Healthy Dark Chocolate Rocky Road

with Natural Gelatin


Why Make Healthy Rocky Road?

This yummy healthy rocky road is super delish and super versatile! Our take on a traditional rocky road includes homemade marshmallows made from Nutra Organics natural gelatin, we cut the refined sugars and added in some health benefits, because hey, that’s what we do. This dark chocolate rocky road is so easy to throw together using all the pantry leftovers, that jar of lonely nuts has finally found its purpose. This recipe makes a pretty decent batch and is easily halved for a more moderate portion if not shared with a few friends (or if you have no self-control like us). Add some Collagen Beauty Caramel to turn this into a delicious salted caramel rocky road recipe.

The Benefits of Natural Gelatin

Natural gelatin, more specifically, Nutra Organics Natural Gelatin, is a great alternative to sugary store-bought marshmallows. Natural gelatin not only makes fluffy marshmallows but also brings some gut loving benefits to a healthy rocky road party. Nutra Organics Natural Gelatin contains collagen protein and key amino acids for tissue building, repair and gut health.

650g chocolate buttons

200g raw cashews

Natural Gelatin (for the marshmallows)


1. First off, if you want to make this properly from scratch, you’ll need to refer to our homemade marshmallow recipe (HERE). But don’t worry, marshmallows are so easy to make! You’ll just need to factor in the setting time. After you’ve set the marshmallows, let’s jump right into multitasking!

2. Preheat your oven to 180ºC and dry roast your pistachios and cashews for 10 mins or until nicely browned and crunchy - keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!

3. Meanwhile, melt your dark chocolate. We used the doubled boiler method by melting in a heatproof dish over a saucepan of simmering water (the old fashioned way!) but a microwave will also do just fine.

4. Cut your marshmallows into smaller bite-size pieces. For this recipe, we also made a Golden Latte flavoured marshmallow for colour variety, but not necessary.

5. Once your chocolate is melted, add in a pinch of salt and stir through.

6. Place your toasted nuts, marshmallows and whatever else you want to add into a mixing bowl, reserving some for the top. Mix through then tip out onto baking paper. Top with the remaining ingredients and refrigerate until set hard.

Enjoy every nostalgic mouthful!
