There’s a long road to travel yet

Tomorrow marks the first day of study month – yes, that means all of my lectures are over already. Where did all that time and money go? Having made out my study timetable..(eek), I decided that a few study snacks wouldn’t go astray either. Here is my  take on Rocky Road. It’s not traditional rocky road though I suppose as I’ve added Rice Krispies, but feel that they’re slightly less fattening than so much biscuit – if you want to leave them out, feel free. This is a perfect recipe to bring along to a party or on a road trip and is brilliant for using up scraps of chocolate and sweets you’ve got left around in your cupboards. Again, I still haven’t got a camera. Mine was sadly too shook to repair so I’m on the hunt for another – if anyone can recommend a good one please do!

Right, you need:

200g chocolate (I like half plain, half milk)
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 packet of digestive biscuits (and/or some rice krispies either if you like)
2 handful salted peanuts
100g butter
This actually couldn’t be simpler. Melt your chocolate, syrup and butter together until all is combined. While it’s melting, smash up your biscuits into bite-sized pieces. You don’t want them to be too small or into tiny crumbs. If your marshmallows aren’t mini ones, crop them into small squares. The idea is when someone bites in, they’ll get a bit of everything in one taste so if the marshmallow is too big, it’ll take over. 
Once the chocolate is melted, add your biscuit pieces, marshmallows and nuts into it and mix. That is basically the whole recipe. You don’t have to stop there though, you could add pieces of honeycomb, cherries or even fizzy candy if you wanted to. Some people like to have more chocolate than biscuit pieces so the ratios are kind of up to yourself. I like mine to have a thin layer of chocolate and loads of filling though so kept adding rice krispies until I was happy. 
Get out a baking tray and line it with tin foil. Tip in your mixture and even it out with the back of a metal spoon. I like to add a few extra marshmallows on top here and sprinkle lightly with icing sugar. Then, place it in the fridge for 3-4 hours or until full set. Once it’s ready, lift the tin foil up out of the  tray and cut your rocky road into little bars or bite sized pieces. Enjoy with tea in bed with your favourite box set (lucky study month didn’t start today, eh?)
