When planning friday posts Ben asked for rocky road to be one as it was his favourite, and of course, he gets to eat it all after I've photographed it! As I child I remember always requesting a rocky road as my treat from the bakers, and there is just something about freshly made tray bakes which make me feel like a child again. I made a large batch however you can half this recipe easily.
250 grams of butter
600 grams of good quality dark (or milk) chocolate of your choice
6 tablespoons of golden syrup
400 grams of rich tea biscuits or digestives
200 grams of mini marshmallows
Icing sugar for dusting
Break your chocolate into pieces and melt with the butter and golden syrup in a pan over a medium heat until completely combined and smooth.
Next, pop all your biscuits into a freezer bag, I find wrapping in a tea towel too avoids mess, and break them up into a mixture of chunks and crumbs with a rolling pin. The biscuits do add texture, but also taste so I would recommend buying ones that you personally like, in my case I used chocolate digestives.
After your biscuits are all bashed up, measure out your 200g of mini marshmallows and fold both ingredients into the smooth chocolate mixture to create the rocky road mix.
Pour your mixture into a lined tin, I used a large square one, but you can tailor the amount of ingredients to the size of your tin. Then refrigerate your rocky road for a minimum of 1-2 hours or overnight, it would be the perfect thing to make around lunch time so it is ready for a treat after dinner.
Dust with icing sugar to serve and enjoy.
Let me know your favourite tray bake!
