Fabulous coconut rocky slice

Fabulous coconut rocky slice

It’s time for more bakes for Christmas. Coconut Rocky Slice is perfect when time is running short. I love any cooking or baking that’s simple, easy and quick.

The Chinese Almond Cookies that I made the other day was a real challenge but extremely happy that they turned out absolutely delicious. But I need a simple one for a change. Too much challenging recipes will just kill my joy of baking.

I had tasted Rocky Slice before but have never tried making it myself. I love its rocky look. When I saw that there’s no need for beating or baking, I jumped into it without hesitation. It was seriously easy to make, trust me, and little washing up to do. It tasted really good and would be a beautiful dessert to share with friends. I love coconut so I added that for that lovely coconut flavour. Here’s my no-bake Coconut Rocky Road Slice recipe to share.

Ingredients A
125g butter
2T cocoa powder
3T honey
1/4C sugar

Put everything into a pot to melt under low fire. Keep stirring. Turn off the fire when it’s fully melted.

Ingredients B
1C coconut
200g biscuits (any type)

Add coconut and biscuit to the butter mixture

Add coconut and biscuit to the butter mixture

Break up the biscuits into pieces and add to the above mixture together with the coconut.

Level the surface

Level the surface

Mix well and pour into a paper-lined tin. Level the surface with the back of a metal spoon.

Ingredients C (topping)
300g milk chocolate
100g marshmallows

Add the marshmallows to the melted chocolate

Add the marshmallows to the melted chocolate

In the same pot, melt the chocolate under low fire. Once it’s all melted, turn off the fire and add in the marshmallows. Give a quick stir to mix up and pour over the coconut base. Leave it to cool completely, best chilled, before cutting into smaller pieces to serve.

This is definitely one recipe that is now my favourite especially if time is running short and I need a quick dessert. A quick chill in the fridge will do the trick.

You are such a busy baker! I was given something similar yesterday, I think I’ll make some for X’mas, thanks for the recipe.

Mmm…this is really quick and easy. Must try to make this~~I think my kids will definitely love this.

cheah  on December 18th, 2009

Sounds easy to make, especially no baking needed, but can it keep long? I suppose will need to keep it in the fridge, covered.

I am a sucker for rocky roads… I think I like the biscuit underneath with all the chocolate as much as the marshmallow

Mary  on December 18th, 2009

@3hungrytummies - Haha…tryng to learn more baking. There are so many bakings around that I must join the crowd :P I’d prefer simle and easy baking if possible.

@Anncoo - When it’s fast and easy, it’s fun to make….quick satisfaction :D

@Cheah - It’s super easy. I’m not sure how long it can keep but it has no chance to keep long here :) Should work well in fridge.

@Sarah - I shared with friends and they said they love the crunchiness beneath and the soft marshmallows on top.

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on December 22nd, 2009

This looks fantastic, so many of my favourite things! I have a rocky road brownie slice that I make, which has a brownie base and rocky road top, but of course this requires a little baking. I’d be happy to email the recipe if you like, but it seems like you’ve got a good one here :)

Mary  on December 23rd, 2009

@Conor - Thanks for your lovely comment. Of course I would love to have your recipe too :) Really appreciate your kindness. A brownie bae sounds very delicious.

Hi Mary,
After much delay I was scouting around my inbox @ foodbuzz and saw all the recipes you’ve been sending me. I almost went into panic when I couldn’t find your Coconut Rocky Road Slices. From your main page when I clicked on the name I was taken to the Christmas Rainbow Cake. When I clicked on something else I got a different recipe again. So I don’t know if the internet was being weird or if you links are misdirected. I had to start on your front page and scroll all the way bag to Dec when you posted. I couldn’t link to the recipe from foodbuzz either. Just thought you’d like to know.
BUT….I have your recipe now and I am just happpppppppyyyyy cuz I am going to make those beauties. Thanks so much!

Mary  on January 16th, 2010

@Jenny - Oh dear, I’m so sorry that you had a hard time navigating my blog looking for recipes. I’ll have to check that out. I’m so glad that finally you managed to find it. In fact if you check out the RECIPES on the top bar, you can easily find it. Thanks very much for visiting.
