I knew something was brewing on the back of my mind. Ever since I made my first ever Rocky Road about three months ago, I've been thinking of ways to elevate the whole Rocky Road experience to another level. I love Rocky Road and I adore it in its purest form. You know, the ones with chocolate, biscuits, candied cherries and marshmallows.
There's really nothing else like it. It's a whole bunch of yummy ingredients tossed into chocolate. Nothing less and nothing more...until now!
You see, I knew I had to do this soon. I've been thinking about this for too long. Dare I add non-traditional ingredients into the. Is? How about adding cranberries and raisins instead of cherries? Would people criticize my addition of Oreo cookies? This went on for weeks on end and it was time. Time to see if my insane Rocky road would taste as good as I imagined they would be.
So I spent a good 2 hours at my local supermarket to gather up stuff that I thought would be awesome in a Rocky Road and I tried to be as untraditional as I could. I went for those Oreos and M&Ms, cranberries and huge pumpkin-flavored marshmallows. Seriously? I thought to myself. But then I immediately thought, "Why the hell not?"
I had a lot of fun with this one. And although it seemed like I chose things randomly without a thought, that's not entirely true. I did think about how the chosen candies would taste together and whether any flavors would clash with one another. I also made sure to choose things that would add some interesting textures to the finished product.
In the end though, the main thing is to just have fun with this and choose whatever your heart desires. And if you come up with one that was just too awesome for words, make sure to share it with us in the comments down below.
