There’s only one thing I don’t like about store bought rocky road, and that’s those fake sugary glace cherries they use. Bleh. Make your own I say, and use chunks of delicious Cherry Ripe instead. So much better.

This is for my friend Annaliese x

I add coconut to give it that real Darrel Lea taste. You can use any nut you want, toasted hazelnuts or almonds go nicely. Substitute the bounty for turkish delight or other chocolate bar. Pop it in a clear bag and tie a pretty bow around for Christmas treats.

Tip: Cut into triangles using a warm knife

    Instead of glace cherries I use the Ripe Raspberry or Red Snakes confectionery. I chop them into pieces and add to the mixture with almond slivers.
