  • Leave to in a cool place to set completely. If it's s a hot day put it in the fridge for one hour to set, then remove to prevent M&M's from faiding.
  • Cut into pieces and store in an airtight container, or wrap up in pretty celephane bags tied with ribbon for gifting. Merry Christmas!


  • The recipe includes making and chocolate melting time.  It does not include the time needed for the chocolate to set before you cut up the rocky road.
  • Chocolate candy such as M&Ms and Smarties can color fade if you leave them in the fridge for too long!  If it's too hot to set on the bench only put it in the fridge for one hour, then remove it.  
  • If worst comes to worst and your candy Does fade, I have successfully repainted the color with food coloring and a clean, fine paintbrush.
