We’ve been talking about doing a rocky road for a while as we’ve so many random bits that need using up in the cupboards. It’s also simple, fun and apart from melting the chocolate there’s no cooking or baking involved.
200g of assorted biscuits
200g dark chocolate
2-3 tbsp golden syrup
Optional extras such as pretzels, popcorn, dried fruit, nuts (whatever you have!)
18cm square tin lined with baking paper
Makes 12 portions
Start by melting the chocolate, butter and golden syrup. Add a little water into a small pan. Place a glass bowl over the pan and add in the ingredients. Stir until the ingredients have fully melted and there is no lumps. We had some chocolate orange in the cupboard so threw this in as well. Once melted allow to cool, otherwise it will melt your marshmallows when you mix it with the other ingredients.
Meanwhile in a bowl add all your dry ingredients. Use up anything in your cupboards that you think will work. On this occasion we had some pretzels which we broke up slightly, hob nobs and chocolate fingers (crushed into chunks), mini marshmallows and large marshmallows cut in half. We also found some booze soaked sultanas in the cupboard which we drained and added in along with some maple flavoured matchmakers.
Once the chocolate has cooled slightly add it into the other ingredients and stir well. Spoon out the chunky mixture into a baking paper lined tin and put in the fridge to cool for at least two hours.
Once set take it out of the fridge and leave out for half an hour. Turn out the rocky road onto a chopping board and slice into 12 equal chunks.
