This decadent version of rocky road was created for Herbie’s 18th birthday party. Filled with pistachios, macadamias, turkish delight and cardamom scented chocolate, then topped with a layer of Herbie’s magical spice dust, it is the ultimate indulgence.


Will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks in an airtight container.

  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 200g dark (70%) chocolate
  • ¼ tsp Herbie’s Spices Ground Cardamom
  • 125g pistachios (unsalted, unshelled), roughly chopped
  • 100g macadamias (unsalted), roughly chopped
  • 200g good quality turkish delight (rose, orange blossom, mint or a combination), cut into 1cm pieces
  • 2 tsp Herbie’s Spices Spice Dust

  1. Break chocolate into small pieces and place in a glass bow with cardamoml.
  2. Set the bowl over a saucepan a third filled with water and turn to high heat. Bring water to the boil then turn off, allowing residual heat to melt the chocolate. Stir with a spatula for even melting.
  3. Prepare a 20cm square cake tin by lining with baking parchment.
  4. When chocolate is melted, stir through the nuts and turkish delight until well combined.
  5. Pour into prepared tin and refrigerate for 4 hours until firm. Cut into desired size pieces.
  6. Using a small sieve, dust the rocky road with spice dust before serving.
