Rocky Road

Last year for my birthday I was given the Bluebells Cookbook which is an absolutely gorgeous cookbook with beautiful photos. I cannot wait to try more of the recipes from it. I was drawn to try this rocky road because visually it looked amazing. I made some to take round to a friend’s for after lunch and although it was simple to make, it tasted amazing. I then told Dad that I was giving the rest of it to my friend as part of her birthday present and he got very upset as he didn’t want it to be given away.

The textures in the rocky road are really nice, the soft marshmallows with the crunch of the pistachio, and if you can get your hands on freeze dried cherries they are crispy and pack a sour punch.
