Wedding Rocky Road Recipe
Hi, I’m Clare and I blog over at A Wee Bit of Cake.
I’m a Belfast girl engaged to a Bradford boy (aka Mr T) and we now live together in Otley; a wee town on the edge of Leeds. At the moment we are currently planning our wedding and having a cake table was very important to me.
I love to bake, I love cake and I wanted to express this on our wedding day. If I had endless time I would be baking all sorts for the wedding but I need to be realistic in what I can do and what I can easily make ahead of time.
Rocky Road has always been a popular treat when we have had parties in the past so I knew it would be ideal for the wedding – it’s quick and easy with limited mess. Weddings are special and I knew this rocky road needed to be special too by glitzing it up a bit so it tied in with the colour scheme.
I changed the bottom layer of the rocky road to purple with some food colouring and added some silver leaf to the top for some extra glam. I brought this into work to share with my colleagues and one said “Clare, why is there foil on the top of this?” He was not convinced about the silver leaf at all. Some people just don’t get my need for sparkle!
Thankfully the rocky road went down very well – I may have eaten more than one piece oops! It was so quick and easy to make I’ll definitely make it again to remind me of my big day.
Wedding Rocky Road
500g white chocolate
75g Rice Krispies
75g mini marshmallows
100g dried blueberries
Purple food gel (I used the Sugarflair grape violet one)
Line an 18cm square tin with clingfilm.
Melt 300g of the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
Once melted stir in the food colouring until it has reached your desired colour adding more if required.
Stir in the marshmallows, rice krispies and blueberries.
Pour into the prepared tin, leave to cool then pop in the fridge for 1 hour.
After an hour take the rocky road out of the fridge.
Melt the remaining 200g white chocolate using the same process as before.
Once melted pour over the set rocky road.
Scatter over the purple sprinkles and silver leaf.
Leave to cool then place in the fridge for a further hour.
Once set cut into equal pieces and enjoy!
