Who here loves rocky road? Me too and I know this one is a mouthful to say but Caramel White Chocolate Rocky Road Slice is all of those amazing things and more.
- Caramel – from Rolos and the flavour of the baked white chocolate
- White chocolate – see above
- Rocky Road Slice – a type of slice made up of chocolate marshmallows and nuts.
- Plus, a little salt because, well, salted caramel is life and for flavour balance.
I teased this recipe in my caramelised white chocolate post and this is now my favourite rocky road recipe.
While you can buy it, I urge you to make your own caramel chocolate. It’s very easy and just needs you to give it a stir every ten minutes over the course of an hour, that’s it.
Once that’s done, add some marshmallows, cashews, rolos and a little salt. Give it a mix and pour it into a loaf tin and leave it in the fridge to set and bam, caramel rolo rocky road coming at ya.
If you do caramelise your own chocolate, you can make it months in advance if you like. It will store in the fridge nearly indefinitely, like regular chocolate would.
Rocky Road is a favourite no bake chocolate slice the world over for its simplicity, flavour and giftability. This recipe makes a small batch of 8 slices, perfect for a little gift or a week of dessert.
Tips for white chocolate rocky road
- You can use regular white chocolate, uncaramelized but it won’t have the caramel flavour.
- You can use a store-bought caramel white chocolate like Valrhona Dulcey or Cadbury Caramilk.
- Vanilla or chocolate flavoured marshmallows work the best with the caramel flavour.
- Any runny caramel stuffed chocolate candy will work in place of the rolos.
- If using chocolate from it’s ‘set’ state, melt it in the microwave in 30 second increments, using a metal spoon to stir it very well between each. It should take no more that 90 seconds to 2 minutes to get it melted. It shouldn’t be overly hot to the touch.
- Use a sharp knife to cut the slice so that it doesn’t crack and break up. You can heat the knife under hot water, then dry completely, if it isn’t super sharp.
- Take the rocky road out of the fridge 15-20 minutes prior to cutting – this will also help to stop it from cracking.
- Rocky road will keep well in the fridge for a month or more, stored in an airtight container.
- Rocky road can be frozen as well, best done by wrapping each piece individually in plastic wrap then all into an airtight container – this will stop any freezer smells from getting into them.
With Fathers Day really not that far away, caramel white chocolate rocky road, with it’s caramel flavour, gooey rolos and salty kick is an absolute perfect gift for dad. Or hey, just make it for yourself – you deserve it.
