Chunks of rocky road are a lovely surprise when served with coffee or as a treat at the end of your meal. And wrapped in cellophane, they make great gifts.
750 g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 ½ cups (200g) chopped white marshmallows
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups raisins
1 cup roasted peanuts
- Line a medium (about 30cm x 20cm) slice tin with baking paper. Melt chocolate in a dry, heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water, or microwave in 1-minute intervals, stirring until melted. Remove from heat and stir in all other ingredients. Spoon into the prepared tin and refrigerate until set (about 2 hours). Cut into chunks or slabs and store in a cool place.
