Minty Christmas Rocky Road

Nom! I was a bit late baking up some treats for my birthday at work, so seeing as it was practically December and I wanted an excuse to feel festive I knocked up a batch of these. The candy canes on the top were a bit awkward to munch around without needing a filling, but my god was it worth it. Yum! 20181126_155013-e1543504307465.jpg

Cuts into 12 generous portions

Method:

  1. Prepare all of the ingredients (pop the marshmallows in the freezer until you need them, so they keep their shape and don’t melt into a gloop.
  2. Line a 20x20cm tin with baking paper.
  3. Place the chocolate, butter and syrup in a saucepan and melt on a low heat until smooth, stirring constantly.
  4. Set aside 130ml of the chocolatey mixture.
  5. To the pan, Stir in the rich tea pieces, followed by the marshmallows, sultanas, cherries and aero bubbles.
  6. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and press down firmly with a wooden spoon.
  7. Spread the set aside melted chocolatey mixture over the rocky road and use a spatula to even it out.
  8. Arrange the candy canes on the top, and sprinkle the sprinkles over as evenly as possible.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing, or ideally overnight if you’re able to.
  10. Enjoy!
