own Triple Chocolate Rocky Road! Now all you gotta do is wait for it to set! You can do this by putting it in the fridge for a couple of hours, or just leaving it on the side over night. We tend not to put it in the fridge as it can get a little hard to bite, room temperate is defintely best when you want to tuck in!
When serving just pop out of the tin foil/baking parchment and cut up into little squares!

I love this recipe, I'm not the best baker as I get a little impatient and always tend to ruin something by taking it out to soon or late so recipes that require no oven are great for me. Especially this one as I think it looks so cool!

Let me know if you make your own!

Love Alison xx
