Here’s a great recipe for another super easy Christmas treat.  The kids will love to help with this one!  It is quick and easy and all mixes up in the one bowl.  If you would like to make your rocky road gluten free just select gluten free chocolate, marshmallows and lollies.  I used turkish delight in place of jelly lollies.  Once set, you could chop your rocky road up into bite sized pieces and wrap it in cellophane for a lovely simple home-made gift.  Kids will love to be included in some special “cooking” around this time of year.   Doing some simple home cooking is a fun way to entertain them in the lead up to Christmas… sure beats running around the shops!
