FOOD: Rocky Road Recipe

When you're after a sweet treat that doesn't take much time to prepare then rocky road is the one for you! We've had lots of visitors coming over to see Isabella recently and there's nothing better than providing a sweet treat and cup of tea. I've made three, yes THREE, batches of this rocky road over the past few weeks, but have mixed it up slightly. It was officially Rocky Road Day (who knew such a day existed) a couple of days ago, that's how I'm justifying it! Personally, this is my favourite version of rocky road but I've also made a dark chocolate and ginger biscuit version. So feel free to create your own version too!
 What you'll need:
3 tbsp Golden Syrup
300g Milk Chocolate, broken into chunks
100g Rich Tea Biscuit, crushed
50g Mini Marshmallows 
50g Butter
75g Malteasers 
Handful of Raisins
 What to do:
1) Place a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water and add the chocolate chunks, butter and golden syrup. Gently melt the mixture, stirring regularly to ensure the chocolate doesn't overheat. If you overheat the chocolate it will split and be ruined, so keep it on a low heat. 

2) Once the chocolate mixture is completely melted take it off the heat and stir in the raisins, crushed biscuits, mini marshmallows and malteasers. 

3) Empty the chocolate mixture into a lined baking tray (that has raised edges) and flatten with the back of a spoon. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours, or until the rocky road is set.

4) Carefully heat a sharp knife with some boiling water and cut up into whichever size squares you would like. Enjoy with a cup of tea.
