Mmmm the joy of homemade Rocky Road. YUM. And Soooooo easy. My version goes like this –
Melt 250 gm bar of dark chocolate in bowl over boiling water, pour into a bowl which has a handfull of each – mini marshmallows, pistachios, dried cranberries, puffed rice cereal (maybe two of these, I used gluten free), and a pinch of flaked seasalt. (feel free to add what you like though, crushed biscuits and chopped dried apricots or dried cherries are a hit too) Stir, and pour into a 9 x 13 inch tray lined with greased baking paper. Chill. Dust with icing sugar. Cut. Eat. If any remain, save in a tin which you will then open immediately and eat more from. Life is short, just enjoy it!
Chilly winter walk with friends on the beach to look for burried ‘treasure’ (I sneakily hid some sweets/lollies) Any little pirate loves this activity.
