I know you know about rocky road, but what if I told you there was an equally as delicious version that comes out around this time of year? Because I don’t know about you, but I love me a little white chocolate version of anything, and these are just sublime.
In the winter the rocky roads tend to get covered with a little snow you see. Sounds treacherous, but luckily our friends with their glitter vans are usually on the case. But they haven’t made it to my kitchen (guess it would be weird if they did not to mention a bit messy) so my roads are officially snow-covered.
I wonder if we actually will get snow in London this Christmas. It seems to happen later and later every year and I’m sure we had it in March this year which is distinctly not cool. Snow, in my book, should be December/January, perhaps even the first week of Feb at the absolute latest, so March is definitely out of bounds.
So maybe if we all make this snowy road it will coax the snow out a little bit over Christmas. Stranger things have happened!
- 1 cup cacao butter
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup cashew butter
- Pinch of Himalayan salt
- 1/3 cup cranberries
- 1/3 cup natural liquorice, chopped into chunks
- 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
- 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
Melt the cacao butter by putting it in a bowl over a saucepan half full of water on a medium heat and stirring gently until it becomes a liquid. Remove from the heat and add in the maple syrup, cashew butter and salt and stir well.
Stir in the other ingredients, then pour the mixture into a lined baking tray or silicone mould and place in the fridge for an hour. Cut into slices and enjoy rocky road, snowy style!
