Luxe Rocky Road

rocky road DIY christmas gift idea

This is a luxurious twist on rocky road that works well for gifts, or as a sweet treat for friends and family who pop in. You can swap the puffed rice/ rice bubbles for puffed quinoa if you like, but itโ€™s worth putting one sort in, it brings a very fun crackle to the party. One tip is to use kitchen scissors for cutting the Turkish delight and marshmallows โ€“ they make prepping the ingredients a cakewalk. This is a good one to get the kids involved in. Just melt, mix and set.

Makes 5 bars, or 25 small pieces. Scales up easily.



  1. Grease and line a 23 cm square cake tin with baking paper, leaving an overhang to help you lift the rocky road out of the tin.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in short bursts, stirring in between, or in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water.ย 
  4. Pour the melted chocolate over the ingredients, stirring to combine. Pour into the prepared cake tin, being sure to pat down firmly into the corners and smooth the top as best you can.
  5. Transfer to the fridge for two hours to set. Remove and use a very sharp knife to slice. Transfer to cellophane bags and tie for gifts.
  6. This will keep in the fridge for a week, or can be frozen for up to a month.
