Easter Rocky Road

This easy treat is a great way of using up left over chocolate (is this a thing?) after the Easter period. They can also be given as alternatives to confectionery eggs. This recipe is a great one to make with kids, as it’s quick & simple and requires no baking.

 

Ingredients – to make 20 squares.

 

For the rocky road

200g dark chocolate

100g milk chocolate

100g mini marshmallows

150g milk chocolate digestive biscuits, (broken)

200g Easter treats (mini eggs/white choccy will do), bashed up.

 

For the topping (optional)

Handful of mini Creme Eggs, cut in half

Handful of mini chocolate bunnies

50g dark chocolate, melted

Water icing

Icing sugar

 

Method

  1. Line a medium rectangle baking tin (around 20 x 30cm) with cling film.
  2. Place broken up biscuits, Easter treats & marshmallows into a large bowl.
  3. Melt the dark & milk chocolate together; microwave or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water
  4. Let the chocolate cool for a minute; so that it doesn’t melt the treats…
  5. Pour the slightly cooled chocolate over the biscuit/marshmallow/treat mix
  6. Stir until everything is well combined.
  7. Spoon mixture into the lined tin, pressing down with a metal spoon.
  8. Place mini Creme Egg halves/bunnies on to the mix & press down so they stick.
  9. Place the rocky road in the fridge, for around an hour, to set.
  10. When the rocky road sets, drizzle over the melted dark chocolate & water icing and return to the fridge for a further 30 minutes.
  11. When the chocolate & water icing have set, dust over the icing sugar.
  12. Slice the chocolatey slab into squares (20 – or 2? We’ll let you choose!)

 

Your rocky road should keep for up to a week (if it lasts that long) if stored in an airtight container, at room temperature.
