Chef Ray – Dark Chocolate Rocky Road

A delicious wee treat that you can share with the whole family, that doesn’t have any added sugar.

From: Ray, Kerrie; Choc-a-Block Easter In (Apr 18) Healthy Food Guide

Serves 20

  • 150g white marshmallows
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • ½ cup shelled salted pistachios
  • 4 cups plain air-popped popcorn
  • ¼ cup chopped dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 180g 70% dark chocolate, chopped
  1. Grease and line the base and sides of a 29cm x 16cm rectangular tin with baking paper.
  2. Cut marshmallows into quarters using scissors. In a large bowl, place marshmallows, coconut, pistachios, popcorn, dried apricots, cranberries and goji berries. Mix well.
  3. In a heatproof bowl, melt chocolate on high power in the microwave for 1 minute, or until melted and smooth. Stir chocolate halfway through cooking to prevent burning.
  4. Pour chocolate over marshmallow mixture, quickly stir, then pour mixture into prepared tin. Spread mixture over base with a spatula. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes, or until set. Cut into squares or break into pieces to serve.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.

If you enjoyed this recipe here is one I published last year:
