So apparently it’s been snowing outside across the UK today…well everywhere expect above my house. To say I’m devastated would a tremendous under statement, so I’m filling my Sunday creating my own indoor winter snug fest watching Christmas films, drinking tea and mulled wine, and roasting a yummy pork loin.
I’m also adding to the snug by sharing with you my Festive take on Rocky Road. This no bake recipe is a super fun treat to bake with children when you’ve managed to drag them in from the snow, and also doubles up as a perfect edible gift to share with friends and family; simply package it up in some cellophane wrap and tie it with a ribbon.
Makes| 12 squares
Preparation| 1 hour 30 minutes
250 grams dark chocolate
150 grams milk chocolate
175 grams soft unsalted butter
4 tablespoons golden syrup
200 grams ginger biscuits
150 grams brazil nuts
150 grams red glace cherries
125 grams Cake Angels mini marshmallows
Cake Angels 2D cake decorations
Cake Angels Winter Wonderland Sprinkles
4 peppermint Candy Canes
1 tablespoon icing sugar
Line a square tin (20cm x 20cm) tin with parchment paper and set aside.
Chop both the milk and dark chocolate and then put into a pan to melt with the butter and syrup over a gentle heat.
Put the ginger biscuits into a freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin to get a mix of sandy crumbs and larger pieces of biscuits.
Put the Brazil nuts into another freezer bag and also bash them so you get different-sized nut.s
Take the pan off the heat, and add the crushed biscuits and nuts, whole glacé cherries and mini-marshmallows. Fold carefully to coat everything with mixture.
Tip the mixture into the lined tray, smoothing the top as best you can and top with the cake decorations, sprinkles and candy canes
Refrigerate until firm enough to cut, roughly 1½–2 hours. Then take the set block of rocky road out of the lined tray ready to cut.
Push the icing sugar through a small sieve to dust the top of the Rocky Road, then with the long side in front of you, cut into it 6 slices down and 4 across, so that you have 12 squares.
