I love rocky road! I only ever make it at Christmas! One year, I created one with raspberry jubes, marshmallows and roasted/salted peanuts. It was delicious but so sweet. I don’t mind a lolly or two sporadically, especially at Christmas, but these days I prefer my sweet treats to be a little more wholesome.
I like to think that every time I eat, I have an opportunity to nourish my body. I don’t see this philosophy as never eating sugar or cutting out certain foods, I see it from a positive perspective and try to include nutrient rich foods as often as I can. So when it comes to Christmas and making rocky road for the celebrations, rather than stressing about the chocolate part of this treat, which you really can’t leave out, I fill my rocky road with my favourite whole foods!
