Firstly, I just wanted to say that this is my eighth blog post this year which means I’ve written as many blogs posts in the eight days of January as I did in the entirety of 2014. I was an awful blogger in 2014 but I’m really enjoying blogging in 2015!
So without further ado, today I made rocky road with my sister. I said in the beginning that I might do some ‘how to’s so I thought I’d share the recipe, because it makes damn good rocky road if I do say so myself.
200g chocolate (I used Sainsburys own milk cooking chocolate)
2 tbsp golden syrup
200g Digestive biscuits (or biscuits of your choice)
another other fillings you want in your rocky road, I included glacier cherries
Step 1: Measure out the chocolate. Melt it in the microwave, cooking in 30 second bursts until it has a few small lumps. Stir until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Measure out the margarine into a separate bowl. Add the golden syrup and then melt in the microwave for two minutes, regularly checking and stirring. Pour the chocolate into the margarine and stir until mixed.
Step 2: Measure out your biscuits. If you want to be a rebel, measure 201g and forget to tie your shoelaces.
Step 3: Put your measured biscuits inside a plastic bag (or two, in case one bursts) and bash them until they’re in small chunks or crumbs, depending on how crunchy you want your rocky road to be.
Step 4: Make sure you’re listening to some banging tunes. 5 Seconds of Summer aren’t compulsory but highly recommended (rocky road doesn’t taste quite the same without it if you’re not belting out ‘Good Girls’, if I’m honest).
Step 5: Change the focus on your camera and make sure you have a refreshing beverage. I’m not sponsored by coke but I’d like to be. I’m obsessed.
Step 6: Add your bullied biscuits to the chocolate, margarine and syrup mix, stirring them until they’re completed coated.
Step 7: Measure out the marshmallows and add anything else you want to include in your rocky road. Mix it all together until it’s all coated in the chocolate mix.
Step 8: Eat at least half a packet of glacier cherries because they’re absolutely delicious.
Step 9: Line the container with grease proof paper. This is easier than it looks but if you have a sister that you can make do it for you, it’s convenient because you can take photos.
Step 10: Pour the mixture into the tray and use a spatula to spread and even it out. Unless you don’t want spread out even rocky road. Whatever floats your boat, man. If you want to make the top look a bit neater, melt some more chocolate and spread it across the top.
Step 11: Remember to wash up and clean the kitchen to keep your mum happy.
Step 12: Put the tray of rocky road in the fridge until it’s set. Take out and slice or pick up the whole thing and take a giant bite, if you’re feeling particularly rebellious.
I don’t have any pictures of my finished rocky road because it is setting as I type, but I’ll let you know how great it is in tomorrow’s post.
Are the any other how to’s you’d like to see? I highly recommend rocky road – it’s really easy and it’s really good.
