This time of the year is all about edible Christmas gifts, so I’m sharing a recipe I trot out this time every year. The white chocolate, pistachios and cranberries give this rocky road a yuletide feel.
Christmas Rocky Road
Yield 3 jars
This simple recipe is a perfect edible Christmas gift. Just be sure to give it away quickly – I’ve found it evaporates out of our fridge at a rapid rate!
200g macadamia nuts
⅓ cup desiccated coconut
180g dried cranberries
500g good quality white chocolate
Roughly chop the macadamias. Halve the marshmallows. Combine the nuts, cranberries and coconut in a bowl. Stir in the coconut.
Line two loaf tins with baking paper.
Melt the chocolate and stir it into the nut mixture. Mix well – the coconut tends to find it’s way to the bottom of the bowl. Spoon the mixture into the two loaf pans. Place a piece of baking paper on the top of each loaf pan and press the mixture down.
Refrigerate until set.
Slice into cubes and give it away as quickly as possible!

If there's ever a time to honour home cooks, it's Christmas. The holiday season is a time filled with tradition and food. Home cooking is synonymous with making memories; years after home cooks have hung up their aprons, the memories of their cooking remain.
Here's to home cooks.....
Forgive me, I'm more of a cook than a poet!
