White Chocolate, Macadamia and Cranberry Rocky Road

A sweet jumble of marshmallows, macadamia nuts, dried cranberries and coconut all held together with white chocolate makes a delicious Rocky Road.

 A sweet white chocolate treat!

This is the original recipe that I adjusted to suit the ingredients and time I had to make this white chocolate treat.

      back of a wooden spoon.

This version of Rocky Road would be a lovely Christmas sweet. It's very easy to make with ingredients that are readily available. It sets quickly in the fridge so is perfect for last minute preparations. And, it would look very festive on a Christmas table or wrapped and tied with a glittery ribbon.

Do you have a favourite version of Rocky Road that you make as a treat or for gifts?



  1. What a delightful treat! You're right it would look lovely wrapped as a gift.

  2. It's very sweet, Sherri, so you can cut lots of small squares once it is set. I think it makes a nice alternative to the rice bubble/copha of White Christmas slice. Meg:)

  3. Oh Meg, that rocky road looks divine! I am going to have to try it now you have told me how. I will include it in my Christmas mix gifts :)


    1. I think it would make a delicious Christmas gift, Tania. It's so easy to make, quick with no baking required. You can add other nuts like pistachios too, as per the original recipe. Meg:)

  4. I make a similar one with Turkish delight, pistachios and rose water....yummo!

  5. Oh, yum, Lucy! What a delicious combination for your Rocky Road. I'm going to have to try your version very soon! Meg:)
