I am generally not a lazy person but at the last minute when someone asks you to whip up something for dessert and you just don’t have the time to make something utterly fabulous like you normally would, it’s OK to cheat and make something easy.
The past week I’d been having serious cravings for Tim Tams (for all you non-Aussie readers they are pretty much our national biscuit because they are just so damn good). After being asked to whip up a dessert for my brother’s farewell dinner (who is off to London to work for a year!) I started searching for easy tim tam recipes. Eventually I was lead to this recipe here, which was called a chocolate slice. It looked easy enough so I decided that’s what I’d make.
You may notice that I’ve now called it Tim Tam Rocky Road and that’s purely because my “slice” needed some alterations and somehow turned into a faux-rocky road. Potato potato, you know? It’s seriously foodgasmic either way.
500g dark chocolate
200g white marshmallows
475g Turkish delight (6 x 55g bars)
2 x 250g Tim Tams
300mL thickened cream
1. Melt chocolate in a saucepan over medium heat.
2. Roughly chop the marshmallows, Turkish delights and tim tams.
3. Add the chopped ingredients and the cream into the melted chocolate and stir well.
4. Spoon the mixture in a flat tray and allow to set in the fridge for a few hours.
How can chocolate, tim tams, marshmallows and turkish delight mixed together ever go wrong? This rocky road is crunchy and chewy and highly decadent. You probably won’t be able to stop eating it and will end up in a sugar coma but you’ll definitely have fun in the process.
What do you put in your home-made rocky road?

This looks seriously tasty; I’m going to try an Americanized version. Is a tim tam, I wonder, anything like a choclate covered graham???
You can use any chocolate biscuit really!
Hey, this seriously looks amazing. I only ate it one time and I loved it. Just wondering though: how do you find time to bake? I always plan to bake, but then I barely do it :( -Joy
It’s often quite difficult to find the time I agree! So really any sneaky hour or two I’ll try get into the kitchen :) I mostly do my cooking on the weekends though because it’s when I have most time!
Great idea, it sounds really wonderful. I love no bake desserts.
I agree! So much easier haha!
Sounds delicious. I love Tim Tams even though I’m not Australian.
I feel sorry for everyone who can’t get Tim tams in their local supermarket haha! They are too yummy!
Oh my gosh, these look AH-MAZING! They may be cheating in terms of the time it takes to make them, but they still look divine. Sometimes the gooey, sticky mess is the best. I’m wondering if you have tried any other bars/sweets other than Turkish Delight? I’m not a big Turkish Delight fan.
They still were oh so yummy! Haha I totally agree about the gooey sticky messes! I would say you can put anything else in it! I’d be keen next time to try a cherry ripe or boost bar!
Oh yes, they’re great suggestions. I’ll have to try it some day! Thanks again x
