Christmas Gift Idea: Rocky Road Recipe
Christmas is a wonderful time of year with all the giving, receiving, family, friends, and copious amounts of ridiculously delicious food. It can also get a tad expensive, and the thought of what-gift-to-give-who can get a little tiresome. Making your own batch of Rocky Road, packaging it beautifully and finishing it off with a thoughtful card can really make the perfect gift. It is also cheap, made with love, and a little tip – you’d be wise to make two batches.
