Chocolate Rocky Road Christmas Trees? What a great idea!
These Chocolate Rocky Road Christmas Trees are a repeat. Well, it was really good the last time I made it too but on one of the occasions that My Kitchen Stories was hacked it disappeared. So it has returned for more Christmas glory. Look out here it comes……
Aww isn’t it cute?
I made two different designs (and sizes) just to test it out. These look good on a Christmas table but they are also really good when you have visitors because they are really just a nice little bit of a treat with a cup of tea or coffee. They keep best somewhere a bit cool and in an airtight container or shrouded in cling wrap just to keep the nasties out. They keep in the fridge too but the chocolate gets condensation on it when you bring it out. That’s not ideal because it discolours. So somewhere cool is best.
You can decorate them in any number of ways. After they are set, and taken out of the mould all you need to do is melt some extra chocolate and stick on whatever you like using the chocolate as glue. Dip them in hundreds and thousands or whatever you like. I have used some lovely gingerbread star cookies for the top but you could use whatever you like.
I am not sure there is much more I need to say about this except hope this makes someone happy. Maybe leave one out for Santa?
