Cardamom Rocky Road

Cardamom Rocky Road

By Ian Hempill - Herbie's Spices

This decadent version of the rocky road was created for Herbie’s 18th birthday party. Filled with pistachios, macadamias, Turkish delight and cardamom-scented chocolate, then topped with a layer of Herbie’s magical spice dust, it is the ultimate indulgence and brings back many memories of the celebration when we make it!
