I have the hardest time figuring out gifts for Fathers Day. Our secret message in a bottle worked a treat, but now to think of something new. I spend hours brainstorming, what does he like? Then it hits me. DUH! He loved our rocky road with red frogs and toblerone, (just minus the red frogs and add a few of his favourite things).

A million thanks to Jackie from My Little Bookcase for sharing her ‘secret’ ingredients, pistachio, or rice bubbles, when she makes rocky road for kids. I shared this with hubby as we gobbled down our last batch of rocky road. His eyes lit up at the suggestion of pistachio and rice bubbles. (I didn’t tell him that rice bubbles were for kids, because I thought it sounded down right delicious too!).

As you can tell by the close proximity of my two rocky road posts, published less than a month apart from each other, I have truly been converted into a rocky road fan. You basically get to mix your favourite things you love to nibble on, in chocolate. What’s not to love?!

After something to make for Fathers Day? Create some rocky road, just for him. Get a mix of his favourite nibbles, fold it in some chocolate, this part is really important – clean out that mixing bowl, let it set, cut it up, restrain yourself from devouring it. It’s so simple (and delicious).

A note of warning about our Fathers Day Rocky Road recipe. It is packed to the brim with those yummy nibbles – just the way hubby likes it. We used just enough melting chocolate to fold everything together and set it in a small cake tin to make sure we could cut out nice chunky pieces.

Best fathers day ever, is what I imagine hubby saying when he devours this rocky road.
