Christmas isn’t Christmas without Chocolate Orange. This Chocolate Orange Rocky Road is the perfect festive treat filled with as much chocolate orange as possible!
Chocolate Orange Rocky Road means it’s Christmas!
Chocolate Orange is delicious anytime of year, but it is almost essential at Christmas. For as long as I can remember, we have always bought my Mum a Terry’s Chocolate Orange at Christmas. Then as my sister and I grew up, we each bought her one so she ended up with quite a few to keep her stocked for the rest of the year!
Chocolate orange is one of my favourite flavour combinations. I’m not generally a fan of fruit and chocolate but there is definitely something about chocolate orange that makes it irresistible. There are lots of chocolate orange flavoured chocolates and biscuits available, even more so around Christmas. If you can’t find one of the ingredients below though, just substitute it with something you fancy or increase the quantities of another ingredient.
Simple, delicious and great to make ahead of time
Rocky Road is such a simple and delicious treat that anyone can make. This Chocolate Orange Rocky Road is a great recipe for children to help with. They would only need supervision melting the chocolate as the biscuits can be crushed and broken by hand. It only takes a couple of minutes to assemble and then can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for at least a week. This is a great recipe to make when you have a spare minute over Christmas that can be stored ready to bring out when you have guests.
People tend to get a lot of chocolate at Christmas. If like my Mum you get a few chocolate oranges, this is a good way to use them up! That is if you don’t just want to sit there and munch your way through them.
A tasty homemade gift
As well as making a tasty treat over the festive season, this Chocolate Orange Rocky Road makes a great gift for your loved ones. These days people like to give homemade gifts. It is a thoughtful present as it typically takes more time and effort which the gift receiver can appreciate. This makes a particularly good gift because it doesn’t have to be eaten straight away. This also means you don’t have to rush to make it on the day you want to give it.
