This rocky road recipe is so quick and easy, tastes and looks great, only problem is saving some for anybody else to try! It would make a perfect edible gift this Christmas and especially as a thank you gift for teachers.
250 g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
400 g chocolate
100 g golden syrup
250 g digestive biscuits
200 g smarties (Red and Green to make it festive)
1 large handful of marshmallows
1 handful of chocolate biscuits
icing sugar for dusting
1 - Grease and line a cake tin (roughly 20cm x 25cm). Half-fill a medium pan with boiling water and simmer over a low heat. Place a heatproof bowl over the pan of simmering water and melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup together, stirring well
2 - Once the mixture is smooth, wrap the digestive biscuits in a clean tea towel and bash with a rolling pin into rough pieces, then add to the mixture. Add the rest of your fillings, and marshmallows.
3 - Mix everything together until well combined then pour the mixture into the lined tin. Push in a few chocolate biscuits. Pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until set. Once firm, remove from the fridge, carefully remove from the tin and finish with a dusting of icing sugar. Cut into squares and give to friends and family if you can resist not eating them all yourself first.
