Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 100g milk chocolate, chopped
  • 20g copha or butter, chopped
  • 280g pink and white marshmallows, halved
  • 150g shortbread fingers, coarsely chopped
  • 4 x 35g pkts Coles Gingerbread, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (70g) slivered almonds, toasted
  • 4 x 52g Cadbury Cherry Ripe bars, coarsely chopped
  • Green & red Mars M&M’s and M&M’s Minis, to decorate

Method

STEP 1

Grease the base and sides of a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan. Line with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.

STEP 2

Place combined chocolate and copha or butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir for 5 mins or until the mixture melts and is smooth.

STEP 3

Combine marshmallow, shortbread, gingerbread, almond and Cherry Ripe in a large bowl. Add chocolate mixture. Gently fold until just combined. Spoon into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with M&M’s and M&M’s Minis. Set aside for 60 mins to set. Cut into pieces to serve.

Should I keep this in the fridge?

If the weather’s really hot and your rocky road starts to melt, you can pop it in the fridge. Otherwise, it’ll be fine in an airtight container at room temperature.
