Unicorn Rocky Road

Remember that game you stumble across at School Fete’s or raffles where you have to guess how many sweets are in a jar? I feel like this recipe is the food version of just that. A colourful and magical take on my Oreo Rocky Road, this super delicious treat is bursting with almost every sweet you can think of and it’s made better by all the pretty colours, swoon. 

Made up of white chocolate, flumps, mini marshmallows, Oreos, Dolly Mixtures and Party Rings, this dessert isn’t short on calories or sugar but it tastes sensational and looks just as sassy as it sounds thanks to some pastel gel colours adding to the array of pastel colours. It’s the perfect party number to bring along to girls night.

Note: To create the pretty unicorn colouring of the Rocky Road I use food colouring gels. They are much better than liquid as you can control the colour you want and only need the tiniest amount. Just dip a cocktail stick into the pot of food colouring and work it into the chocolate/icing adding more gradually if you need to.

Ingredients (makes 12 Rocky Road pieces using a 20cm square tin): 

  • 400g white chocolate
  • 80g Dolly Mixtures
  • 120g of crushed Oreos
  • 120g mini marshmallows
  • 2 large flumps, cut into pieces
  • 2 bags of mini party rings
  • Coloured sprinkles
  • Gel food colours in Rose and Baby Blue

Method:

  1. Line a square brownie tin with butter and cling film and set aside. Break the Oreos and half of the amount of party rings into small chunks and place all of the biscuit crumbs into a mixing bowl along with the mini marshmallows and Dolly Mixtures
  2. Begin to melt the white chocolate in a microwave, checking every few seconds. Once it has thoroughly melted, place a quarter of the white chocolate in one bowl and another quarter in another. Add the pink food gel to one and the blue to the other – not too much, see tip above to achieve a pastel colour
  3. Pour three quarters of the white chocolate over the biscuits, Dolly Mixtures and marshmallows (leaving the rest and the coloured chocolate for later) so the fillings begin to stick together and are suitably coated. Pour into the lined tin and spread so the tin is completely covered. Next, add tablespoons of each chocolate (the coloured and the remaining white) into random spots until all has been used.Spread again to create a slight marble effect and gently tap the tin onto your surface so all the chocolate seeps to the bottom
  4. Press the flumps and remaining pieces of Party Rings on top of the Rocky Road before covering in sprinkles. Place in the fridge for an hour to set or until ready to serve then cut into pieces

Enjoy! Nic x
