Says Sally: ‘Every December, my partner becomes the most popular guy in the office when I send him to work with a massive tub of rocky road.
‘This year I've made four different kinds: White Christmas (almonds, cherries, rice bubbles and coconut). Traditional rocky road (milk chocolate with cherries, peanuts and marshmallows). Extreme rocky road (dark chocolate with cherries, chopped lolly snakes, macadamia nuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, peanuts, honeycomb and marshmallows). And this year I did a new variety and I'm still trying to think up a cute name for it ... it's made with a blend of white, milk and dark chocolate and contains ginger snap biscuit pieces, raspberry jelly lollies and marshmallows.
‘Oh, and just a hint for anyone planning to mass produce rocky road - get cheap silicone icecube trays and spoon the chocolate in - no chopping! The cubes of chocolate just pop straight out.’
Revealing that she bought the ice cube trays from Big W, Sally went on to explain that she doesn’t really have a set recipe: ‘I just melt 2-3 bags of Cadbury chocolate melts and add stuff, then mix well and spoon into the trays.
‘No copha or anything like that. I literally just add stuff until it looks chunky and yummy. 😂 I put it into the fridge to set for 2-3 hours before popping the chocolates out of the trays.’
Love it! The hack has received an ‘overwhelming response’ from other members on the Facebook group, who loved the idea.
‘Yum!! I love rocky road! Great tip about the ice cube trays,’ said one. Added another: ‘They look so good. What a great idea. Game changer!’
Added a third: ‘Thanks for the ice cube tray tip; my arm gets sore when I chop the big slabs of it that I make!’
Said one more: ‘Genius!’
We couldn’t agree more!
