Happy Easter everybody! Hope you’re all enjoying the Easter weekend break, though I reckon many of you are revising for your summer exams so probably no time to relax. However, I highly doubt you aren’t stuffing your faces with chocolate right now.
So since its time for chocolates, I’m gonna give you some of mine as well. They’re like Rocky Roads, but with as usual I like to add a little something extra and they taste almost like the Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations so I’m gonna call my ones “Marvellous Rocky Road Creations”! Enjoy!
(Prep/Cooking time: 30 Mins, Difficulty Level: 1 – Super Easy, Cost: £ – Super Cheap)
(Suitable for Vegetarians)
- Dark Chocolate (400g)
- Double Cream (150g)
- Unsalted Butter (50g)
- Jelly Sweets
- Shallow Baking Tray
- x2 Heat Proof Mixing Bowls (Be sure they are heat proof, if not use a normal heat proof ceramic bowl for the chocolate melting part)
- Small Saucepan (Small enough to hold water and a mixing bowl without either of them touching)
- Mallet/Rolling Pin/Fists/Whatever
- (Optional) Parchment/Grease-proof paper
1) Start by throwing some of your biscuits into a freezer bag, place it into a mixing bowl and bash it up until they’re around 20p-50p sizes.
2) Throw in your jelly sweets and marshmallows and roughly mix and combine together.
- If you’re using large marshmallows cut them up into smaller pieces with a pair of scissors. They may clump together because they’re real sticky if you cut them, but should be okay once you get a coating of biscuits crumbs on it. Try to separate the clumps to get an even spread of marshmallows all over.
3) In another mixing bowl, break your chocolate up into 50p sizes.
4) Pour some hot water into your saucepan, place on your hob and bring it to a very light simmer.
5) Place your bowl of chocolate on top of the saucepan, ensuring the bottom of it doesn’t touch the water and the water is not boiling, and slowly melt the chocolate whilst stirring continuously.
6) Throw in your butter and cream and mix into the chocolate until all is well combined.
7) Take the chocolate off the heat, pour in your biscuit mix and mix it all up until everything is well coated in chocolate.
8) Next, you can either lightly grease your baking tray with some butter or cut a piece of grease-proof paper and place it on top of the tray.
9) Pour you chocolate mixture into the tray and spread it out to about a ½ – 1 inch thickness.
- You now have permission to lick the chocolate out the bowl.
10) Cover with cling film and refrigerate for about 1 hour or until set.
11) Once set, take it and cut into individual desired sized pieces.
12) Serve and Enjoy!
- If you find it a bit too rich or having it on its own is a bit boring, someone suggested you can break it up and sprinkle it over ice cream which is a great idea. So also have a go of that as well!
I’ve entered this dish into Fiesta Friday over at The Novice Gardener along with many other wonderful blogs and recipes from other bloggers. So come take a look at the wonderful food that is being served at the party.
