rocky road buckini ball (gluten/grain/nut free)


I’ve already revealed my rocky road secret   but for this year’s twist – buckinis. If you’ve been reading my posts recently you will have noticed these little things have come up a fair bit  as I have been trying to avoid nuts and seeds but love to have ‘crunch’ in my food.  Buckini’s are apparently technically a fruit and come from the buckwheat family.  They are gluten free too.

So to make a completely gluten free, nut free rocky road without compromising on crunch or taste I have employed my new friend, buckinis instead of my usual slivered almonds.

  • 500g  dark lindt couverture chocolate ( for DF version use DF chocolate. Cheap chocolate will ruin the rocky road)
  • 1-2 pktmarshmallows (I have just learnt today that Pascalls are ok as wheat glucose syrup is actually GF)
  • 5-6 squares of proper turkish delight cut into small pieces
  • 150g toasted buckinis
  • 1 cup toasted shredded coconut.
  • Note: You can play with the amounts of all non-choc ingredients according to your tastes

Melt choc and mix in the rest but reserve a handful of the buckinis/coconut to sprinkle on top! inside buckini ball

Makes about 1 brownie tins’ worth.

You can then serve in a variety of ways:

  •  brownie pan (line with baking paper first) – then when set cut into logs or squares
  • loaf pans
  • muffin pans
  • in disposable cake tins
  • in disposable cupcake wrappers
