Christmas isn't really Christmas without some overly indulgent Nigella recipe. When I was young and growing up in the middle of the Lincolnshire countryside we used to spend Christmas Eve on rotation at the house of one of three families in the village. One of these was the house of my best friend from Primary School and the highlight was the fact I knew her Mum would make a Rocky Road Log. It was so delicious and I used to always sneak back to the table for a second helping. What I find weird about Rocky Road is that I love the glace cherries contained in it but can't bear them normally.
I've always meant to enter the Forever Nigella challenges hosted by Maison Cupcake but never got round to it. When I saw the Christmas challenge however I knew straight away what Nigella recipe I would make - her festive version of Rocky Road. Of course it's not quite as good as the one of my memory but a very close second.
Here is the link to the recipe on nigella.com.
