Marshmallows, glace cherries and caramel popcorn coated in chocolate. What’s not to love about a good Rocky Road Recipe? This classic treat can be made with white chocolate too, like in this White Chocolate & Raspberry Rocky Road recipe.
3. Honey joys
These little treats are so aptly named! Crunchy golden patty pans of joy, it's not a kids' party without a tray of Honey Joys. Complete your spread with a few of these snacks, try sprinkling them with hundreds and thousands for a colourful confetti look.
4. Hedgehog slice
You can’t go wrong with Hedgehog Slice: crumbly shortbread, chewy lollies and chocolate icing. Yum! This hedgehog slice has a touch of popping candy added in for a crackly surprise that’s super fun for the kids.
5. Candy bark
Candy bark is a classic treat and it’s so easy. The Copha gives the chocolate a nice shine without needing to temper it. This Popping Candy Bark has only three ingredients, one of them being a bit of rainbow coloured popping candy sprinkled over the top.
6. Birthday cake
This cake recipe covered in a rainbow of M&Ms is what birthday dreams are made of. Make this Rainbow Teacake with Vanilla Frosting and M&Ms in rainbow colours or theme it according to the birthday kids' favourite colours.
