I have made traditional rocky road for many years now. This year, I had a go at making some lovely Christmas inspired rocky road. I have made a Rocky Road Wreath and Rocky Road Christmas Trees, using my basic Rocky Road Recipe, just creating it in shapes. This fun recipe is more Christmassy, made with red and green jelly lollies, marshmallows and some of the Christmas red and green M & M’s.
Christmas Rocky Road
For rocky road, you can use a variety of different mixtures. Marshmallows, whether the mini ones, or if using the large ones, cut with a pair of scissors into smaller pieces. We love rocky road with jelly lollies, clinkers, and a handful of nuts. I prefer to use milk chocolate, though you could use dark or a mixture of both dark and milk chocolate.
Being for Christmas, in this recipe, I used:
- red and green snake lollies
- white, pink and green mini marshmallows
- red and green Christmas M & M’s
Other products you could use are:
- glace cherries
- shortbread, chopped
- mint chocolate pieces
- Tim Tams, broken up
- macadamia nuts
- Turkish delights
- dried cranberries
- goji berries

What are snake lollies? I can’t tell if they’re supposed to be hard candy like lollipops or soft like gummy snakes.
The soft gummy snakes as you need to chop them up – see direction 2 in the recipe card.
