Ok despite the title, this isn't technically a baking post as no oven is involved. I spent some of yesterday afternoon in the kitchen making Rocky Road as a treat for my parents and their colleagues...
totally going to put them in a sugar coma today!
This would be it before chilling for at least two hours.
Want the recipe?
Of course you do! The one I used comes from the Good to Know website, one of my favourites for quick and easy recipes.
100g/4oz unsalted butter
225g/8oz plain chocolate, broken into pieces
2tbsp golden syrup
2tbsp cocoa powder
2tbsp caster sugar
100g/4oz mixed milk and white chocolate chips
100g/4oz mini marshmallows
225g/8oz ginger biscuits, broken into pieces
Icing sugar to dust
1.Line a 20 cm/8in square cake tin with baking parchment.
2.In a small pan heat the butter, plain chocolate, golden syrup, caster sugar, cocoa powder and stir together with a wooden spoon. Once melted together leave to cool for 10 minutes.
3.In a large bowl place the Maltesers®, milk and white chocolate chip, mini marshmallows, ginger biscuits and bind together with the melted chocolate sauce.
4.Pour into the lined tin and leave to set in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
5.Remove from cake tin and slice into 16 snack-sized rocky road bars.

And how did it look once set?
Well, judge for yourself!
This was seriously simple to make, I highly recommend you give it a go!
I'm going to play around with the ingredients a bit next time and try making substitions,
Vary the type of chocolate used to milk, or white.
You can pretty much use any type of biscuit; rich teas, oreos, cookies, shortbread...
Same for the add ins, use dried fruit, nuts, any kind of sweet/chocolate
I think you can just about let your imagination go wild and get amazing results regardless!
And, as a bonus, here is my Anna Sui dress that I got from the outnet
I just adore it,
not so much this photo though! Mum snapped it on my phone and I wasn't quite ready!
Hope your having a lovely week so far...half way to the weekend!
