Rocky road slice – with chocolate, jellies, coconut and nuts.  An awesome combination that’s gluten and dairy-free!

My family had a craving for some rocky-road recently.  Finding the necessary ingredients (and recipe) while we were in Chile and in the US was challenging, especially considering my gluten intolerance.  My kids found some jelly raspberries, just on the off-chance, at one of the supermarkets, but the fine writing said they contained gluten.  I ended up using some jelly bears and cutting them in two – it seems that it doesn’t really matter what lollies/candies you use, as long as they are nice and soft.  I also used flaked almonds rather than peanuts, again just whatever you have lying around seems to be ok.  I have also made this (with extremely great success) using cranberries … much to my daughter Abby’s disgust (she doesn’t like dried fruit in any shape, size or form!).

Note that in the US the jelly raspberries just don’t seem to exist.  The closest I’ve come is finding some gummy worms and chopping them very fine.  And using cranberries.  Abby just has to deal with it!

I also tried having half milk and half white chocolate, but my inexperience in mixing these together removed the desired marble effect – mental note for next time – mix much less!
