I personally don't have much of a sweet tooth, so this rocky road recipes is Vicki's (the real sweet lover), a recipe she original got from a good friend not so long ago.

Rocky road is rich, no doubt about it and a great treat after dinner, or as a quick indulgence at any time. The big advantage is the no baking, although a little cooking is still involved. According to wikipedia it is an Australian creation in 1853 (at least the earliest version recorded), a surprise to me to be honest. These days the Americans make claim to it (of course) and there are various version from around the world using different types of nuts, dried fruits, white chocolate and rice crisppies as additions or substitutions.

This is a simple recipe Vicki throws together on occasion, try it and play with it, create a version that works for you.
