Rocky Road

Many years ago I collected some sweet recipes on the forum and I made several of them, including coconut ice and also gift wrapped it into jars a few years back, see picture below.

Today I have made a batch of Rocky Road using the recipe from Clare.  I always like to leave a few bits to decorate onto the top, as well as maybe some white chocolate shavings, or this year some stars and pearl balls from Poundland.

So here is the recipe if you fancy giving it a go:

Basic recipe is -
200g choc (milk, plain or mix)
90g butter
2tbsp syrup
100g (tea)biscuits
75g nuts
75g mini marshmallows

You can then vary the last 3 ingredients, just keep to approximate weights.
variations....amaretti biscuits, brazils, cherries, salted peanuts, crumbled Crunchies, pecans, raisins, maltesers...well anything you fancy really.

Melt the first 3 ingredients and stir in the roughly crushed/chopped others bits. Press into a greased 8" square tin and leave to set, I always line with baking paper so that it comes out really easy.  You can then dust with icing sugar and/or edible glitter or drizzle with white chocolate.

Have a Happy Christmas....

Don't forget the craft forum is always available for crafty chat, or any chat really.
