Rocky road with free download 'You rock!' gift labels

My hubby is a confirmed rocky-road-a-holic.  This is usually his only request from Santa in his stocking and his go-to rocky road is Darrell Lea.  Well it was, until now.  I made this a few weeks ago and needless to say, it didn't last long.  I'm not normally a rocky road fan but there is something to be said about fresh rocky road.  

Because it's so easy and such a crowd pleaser I decided to make an extra batch last weekend and packaged them up for my colleagues today.  It was a hit, with one nameless person eating all of theirs before lunch!

I also had enough to give to my girls' teachers in a bar form, and will be adding the labels 'you rock' as you can see below - and I've saved you the time to create yours - you can download the A4 sheet of labels here.

1 packet pascall marshmallows, cut in half
1 packet raspberries, cut in half
1.5 cups unsalted peanuts
500g nestle choc melts.

Add cut marshmallow and raspberries in a bowl, add unsalted peanuts, mix.

Melt chocolate in the microwave by putting the chocolate in a glass or heatproof bowl (make sure it's dry) and heat on 50% heat in 1 minute intervals stirring in between each minute. Should be melted at the 4 minute mark. Important that you mix in between or the chocolate will burn. 

Line a baking tray with baking paper, ensuring the paper raises up at the sides. Then pour the marshmallow/raspberry/peanut mix into the chocolate and mix quickly.

Pour into the baking tray. Press into the sides to ensure you have an even layer.

 Leave to cool on the bench for an hour before slicing and serving.

Cut into bars or bite-size pieces.

Place in an airtight container either in the fridge or a cool place.  Gift in boxes, preserving jars or paper bags.  You can buy the ones below on Ebay  Labels can be downloaded for free from here

I will include this in my X-Mas chorvah! (chrovah means anything like list, event, etc.)
