Oh my goodness! Chai Spiced Rocky Road, have you ever seen anything like it?! Imagine your favourite chocolate rocky road, filled with nuts, dried fruit and marshmallows. Now, imagine it again but with a chai flavour all throughout…. yes….
This chai flavoured infused rocky road bark is going to make a heavy appearance in all of your homes this festive season, I can just feel it! 😉
If you are a lover of chai and of course chocolate, I urge you to whip up a batch of this 100% deliciousness. It features some classic rocky road ingredients, including hazelnuts and dried cranberries. Blended through the melted chocolate is a few of those traditional chai spices including cardamom, cinnamon, clove and ginger.
Infusing the dark chocolate with the chai spices ensures you get the chai hit with every single bite.
I decided to get a little funky and sprinkle the small marshmallows on top of the mixture as opposed to mixing them through the chocolate mix. Why? Well because I saw a photo on Pinterest with the marshmallows on top of a slice and it really resonated with me, haha!
I know you will LOVE this chai spiced rocky road bark just as much as I have been snacking on it all week long, enjoy! xPrint
