Perfect Healthier Rocky Road

I’m always trying to improve my recipes and with this one being made regularly in my house, I have plenty of opportunity to master it πŸ˜€

This recipe has mini marshmallows in it but that’s the only refined sugar you’ll find πŸ˜€ and of course, you can leave those out if you prefer πŸ™‚

These are so creamy and delicious you can’t tell that there isn’t any refined sugar (apart from the mini marshmallows) or dairy in them!

Ingredients

Chocolate

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. sugar free caramel syrup
  • 2 tbsp. sugar free butterscotch syrup
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla essence 

Rocky Road Bits – you can mix and match these and add whatever you like πŸ™‚

  • 1-2 tbsp. cacao nibs
  • 1-2 tbsp. flaked almonds
  • 1-2 tbsp. raisins
  • 1-2 tbsp. glacier cherries
  • 1-2 tbsp. mini marshmallows (refined sugar in these)

I’ve put 1-2 tbsp. because it depends on how chunky you like your rocky road πŸ˜€

Directions

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a pan or a cup and pop in a mixing bowl and let cool slightly
  2. Slowly add the cacao powder and mix in well
  3. Add all the other ingredients mixing well into a smooth creamy chocolate consistency. Sometimes you may need to add more cacao or more coconut oil to get the right silky texture but a good few mins of stirring is needed to get a smooth and silky texture πŸ˜‹
  4. Add your rocky road ingredients and mix well
  5. Pour into silicon dishes
  6. Pop into freezer for an hour or so. You can also just pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours if you prefer it slightly softer
  7. Once hardened, they can be taken out and kept in the fridge

Hope you like the new improved recipe guys! This is definitely my new obsession! πŸ˜€

Homemade Healthier Chocolate

Those who know me know that I am not one for baking… all that measuring and counting… I am much better at chucking stuff together and hoping it comes out ok! πŸ˜€ HAHA!

However, one of my Instagram followers posted this recipe and it was so easy peasy, I dropped everything to make it right there and then! 3 ingredients for the choc and 20Β  minutes! Why wouldn’t you!!

I’ll put a sock in it now and pay it forward by sharing the recipeΒ πŸ˜‰

Ingredients (for 12 chocs if using an ice cube size tray)

  • 1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder (I used cacao for that extra healthy superfood hit)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence

Optional ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. sugar free butterscotch syrup
  • 1 tbsp. sugar free caramel syrup
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup

You can then add any other ingredients you fancy. I added marshmallows and nuts πŸ™‚

Make it

  1. Mix the ingredients in a pan until the mixture is smooth
  2. Pop into a silicone tray (I used an ice cube tray)
  3. Freeze for 15 mins or until solid
  4. Pop them out and serve
  5. Keep in the fridge so they don’t melt!

Enjoy and pay it forward! πŸ˜‰
