Rocky Road ...

 Okay, I am officially in the spirit of Christmas now!  I made Rocky Road which is so easy!  In a bowl, add chopped peanuts, shredded coconut, raspberry jubes (or chopped up lolly snakes would work) and mini marshmallows.  Pour over a large quantity of melted, good chocolate (mine came from Haigh's which is a South Australia icon).
 Now this lot is actually Bumpy Road (for my fussy girl, Bri) - she doesn't like nuts or coconut so I just did marshmallows and chocolate.  She declared it sensational!
THIS is Rocky Road!  I ate one piece then bagged in up in cello bags ready for gift giving.  I made need to make some more!  Pistachios would be great in this too.
I am finished work for 5 whole days now so the baking/preparing frenzy begins today!

The List

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
Shortbread (snowflake/tree shapes) & Cherry Shortbreads
Iced Gingerbread biscuits
Gingerbread Reindeers (for my little great nieces and nephews)
Fudge Spoon Suckers - stay tuned
Bread rolls
Homemade Icecream
Stuffing Muffins (recipe here)
Cook Turkey rolls (frozen)
Make dressing for salad - will share soon
Tuesday (Christmas) morning
Assemble large Tossed Salad
Assemble Watermelon & Fetta salad (with white balsamic glaze) - recipe here from Julie Goodwin
(I actually picked up a bottle of White Balsamic Glaze so I don't need to do the vinegar/sugar bit)
Wish me luck!
