Prep 20-30 minutes + 2 hours to firm makes 16 squares.

Ingredients

  • 500g white chocolate
  • 200g vanilla and strawberry marshmellows, roughly chopped
  • 150g roasted almonds, roughly chopped
  • 20g freeze-dried strawberry pieces, plus extra for scattering
  • 200g red soft eating liquorice, chopped into small pieces

Method

  1. Grease and line a 20cm pan with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang for easy removal.

  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, pour over the chocolate and stir to coat well.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into the pan, top with the extra strawberry pieces and set aside for about 2 hours until the rocky road is firm to the touch.
