Rocky Road from BBC Good Food

I know it's been a while - I'm dieting and this blog makes me want to bake! Baked goods in my house don't last for long when I'm around so it's safer if I just don't!

Happily, I had the opportunity to bake for someone else today! Louis finishes nursery tomorrow so we made a couple of things for him to take in for his teachers, the first being this Rocky Road (or Chocolate Crunch Bar as they like to call it) from the BBC Good Food site.


Cuts into 12.
Ingredients
  • 100g butter , roughly chopped
  • 300g dark chocolate (such as Bournville), broken into squares
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 140g rich tea biscuits , roughly crushed
  • 12 pink marshmallows , quartered (use scissors)
  • 2 x 55g bars Turkish delight , halved and sliced (or use Maltesers, Milky Way or Crunchie bars) [I used Maltesers and Crunchie]

  1. Gently melt the butter, chocolate and syrup in a pan over a low heat, stirring frequently until smooth, then cool for about 10 mins. [It's important to let this cool for minimum 10 minutes otherwise the marshmallow will melt, which is not what you want!]
     
  2. Stir the biscuits and sweets into the pan until well mixed, then pour into a 17cm square tin lined with foil and spread the mixture to roughly level it. Chill until hard, then cut into fingers. 
It was so easy to do - in fact, the hardest thing I think was chopping up the marshmallow because they were so sticky! Smelt gorgeous too.... not entirely sure how they tasted - I did have a little nibble (shhh!) which was goooooooooood! I put some of them in a jar which I wrapped with ribbon and a parcel tag to take in to school tomorrow. Hopefully they taste as nice as it looked, and I hope the rest of my household eat the remains that we have here - it keeps calling me!

Apparently, if you freeze the marshmallows first, they're much easier to chop!
