white chocolate rocky road – 3 ways

It wouldn’t be Christmas if there wasn’t a bit of rocky road being made in our house. I haven’t started making it yet but it will make an appearance as the school year comes to an end. And I’ve had a few messages asking where to find my recipe so I decided just to make a new recipe card all in the one spot. Just for you this Christmas.


version 1 – mini marshmallows and raspberry lollies

And my only advice……always make double batches. Nothing worse than making up one batch to give away and not have any to eat at home. The menfolk like to know that you’ve saved a bit for them

turkish delight yum

version 2 : mini marshmallows and turkish delight

We give out rocky road to teachers, friends, neighbours, family………everyone really! Everyone loves it and it’s a total no brainer. Enjoy………….and don’t come back and tell me you ate it all. You know how it goes here – all care taken, no responsibility given.

chunky road road

version 3: chunky rocky road

And don’t forget if you’re giving it away to make it look special! These are just little tumblers I picked up at my local homewares store with a bit of cellophane and ribbon. Too easy. Plus once it’s wrapped you can’t dig into it to eat it.

presentation counts

Have you got any rocky road variations you want to tell me about? Retro daddy has been asking for lolly bananas in his????

Total time
You will always make friends with a batch of rocky road
Recipe type: Chocolate
Serves: 20+
What you'll need
  • 2 bags of white chocolate melts (375g bags)
  • 1 bag of raspberry lollies (or 100g turkish delight for a fancier version)
  • 2 bags of mini marshmallows
  • OR 1 bag regular marshmallows for the chunky rocky road
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut and extra to sprinkle
  1. Melt chocolate in a large bowl in your microwave. I do 3 -4 minutes on medium and stir a couple of times for a double batch of chocolate like this recipe.
  2. Do not put it in the microwave and walk away. Chocolate can go a bit crazy when you turn your back on it.
  3. In a large bowl combine the raspberry lollies (or turkish delight), marshmallows (little or big ones) and desiccated coconut. Pour in melted chocolate and stir well. Working quickly spread into a silicone tray (I use a tupperware slice tray) or a lined lamington tin.
  4. Sprinkle with a bit of extra coconut.
  5. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes until set. Slice and serve or wrap up or eat.


  1. Meredith S says:

    My favourite Rocky Road for giving as gifts is a white chocolate one as well.
    Mine has cranberries, coconut and pistachios in it.

  2. I love any type of Rocky Road, but i like a bit of crunch so I add a Violet Crumble to mine, all crushed up! Yuummy!

  3. We made your Rocky Road last year, gave it away & a batch for ourselves – yum! Think I put almonds in for some crunch, as the only nut my daughter can eat. Just realised how great your recipe cards look on the site, I musn’t have commented on a food post recently and been taken out of my reader – much nicer viewing here.

  4. We saw some the other day that had us all drooling…..it had nougat and pistachios in it…..would be lover-ly with Turkish delight in their as well….mmmmmmm

  5. I have a recipe that I’m making this year as well as the usual chocolate and nut. It has cranberries, white chocolate and dried strawberries, it looks good, hope it tastes as good

  6. Thats a great idea for teachers pressies – love the star cups and ribbon Corrie!

  7. I always make my rocky road with milk or dark chocolate – but I like to make this treat called ‘White Christmas’ with white chocolate: http://goodfoodweek.blogspot.com.au/2010/12/merry-christmas-say-it-with-chocolate.html

  8. I made your version 1 last year and it was a MASSIVE hit, I’ll be doing it again this year for sure x

  9. Thank you for sharing your recipe….it does look so yummy!! I am going to have a go!

  10. Ah funny, I was going to look back to get your recipes again as they were a hit last year and so easy to make! I think making a double batch is sound advice as the maker does also have to be a taster!!

  11. I have been using your recipe for quite a few years now but not just for Christmas. Oh no! The Mother’s Day stall and Father’s Day stall at school get a generous helping as my donation. And every year it is the first request so thank you for such a delicious and easy recipe that everybody loves. :)

  12. Hi Corrie! I’m going to use this recipe for some presents for people at work :) Such a great idea to put it in a nice cup like that. How many cups can you usually fill up with one batch of rocky road?
    Thanks :)

  13. Thanks Corrie, love this one !


  14. it seems good, I will try with turkish delight.
