Ingredients

  • 300 g (10.5 oz) white chocolate - cut into even pieces See Note 1
  • ¼ cup (20 g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup (80 g) pink marshmallows - quartered See Note 2
  • cup pistachios
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup dried apricots - chopped into thirds

For the topping (optional)

  • 2 teaspoon dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon pistachios
  • 2 teaspoon desiccated coconut

Instructions

  • Line an 18 cm x 13 cm (7 inch x 5 inch) slice tin with baking paper.
  • Place the desiccated coconut, quartered marshmallows, pistachios, cranberries and apricots in a bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate: place the chopped chocolate pieces in a bain marie/double boiler or heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir with a metal spoon or spatula until the chocolate has almost melted. Remove from the heat – the residual heat will melt the remaining chocolate.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, leave it for a couple of minutes to cool slightly. See Note 3.
    Once cooled slightly, pour into the bowl with the marshmallows, coconut, pistachios and dried fruit.
  • Stir well so everything is covered in the chocolate.
    Pour into the prepared tin and flatten down with a spatula or metal spoon.
  • Sprinkle over the topping of cranberries, pistachios and desiccated coconut, if using.
  • Place in the fridge for 2 hours or until set.
  • Cut into 10 pieces using a warm sharp knife. It’s easier to cut if you take it out of the fridge 15-30 minutes before you cut it.
    Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  1. Use the best quality chocolate that you can – this will produce the best result.
  2. If using regular marshmallows, cut them into quarters. Alternatively, use mini marshmallows.
  3. Leave the chocolate to cool for a minute or two before pouring over the marshmallows. If the chocolate is too hot, they can begin to melt.
  4. If you prefer, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave – melt at 20 second intervals, stirring after each one.
  5. Please note, the nutritional information is based on the White Chocolate Rocky Road being cut into 10 pieces. The nutritional information is an estimate only.
