Colorful Easter Rocky Road

A colorful homemade Easter candy that contains only good things, and it couldn’t be easier. We’re calling it Easter Rocky Road and it’s the perfect thing to put in your kids easter eggs or baskets this year.

This rocky road is made from scratch using coconut oil, cocoa and honey, but if you are crunched for time, it works just as well to just melt dark chocolate. Remember to line your mold with parchment paper for an easy release, then mix or melt the chocolate together and pour into the mold. Finish by garnishing with the nuts and the dried fruit, the more the better!

No matter which recipe you choose to drive on, this is a glamorous version of Christmas’ classic rocky road. We opted for yellow and red fruits, but it is of course possible to vary the content. You may want to replace the peanuts with almonds, or mangoes with freeze-dried strawberries? Add spices like cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla or ginger to the batter? In fact, it is possible to vary this very simple chocolate candy to infinity.

Another version is to replace the coconut oil in the recipe below with cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is a little harder to get than coconut oil, but with cocoa butter the candy does not need to be stored in the fridge or freezer because the cocoa butter is hard at room temperature. We haven’t tried that version yet, but we can almost guarantee it works.

No matter which way you go, this is a fun version of the Christmas classic rocky road. We opted for yellow and red fruits, but of course go with your favorites. Perhaps you want to replace the peanuts with almonds, or mangoes with freeze-dried strawberries? Add spices like cardamom, vanilla or ginger to the batter? In fact, it is possible to vary this very simple chocolate candy to infinity.
