Join me on facebook... 2012 is going to be a great year!!

Busy, busy, busy in the lead up to Christmas? I know I have, with barely the time to bake it's time for a super quick idea!! This rocky road recipe is easily doubled... and if you need more make seperate batches. There is a splash of liqueur in it, but if making for the kids just leave it out. 

White Chocolate Cranberry and Pistachio Rocky Road with Grand Marnier 

makes 12 to 16 pieces


300g (10oz) white chocolate 

25g (0.90oz) unsalted butter

100g (3.5oz) pistachios

100g (3.5oz) dried cranberries 

50g (1.75oz) pink and white marshmallows cut in half with oiled scissors

1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier (optional) 


Line a brownie or slice tin with plastic wrap or non stick baking paper. If using Grand Marnier, mix the Grand Marnier and dried cranberries in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium low 10 seconds at a time until cranberries begin to plump. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl melt chocolate and butter over a pan of simmering water until just melted. Be careful not to overheat. Stir in pistachios, marshmallows and cranberries. Pour into lined tin and smooth top with spatula. Chill for 2 hours in the fridge. Turn out and cut into squares. Package in cellophane treat bags.

Merry Christmas!!!

Back second week of the New Year, safe and happy festive season to everyone... and happy baking :)
