2023 Holiday Treats – Part 1

Here is the first of my Holiday Treat posts for this year. This no-bake treat is easy to make and perfect for gift giving. A simple medley of dried fruit, mini marshmallows, and crushed graham crackers are nestled in white chocolate creating a treat that (almost) feels good for you.

American vs. British Rocky Road

American rocky road is typically an ice cream or a fudge. It’s usually made with dark chocolate, walnuts, and mini marshmallows. I have never enjoyed either version. As an ice cream, I don’t care for the marshmallows and walnuts and as a fudge it is much too sweet (but, for me, that’s true of all types of fudge).

British rocky road is a no-bake slice similar to tiffin. It is similar to American-style rocky road with the use of mini marshmallows. The difference comes with the addition of biscuits and dried fruit. The amount of chocolate is also typically less in a British rocky road. And this version uses white chocolate instead of dark or milk chocolate.

What is in Rocky Road?

The main ingredients for this recipe are:

  • Chocolate – this recipe uses white chocolate but you can substitute milk or dark chocolate
  • Biscuits – graham crackers or shortbread work well
  • Dried fruit – dried apricots (for tartness) and golden raisins (for sweetness)
  • Mini marshmallows

Other optional ingredients:

Like other tiffins we’ve made, you could change things up to make the recipe your own. Some things you could add are:

  • Nuts – while it’s not something I would necessarily like, I think pistachios or cashews would work well
  • Candies – small chocolates or even gummy candies (they are similar in texture to dried fruits). Caramel-type candies would also work well.
  • Other dried fruit – try dried apples and bump up the cinnamon for a autumn treat. Or swap in dried pineapple and some desiccated coconut for a tropical theme. You will often find coconut in Australian versions of rocky road.
  • Sprinkles – for a festive version, you may add sprinkles into the mixture. Or, drizzle more white chocolate over the top of the cooled rocky road and decorate with sprinkles.

Description

This British no-bake white chocolate slice includes biscuits and dried fruit, similar to tiffin but with the addition of mini marshmallows. It is inspired by a recipe by Nadiya Hussein.


Ingredients

Scale

7 ounces white chocolate*, chopped

2 tablespoons honey

4 ounces unsalted butter (1 stick)

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

7 ounces graham crackers (about 13 double crackers)

1 cup mini marshmallows

3 ounces dried apricots, cut into quarters (about 13 apricots)

1/2 cup golden raisins

1 tablespoon confectioners sugar, for dusting

Sea salt and sprinkles, for topping


Instructions

Line a 9″ x 9″ baking pan with parchment paper.

Roughly crush the graham crackers. Pieces should be small enough so you can mix them in with other ingredients but not fine crumbs. You want to see chunks of crackers in the final product.

Place a medium-sized, heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water and melt the white chocolate, honey, and butter together, being careful not to let the bowl touch the water. When the mixture is smooth and homogenous, remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

Add the salt and cinnamon and mix thoroughly.

Stir the graham cracker pieces/crumbs, mini marshmallows, apricots, and golden raisins into the chocolate mixture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and level off. Sprinkle with sea salt and/or sprinkles (optional). Cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Once set, carefully remove the rocky road from the baking tray and dust with confectioners sugar.

Cut into squares and serve.

Rocky Road will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month.
