Hellooo monday! And what a way to start the week...with a completely awesome recipe for Rocky Road! I made these last week to take to into work as we had our annual stocktake, which for anyone who doesn't work in retail, is a long and boring process. So I thought a little something to keep us going would be good.
Until then I had never made rocky road...yes,yes I know how can I have never made it!? Well I wish I had earlier because one, it tastes amazing and you can put anything you like in it...two, it is super simple to do! So if you have never made it and need something sweet to help you get through the week then I suggest you give it a whirl...
- 100g Unsalted Butter
- 300g Chocolate ( I used half milk / plain)
- 2 tbsp Golden Syrup
This is the base for all the other goodies you can add in...this next part of the recipe list is a real rough guide to what I added but by all means get creative a chuck in whatever you want! Any type of biscuits would work, salted pretzels would be awesome or maybe some gummy sweets instead of marshmallows...
- Half a packet of Rich Tea Biscuits
- A Handful of Dried Cranberries (traditionally glace cherries are used but I detest them!)
- One packet of Malteasers / One Crunchie bar
- Roughly 75g of Mini Marshmallows
- Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water along with the butter and the golden syrup. Make sure the bowl isn't touching the water.
- Heat gently until you have a gorgeous pool of molten chocolate.
- Once melted take off the heat and crumble in the biscuits along with the other ingredients.
- Stir until each piece is well coated, if there seems like too much chocolate left then add in a few more ingredients.
- The mix should mostly be all the good things you have put in, you want a bite of everything not just chocolate...
- Tip the mix into a foil lined deep rectangular tin.
- Leave to cool slightly to room temp and then pop in the fridge to solidify.
- Once solid take out and carefully remove from the foil, cut into squares as big as you dare!
- This keeps best in the fridge in an airtight container.
Oooh how good does it look!! And it tastes just as good too, which is why there is now none left and after writing this post I may need to go make some more...have a good week friends! x
