Beautiful rocky road covers all bases: It’s sweet, creamy, chewy and crunchy. Usually it’s pink and white and dark chocolate combined, but we’ve decided to get the blues today in the best possible way. Here’s our summery Candy Bar Sydney Blue Rocky Road recipe with white chocolate instead. It’s easy peasy and takes 10 minutes to make, and probably about two minutes to eat! Marshmallows are available in an increasingly wide variety of pretty pastel colours these days, including green and yellow so let your imagination run riot. Heart-shaped marshmallows would also look very elegant. Stacked up on a fancy plate, beautiful Blue Rocky Road will take the cake at a candy buffet.
The Simple Method:
Next, “skin” the blue rocky candy crystal sticks carefully, so they won’t fly all over the kitchen bench and floor! The beautiful crystals are brittle and need delicate handling. Then mix the marshmallows, coconut and almonds in a bowl.
When it’s melted pour the chocolate into the bowl of ingredients. Mix only until the marshmallows, almonds and coconut are coated. You don’t want to melt the marshmallows. This step is very important as something magical is about to happen.
Pour into a square pan lined with baking paper. You can sprinkle the crumbled Cotton Candy Rock Candy Crystal Sticks on top now, or simply sprinkle them over when you’ve cut it up later. Rock candy crystal sticks reflect the light and give the rocky road a super glamorous look. And they add a whole lot more crunch!
Here comes the alchemy…
You will notice that the pastel-coloured marshmallows have become a much more vivid shade. It’s one of life’s mysteries. We can’t explain it and there’s been no digital trickery in processing the images. We only know that Blue Rocky Road looks fabulous and tastes delicious! Our staff demolished it in no time at all. What a scene stealer on a candy buffet.
Happy cooking and bon appetit!
