Rocky road inspired slice

This was a recipe I made as a small Christmas treat for some friends. My intention had been to make my own marshmallows to make this slice, but time ran away from me so I needed to be a little creative and use something else instead.

I opted for macadamias. While not tasting anything like marshmallows, they looked the part and macadamias are super tasty in their own right!

It doesn’t taste 100% like rocky road – more like the slice gives a nod to rocky road without all the sugar 🙂 .

It does however taste super delicious and was easy to make in a large amount to give to others.
