Rocky road pig out

So Christmas is over… But not the holiday! We are watching films and eating treats like there is no tomorrow (or new year!). I wanted to share one of the best recipes this Christmas. Rocky Road, it’s so easy to make with the kids and big kids love it too. My ingredients change depending on what’s in the larder. Use your yummiest stuff and make it your own classic! Great as a little gift in a jar or left over tin.

You will need:
400 grams of chocolate (I use 50/50 milk and dark)
a tea mug full of mixed salted nuts (yes, salted, trust me on this…)
5 digestive biscuits (I sometimes use rice crispies)
1/2 mug of mini marshmallows
1 mug of sweets (think soft things like fudge. Fruity things work if they are soft enough.)

Melt the chocolate, either in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water or gently in the microwave. Break up the biscuits, roughly chop your other ingredients. Line a small tin with grease proof paper (I use a small square roasting tin from the 99p shop). Poor in the mixture, sprinkle some hundreds and thousands over it if you like and leave it to set in room temperature. Cut into small squares and enjoy!
