February 24, 2008: Rocky-ish road

My chocolate clusters went square this week - instead of dropping my fruit, nut and chocolate mixture into little mounds, I pressed it into the bottom of a foil-lined loaf pan. In designing this flavour combination, I took inspiration from rocky road - dried cherries, Turkish delight, roasted hazelnuts, coconut and rice bubbles. Marshmallows are noticeably absent, I know - I'm really not into them.

These were good, but not as great as I'd hoped. The cherries were deliciously sour, but they overwhelmed the Turkish delight and smoky hazelnuts. Still, it'll be no chore finishing off the block!
