From my kitchen to yours :: Fudgy Chocolatey Rocky Road

This Rocky Road is delicious! Everytime this recipe is made, the Rocky Road doesn't last long and I get requests for it all the time. I get a lot of people asking me for this recipe and I've shared it with you before several years ago, but for some reason the link has broken and I've lost the post altogether, so I thought that I would re-visit the recipe.

It makes a great handmade gift to pop into a Christmas basket or Jingle cone- or bring it out at the next quilting group.


It's a closely kept family recipe…so guard it with your life! I know that the person who shared it with me spent lots of time in the kitchen experimenting- it was a tough job, but somebody had to do it!


  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate- roughly chopped
  • 20g unsalted butter
  • A generous 1/3 cup (120g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 50g chopped unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 50g chopped  dried cranberries
  • 75g roughly chopped shortbread biscuits
  • 200g marshmallows- roughly chopped
  • 150g white chocolate- roughly chopped




  1. Grease an 8cm x 20cm bar pan. Line with baking paper, leaving some overhanging.

  2. Place dark chocolate, butter
    and condensed milk in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Allow to melt, then stir gently until smooth.
    Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in nuts, biscuit, marshmallows, cranberries
    and 100g chopped white chocolate. Spread mixture into pan.

  3. Melt remaining 50g white chocolate as
    before. Drizzle over fudge, chill for 2-3 hours in the fridge, then cut into




Yum…looking great! Now pop in the fridge to chill for a few hours. When ready slice into squares.

A handmade gift is extra special, it means that somebody took extra time to think of you and to make you something. I love it!


Speaking of Christmas…I was sent these gorgeous photos during the week from one of my followers that I just had to share them with you. These beautiful photos below come from Delores in Sweden, they make me want a white Christmas!

Thank you for sharing Delores, it looks a beautiful place to live.

        Yum, will have to make that, dammit;-). It looks divine. Loved Dolores’s photos. Have never had a white Xmas. I wonder if they get a show of the Northern Lights. That has been uppermost on my “bucket” list for a long time. Thank you Bronwyn for all your ideas and giveaways.Shirley
