Gourmet Ruby Road

Someone was asking in the Facebook group about good rocky road recipes! What? Does this only appear in a cookbook I asked myself. Not anymore!

I personally am not a RR fan, unless it is this one! Homemade is always outstanding, and you will need to be pretty dedicated to make this one AND the marshmallows AND the shortbread...but hey, you're my peeps and I know someone will! (YAY) However, you can always resort to bought marshmallows and Walkers shortbread...the only substitute I can allow!

The reason I use the microwave with Ruby chocolate is that it is easier to control the melting point rather than using the Thermomix. The beautiful colour can go quickly with Ruby if overheated. I also use plastic bowls and silicone spatulas to work with all chocolate as it doesn’t keep the heat in the bowl itself, which also gives you more control. If you are making this recipe without Ruby, you can certainly melt the chocolate in the Thermomix, I would say about 8 min/45°C/speed 1. You may need more or less time than that depending on the quality of the chocolate you use. (You know what I think about that one!! Go the Callebaut!)

Grease and line a small baking tray. Set aside.


Place the ruby chocolate, coconut oil and vanilla extract into a plastic bowl and into the microwave on full power (900w) for 1.5 minutes. Remove and stir vigorously using your Tenina silicone spatula.


If the chocolate just has a few solid pieces left, press them into the liquid chocolate using the spatula. The trick here is not to over heat the ruby as this will cause it to lose colour.


Place the melted chocolate in the bowl on top of your Thermomix or Drop scale to weigh in the remaining ingredients. Stir gently to fully coat everything with the melted chocolate.


Spread into the prepared tin and refrigerate for several hours.


Use a really sharp knife to cut into squares. Wrap and gift away!
