Hey my lovelies,
Hope you had a great Easter/ bank holiday weekend! Are you now over run by chocolate? Well I thought about this and on Saturday (before Easter I know but my nephews were down so I wanted to make them something and I can have my nice moments) I made some Rocky Road which I thought would be great to put on here after Easter so you could use up some of that chocolate you now have sitting around. Even though I normally post Lactose free recipes on here, these are made with normal chocolate because even though I love my family, it would have cost a small fortune to buy the milk free chocolate for these!! Plus I bought some super cute micro chocolate eggs from Asda to mix in and sprinkle on top.
I’m sure everyone will know how to make rocky road but hey ho, here is how I made mine….
- 400g chocolate
- 125g butter
- 100g of mini marshmallows
- 200g digestive biscuits
- 1 bag of mini/micro chocolate eggs
Place a pan of water on the hob and bring it to a simmer, place a glass bowl over the top (make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl as your chocolate will burn! and that is really not nice) then place your butter and chocolate in the bowl. Leave it a minute or two then stir until everything has come together.
Turn the heat off and remove the melted chocolate from the pan. Place your biscuits into a bag and with a rolling pin crush them into nice sized chunks (not too small as it will make the end product grainy and horrible). Once you have done this, tip your biscuit chunks in to the chocolate along with the mini marshmallows.
If you have anything else you would like to add to the mixture now is the chance to do it, you could use any chocolate bar you like, maltesers ect. I found these micro chocolate eggs in Asda for £1 so I threw a couple of them in there but saved some to sprinkle on the top. Then mix everything together!
Once everything is coated in chocolate, tip into an edged baking tray which has a sheet of baking paper in it. To make spreading the mixture easier, dip the back of a metal spoon into some warm/hot-ish water, this makes it harder for the chocolate and marshmallows to stick to the spoon.
Now all you have to do is decorate the top of the rocky road slab (I used the rest of the micro chocolate eggs and some sprinkles) but you can use whatever you would like! Then just chill in the fridge over night and cut into squares and serve!
That is it! Super simple but what a way to get rid of your unwanted chocolate and also something you could do to keep the kids entertained over the Easter holidays?
