First, prepare the marshmallow by pouring 60mL water into a medium bowl. Sprinkle gelatin evenly over the top of the water, stir together briefly and leave to bloom.

Create a honey syrup by adding honey and water to a saucepan and whisking to combine. Place saucepan onto a high heat and bring to a boil for around 2 minutes or until temperature reaches 116-188 degrees Celsius.
60 mL water, 90 mL honey
With electric beaters in one hand, slowly pour honey syrup into bloomed gelatin while beating to combine. Beat for 8 minutes, slowly increasing the speed. While beating, add in the rose water.
2 teaspoon rose water
Once the mixture is white and fluffy, pour into the pre-prepared loaf tin. Place tin in freezer for 1 hour to set.
Once the marshmallow is set, remove from the freezer and use a sharp knife, dusted in tapioca starch, to cut into small cubes. Dust each cube in tapioca starch and store in an airtight contain, between layers of baking paper to prevent sticking.
Next it is time to melt the dark chocolate. Add a saucepan filled ⅓ full of water. Place the saucepan onto the stovetop and bring to a medium heat. Top the saucepan with a heatproof bowl. Break up the dark chocolate into chunks and place into bowl. Stir occasionally to melt evenly.

Once the chocolate is melted, set aside for 5 minutes to bring the temperature down.
Add the toasted coconut, pistachio, dried cranberries and cubed marshmallow to a bowl and stir to combine. Top with melted chocolate, mixing through quickly.
⅓ cup shredded coconut, ⅓ cup pistachio, ⅓ cup dried cranberries
Pour out into baking paper lined slice tin and spread out evenly. Top with dried rose petals if desired. Place into fridge to set for approximately 1 hour. Once completely set, remove from the fridge and use a sharp knife to slice into pieces. Place rocky road pieces into an airtight container and return to the fridge until ready to eat.
