Festive Triple Peppermint Rocky Road

I know, I know, another Rocky Road recipe! but I just can't help myself! plus I made this for our games night the other week, alongside 4 other desserts and so it's always handy to have a no bake treat on hand when there's a lot of baking to be done! 

Of course I went overboard on the peppermint! How could I not when I had all these amazing goodies from the States I wanted to use up! I even had a bag of chocolate peppermint marshmallows too but I drew the line and decided the marshmallows should just be regular to balance out all the minty-ness! 
So I chopped up the white chocolate peppermint m&m's, the mint truffle Hershey's kisses and the candy cane Hershey's kisses, stirred in some rice krispies and mini marshmallows, drowned them all in some rich milk chocolate and refrigerate for an hour to form one tasty festive treat!

Festive Triple Peppermint Rocky Road:
Makes 16
From Cupcake Crazy Gem

450g milk chocolate (for eating, not baking)
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup candy cane kisses
1/2 cup mint truffle kisses
1/2 cup white chocolate peppermint m&m's
1 cup rice krispies
150g mini marshmallows

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof glass bowl, set above a pan of boiling water.  
Stir in the vegetable oil.
Chop the candy cane kisses, truffle kisses and m&m's in half.
Once the chocolate has cooled, add those into the bowl along with the rice krispies and mini marshmallows.  (I reserved back a handful of each ingredient to press into the surface of the Rocky Road to make it look pretty). 
Pour the mixture into your prepared tin.  If you want, press extra ingredients into the surface of the chocolate.

Put in the fridge for an hour until firm.  
Eat and enjoy!


  1. Wow! Looks amazing and I do love chocolate and mint. I've never actually made rocky road before, but definitely need to give this a go! :)

  2. Awesome recipe! I bet my boys will love these rocky road; My hubby just came from San Diego last week & bought 4 packets of peppermint but I've not come across white chocolate M & M peppermint though. Will add in his next shopping list for USA! LOL

  3. They look delicious! I am very envious of your peppermint product stash, the UK is severely lacking in the festive sweets department :(

  4. You can never have too many rocky road recipes! You're killing me with these M&Ms - I've only just got my hands on mint and pretzel ones and now you're busting out WHITE CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT?!?!?! Anyway, have a lovely Christmas! x

  5. These look divine and I am so jealous of the treats you can buy over there! I hope life is fantastic for you and I am glad to have 'met' you this year. Sorry I have been remiss in contact lately - lots going on! Festive greetings to you!

  6. This is a lovely twist on rocky the addition of peppermint! I bet this would all be gone in a flash...rocky road is everyone's favourite! Wishing you a very merry Christmas! :-)
