Our Disneyland vacation is sadly over, but I timed it strategically because it's not all sad.... CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

When you're reading this, we should be back in Australia and by 12pm, I can almost guarantee that you will find me pulling boxes of Christmas decorations out of the roof because the Christmas celebrations start now.

Christmas is my favourite time of year. I love the decorating, I love the food, I love getting to spend extra time with family friends, I love the traditions, I love the music, I love the excitement - I love pretty much every single thing about Christmas.

But especially the treats.

This Peppermint Crunch Rocky Road Recipe is one I came up with last Christmas, but one that quickly became a family favourite. It's so easy to make, but the kind of recipe everyone will ask for because it's seriously delicious. 

Even better? It makes the perfect homemade Christmas gift to share with friends, whether they're coming to your house or you're visiting theirs. Simply grab a jar and a pretty Christmas ribbon, fill it with your rocky road, tie it with a bow and you're ready to gift.

But first, let me share the recipe with you! >>

  8. Serve chilled and store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a month.
