Now imagine a Christmas tree with a nice big star on top then build it using this recipe.

Rocky Road Christmas Tree

1 cup cooking chocolate chips
1 cup marshmallows, roughly chopped
1 cup lollies of your choice (anything easy to cut up, snakes work well)
1 cup white chocolate chips
Hundreds and thousands, mini M&Ms, Smarties or other small lollies for decoration

Using some Baking Paper, cut a piece big enough say about 25 cm square or bigger and roll into a cone shape mould, secure with a tape. Can always cut the size of cone afterwards to suit.
1. Melt the milk chocolate chips in a bowl over a pot of boiling water or in the microwave. Cut up the marshmallow and sweets of your choice and place these in the now melted chocolate. Stir lightly to mix and then pour it all into the mould. Secure the mould by standing it in a glass or a jug or a piece of polystyrene, and put it in the fridge for 20 minutes or until firm.
2. Meanwhile melt the white chocolate in a bowl or in the microwave. Remove the now hard rocky road Christmas tree from the mould and even out the base with a knife if needed.
3. Randomly and unevenly pipe or pour the white chocolate on the top quarter of the tree to resemble snow. Place the lollies in the chocolate to look like decorations.

The star on top is simply cut a piece of flat white chocolate or melt your own shape and add whatever to look like a star.

My take on rocky road
I line a slice pan with cling film. Toss over it chopped up marshmallows, roasted (unsalted) peanuts, chopped up glace cherries, some sultanas or raisins ~ or instead of the last two, use mixed fruit to get the fruit and the colour ~ can also use chopped up winegums. Then pour over melted chocolate. Chill for a few hours, peel off the clingfilm and cut or break up. Yummy. posted by mindi1

Very similar to mine. Here is the recipe
125g butter-softened, 375g dark chocolate melts, 3dps golden syrup, 200g Krispie biscuits, 100g marshmellows. Gently melt choc, butter and golden syrup (I used microwave, med high for 1 min at a time until melted. It does cook, just stir after each minute. 2-1/2 mins should be fine). Crush biscuits in a plastic bag and just roughly crumble. You want some bits to be a bit chunky. Fold the remaining ingredients (marshmellows and biscuits) into the choc. mixture. I also added some red cherries and unsalted peanuts, but you can put what you like. Mix it all through and put on a lined try (glad wrap is good) Chill overnight and then break into bits. posted by clair4

This one is a sure fire favourite for everyone who tries it:

White chocolate rocky road:

Melt good quality white chocolate (I use Whittakers)
Add equal quantities of peanut butter.
Throw in some chopped nuts (optional), rice bubbles (optional but it gives it a lovely texture) and some mini marshmallows.

Pour into tin to set, cut while softish. It is the consistency of fudge - doesnt set hard. VERY nice.

I made it a couple of times way back when. I just used the marshmallow recipe found in the Marshmallow Shortcake in the Edmond's Recipe book, cut it up into chunks of varying sizes and mixed with melted chocolate. Way back then I had never heard of cooking chocolate or dark chocolate. I just used Cadbury milk chocolate. Nowadays I'd use Nestle's real chocolate melts or Whittakers 50% chocolate block.

Even way back then I thought it was sickly sweet, hence why I only made it twice and then never again. The bought stuff is sweeter again and it is pretty disgusting because it is made with palm oil chocolate. So not only is it sweeter than made-from-scratch at home but it has a disgusting slimy fat mouth feel.

My elderly Mum does not eat milk or dark chocolate - only white 'chocolate', so 2-3 years ago I made her some Rocky Road and from memory this is the recipe I used although because Mum has never really been keen on them I don't think I used peanuts but I do recall using pistachios which were something new to her. I was assured that the Rocky Road was very much enjoyed and very more-ish.

150g pink and white marshmallows
100g fruit jubes
500g white chocolate
½ cup each of blanched peanuts and pistachio nuts, all toasted

Roughly chop the marshmallows and jubes.
Gently melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Make sure that the bowl does not touch the water and have the water simmering not boiling, ensure that the chocolate is just warm and not too hot.
Mix the marshmallows, jubes and nuts in a bowl. Pour over the chocolate and quickly mix. Pour into a lined 21cm square cake tin and refrigerate until firm.
Chop the rocky road into bite-sized pieces. :-))
