Festive Rocky Road

Well, only 2 sleeps to go until the fat, jolly man with a white beard, wearing a red suit appears! This rocky road is perfect for Christmas and also as a gift during the festive season. Just place some coloured tissue paper into a box, pop on the lid, wrap with gorgeous ribbon and a tag.

Wherever you are in the world, whether your Christmas is chilly and snowy or sunny and balmy – have a great one.

Merry Christmas and see you in 2012!



200g crushed biscuits (digestives are good)
50g dried cranberries
Zest 1 orange
200g mini marshmallows
300g dark chocolate
150g butter
Sprinkles/edible glitter to decorate

    1.  Grease and line a tray bake tin with non stick baking paper.
2.  Place biscuits into a re-sealable bag and bash with a rolling pin. You’re aiming  for chunks of biscuit as  well as a bit of dust. Place crushed biscuits into a large bowl with the cranberries, zest and marshmallows.
3.     In a heatproof bowl, melt chocolate and butter until smooth and glossy.
4.     Pour chocolate mixture into biscuit bowl and mix well, do this quickly before chocolate begins to set.
5.     Pour into tray and flatten down using the back of a spoon or the palm of your hand. Sprinkle with sprinkles or edible glitter and place into fridge for a couple of hours.
6.     Remove from fridge and leave to soften for 5-10 minutes, then using sharp knife dipped in hot water, cut into chunks and devour!
