  1. The kids spotted a packet of edible eyes which I’d bought in Poundland recently and although they were meant for Halloween we decided we couldn’t wait and put them on Rocky Road instead.

    I’ve made Rocky Road a few times now and played with the measurements and chocolate ratio and I now feel I’ve cracked the perfect mix.

    Ingredients:

    200g Digestive Biscuits
    125g Unsalted Butter
    250g Chocolate (I used 150g Milk Chocolate and 100g Plain Chocolate)
    1 – 2 tbsp Golden Syrup
    70g Mini Marshmallows
    70g Raisins

    Method:

    Line an 18” square tin or similar sized rectangular tin with cling film

    Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of boiling water. If you choose to do the latter then make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl

    Bash the biscuits up into small prices

    Once the chocolate has cooled a little, add the broken biscuits, marshmallows and raisins

    Put the mix in the tin and ensure there are no gaps before adding any sprinkles or edible eyes on top

    Put the Rocky Road in the fridge for a couple of hours and then get the kettle on and don’t tell the kids it’s ready to eat.  Enjoy!
