  • 70g aero mint bubbles
  • 36 Christmas coloured circular sprinkles

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 50g white chocolate buttons.
  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 white buttons on the top to make 12 snowmen with heads and bodies.
  9. Place the set aside square of dark chocolate in a tiny bowl/eggcup and microwave on a low heat until melted.
  10. Use a cocktail stick or a thin paintbrush to dot/paint eyes and a mouth on each of the smaller buttons.
  11. Use a tiny bit of melted chocolate to attach the orange noses.
  12. Next, use 3 dots of chocolate to attach the circular sprinkle ‘buttons’ to the larger white chocolate buttons.
  13. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing, or ideally overnight if you’re able to.
  14. Eat!
