Rocky Road Christmas Wreath Instructions
Butter up your bundt tin in preparation for step # 3 – be generous with the butter! The last thing you want is for the wreath to get stuck!
1) In a large bowl, place the marshmallows, peanuts, coconut, jaffas, and chocolate coated peanuts. Mix with a wooden spoon.
2) Melt the dark chocolate either over a double boiler or in the microwave (if doing it in the microwave be careful not to burn it!)
3) Wait for melted chocolate to cool slightly and then pour over all other ingredients. Stir together immediately and transfer to a butter lined 24 cm bundt tin.
4) Place in fridge to set for a few hours.
5) Remove from fridge and allow to come to room temp (not melt if it’s hot where you are!) Remove from bundt tin. DON’T FREAK OUT if it doesn’t come straight away if you have used enough butter it will come!
6) Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the wreath with backward and forwards motions to create a rough zigzag (see pics) Sprinkle over additional coconut and crushed peanuts and use white chocolate to ‘glue’ the jaffas around the wreath, evenly spaced.
7) To present, lay on a flat board and place bright red or green ribbon tied in a bow at the top-center.
