Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without rocky road. Thanks to my father’s obsession, rocky road has been a Christmas necessity in my family since I can remember. And it’s usually one of the first festive delights I make to get me into the Christmas spirit. Opening the fridge to see a platter stacked high with large shards of deep dark chocolate studded with squishy marshmallows, roasted nuts and glace ruby red cherries lets me instantly know the season of joyful overindulgence has certainly begun.
This year’s rocky road recipe comes from the queen of fabulous overindulgence herself, the beautiful Nigella Lawson. You won’t be surprised to hear that one of my many loves in watching the wonderful cooking programs offered up by the food channel and this year’s Nigella Christmas special featured this gorgeous and incredibly decadent rocky road recipe.
