Chances are that after Easter is over you will be left with tons of eggs, cute bunnies and an assortment of chocolate farm animals. I usually store all this leftover chocolate on a high shelf and try to dole it out to the children in a sensible manner until they, and I, usually forget about it.
Rather than leave all this chocolate goodness to go dusty, bring it all together and make Rocky Road. Not only will you use up all the leftovers, you will turn them into something glorious that will have everyone sighing with pleasure. What’s more you can involve the kids in this easy no-bake recipe.
Another great thing about Rocky Road is you can add pretty much anything you like to customise it. Dried fruit is usually included (raisins or dried cranberries etc) or crunchy biscuits or any nuts that take your fancy.
It’s also best to add a little good quality 60% cocoa chocolate in the mix if you can. This recipe makes a lot of Rocky Road. You can easily halve it and use muffin cups to make individual portions.
here's what you'll need...
- 400g leftover Easter chocolate
- 150g 60% cooking chocolate + 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp golden syrup (or honey)
- 125g mixed salted nuts (I used cashews but any will work)
- 125g Easter marshmallows
- 125g Maltesers, Creme eggs, mini eggs etc.
- 65g unsalted butter, cubed
