Rocky Road with Goji Berries and Nuts

Dish - - Dish + Puhoi -

A colour­ful ar­ray of nuts and dried fruit make for a slightly more whole­some ver­sion of a tra­di­tional Rocky Road.

500 grams dark choco­late, chopped roughly

¾ cup goji berries

¾ cup each pecans, pistachio nuts and co­conut chips

1 cup puffed rice (you could also use puffed mil­let)

To garnish freeze-dried fruit (I used rasp­ber­ries and man­darins), op­tional

Line a 23cm-square cake tin with bak­ing pa­per.

Put the choco­late in a large heat­proof bowl. Sit the bowl on top of a saucepan of sim­mer­ing wa­ter, en­sur­ing the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the wa­ter. Heat un­til the choco­late is melted and whisk un­til smooth. Stir through the re­main­ing in­gre­di­ents.

Press the mix­ture firmly into the tin. Sprin­kle with freeze-dried fruit, if us­ing. Place in the fridge to set for 2 hours.

Use a hot knife to cut into pieces. Rocky Road will last for 3 weeks in an air­tight con­tainer.
