Crunchy Rocky Road

So easy to make, impossible to resist. Indulgent, moreish and wickedly delicious.  A perfect treat for a party, to feed the hungry kids or even a gift, wrapped in cellophane and tied with a pretty ribbon.  I’ve taken this recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery and adapted it slightly to give it a bit of a twist.  I encourage you to give it a go, use what you have in your cupboard, experiment with different sweets and chocolates to make it your perfect treat.

Rocky Road Ingredients

1.4kg good milk chocolate (Dairy Milk), roughly chopped

4 regular sized Mars bars, roughly chopped

4 regular sized  Crunchy bars, roughly chopped

100g mini marshmallows

180g Maltesers

100g dried apricots, roughly chopped

100g raisins

100g cornflakes

100g chocolate vermicelli

Dairy Milk

Firstly line a 33 x 23 x 5 cm baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Chopped chocolate

Place the chopped milk chocolate in a large bowl (I bang the chocolate in the wrapper against the edge of the kitchen work surface or table to break it up, being careful not to split it) and sit it over a saucepan filled with a couple of inches of barely simmering water.  Make sure the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Leave the chocolate to melt slowly, stirring occasionally.

Place the cornflakes, Maltesers and mini marshmallows into a large mixing bowl.

Roughly chop the apricots, raisins, Mars and Crunchy bars. Add these to the other ingredients in the large mixing bowl and then gently pour in the melted chocolate. Slowly mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until everything is covered in chocolate and the dry ingredients are evenly dispersed.

Raisins and apricots

Crunchy and Mars bars

Press this mixture into the prepared baking tray, using a tablespoon to flatten and compress it.

Sprinkle the chocolate vermicelli all over the top. Leave to cool completely then cover and refrigerate overnight.  Take out of the fridge 30 minutes before cutting into square, bite-size pieces.
