Easter Rocky Road

This is a great no bake recipe to make with your kids for Easter – but be beware it has all the sweetness and chocolatyness in the world in it – not for the feint hearted

Ingredients

  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 125g milk chocolate
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 300g ( yes really) candy covered eggs – I used Smarties Eggs
  • 50g mini marshmallows
  • 100g chocolate finger biscuits ( you could use rich tea or digestives but why not add a bit more chocolate!)
  • 25g white chocolate

You need to line a shallow tin 20x20cm-ish with cling film two ways! You will also need a microwave proof bowl and a spatula.

Method

Put the milk and dark chocolate in the bowl with the butter.

Pop in the microwave on half power for 1 minute. Take out, give it all a stir and return for another minute. Stir again and repeat in 30 second bursts until everything has melted together. Don’t be tempted to do this on full microwave power you may over heat the chocolate.

Once melted smooth and glossy add the cocoa powder and golden syrup and stir well again. The mixture needs to cool down for a while now – 10 minutes should do the trick. Stir a little every so often whilst you are waiting making sure you scrape the mixture off the bottom of the bowl.

Whilst the mixture is cooling break the chocolate fingers into smaller bite size pieces.

Add the biscuit pieces and marshmallows to the chocolate mixture and give it another good stir.

Stir in 200g of the candy eggs, keeping the final 100g for the top and pop into your lined tin.

Use the spatula to spread the mixture out – hold onto the edges of the cling film to help do this.

Press the mixture down to try to eliminate any holes hiding underneath.

Put the white chocolate into a disposable piping bag and melt gently on half heat in the microwave in 30 second bursts. Snip a fine hole at the end of the bag and drizzle a random squiggle all over the top of the mixture.

Chop the remaining 100g of the eggs on half (best if a grown up does that bit) and the pop those on the top of the mixture.

Put it all in the fridge for 1 hour to set hard then chop into small squares.
