These Rocky Road treats have become a regular at our birthday parties. The first reason is that they taste good, the second reason is that they are so simple to make and the third reason is that they store well up to week so they can made a few days in advance if preferred. I’m always on the look-out for great ideas and recipes that are not too complicated to make. It’s a way to cut down on everyday stress.
This recipe is from a Finnish women’s magazine, Kotivinkki. Click here for the orginal recipe in Finnish.
200 g/7 oz milk chocolate, broken into chunks
250 g/8.8 oz dark chocolate, broken into chunks
1 can (400g/14 oz) of condensed milk
50 g/1.7 oz butter
200g g/7 oz soft black liquorice cut into small bits
100g/3.5 oz mini marshmallows or large ones cut into four
3 dl/1.3 c salted peanuts
Melt the chopped chocolate, condensed milk and butter in heavy bottomed saucepan at medium heat. Stir constantly.
Cut the the liquorice into smaller bits and marshmallows as well if using large ones.
Mix the liquorice, marshmallows and peanuts into the melted chocolate mixture and pour into a parchment paper lined lasagna pan (23x33cm or 9×13”). Place in the fridge and allow the Rocky Road toffee to harden for 4-6 hours.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to week or in the summer I have stored it in the refrigerator.
These would make the perfect little gift to bring along to a party wrapped up pretty in some cellophane and a bow.
They look delicious. Love the way you balanced them for the photo.
Oh my.. these are more than just beautiful! Can i have one? 🙂
I wish that virtual samples could have a flavor…maybe you’ll just have to make your own batch! 🙂
These look superb and such great photos!
I don’t think I’ve tried Rocky Road with licorice before. I may just have to make these.
I really like it that they have the black liquorice in them…but I know that it may divide people, some like it and some don’t!
I love the look of these! And I LOVE that they have black liquorice in them! So many people can’t stand the stuff – I’m glad you’re not one of them 🙂
I love black liquorice..especially the salty black liquorice that they have over here. These have the “regular” liquorice in them.
They look delicious, and I am a big black licorice fan!! I must compliment you on the photo, it’s fantastic!!
Glad that you are a black liquorice fan as well! So am I!
I was the only kid that liked “Good and Plenty” and on Easter picked all the black jelly beans out. I love it!
