Happy Easter from Waterchoice

06 April 2023

Easter is almost upon us, and we are preparing for the Easter Bunny’s big arrival.  The kids are excited, and to be honest, so are the adults.  It is the one day a year where it is not a sin to overindulge in chocolate!  Glorious chocolate!

We want to share on of our favourite recipes with you for ROCKY ROAD!

Did you know that many think that traditional Rocky Road is actually an Australian invention?!  It is thought that when sweets arrived in Australia melted from their long journey from Europe, rather than throw out the “damaged” sweets, they would mix them together with melted chocolate to hide the imperfections. Not 100% sure that is entirely the truth, but hey, we are willing to claim the honoured title.

Home made Rocky Road is so simple to make, and it is far better than any store bought version from the supermarket.  We hope you give this one a try.

Rocky Road – Waterchoice Style


  • Marshmallows – mix of white and pink
  • Lolly snakes or raspberries
  • Salted peanuts
  • Shredded coconut
  • Milk chocolate
  1. Chop up the larger ingredients into smaller bite size pieces.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate in a mixing bowl
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, 20 seconds at a time in the microwave.  Make sure to stir the chocolate in between.
  4. Pour the chocolate over the goodies in the mixing bowl, and stir until gooey chocolate is covering every piece.
  5. Pour the mixture into a slice tray.  Be sure to line the tray with baking paper so it doesn’t stick.
  6. Push down on the top with a spoon to make it even.
  7. Set in the fridge.
  8. Cut into squares to serve once set.

And there you have it.  The original recipes call for glace cherries, but the kids much prefer the red lollies.  And it is so simple to make that the mixtures and possibilities are endless.

Just be sure to drink plenty of filtered water after your day of indulgence.  Your stomach, digestive system and skin will thank you for it!

We wish you all a very Happy Easter, however you choose to celebrate.  We hope that it is a time of happiness and a time for family.
