Christmas Rocky Road 2020. -Make ahead tip: Make the Rocky Road and refrigerate to set. Don’t add the confectioner’s  sugar yet, but cut into bars, then store in an airtight container in a  cool place for up to 1 week

Ingredients

  • 100g butter , cut into cubes, plus extra for the tin
  • 250g Christmas biscuits , such as shortbread or chocolate biscuits

  • 75g Christmas sweets (candy canes, marshmallows or jelly sweets)
  • 400g milk or plain chocolate (or a mixture of both), chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Butter and line a 20cm square tin, or use a 20cm square silicone mould. Break the biscuits into pieces – they need to be no smaller than a pea, but not too chunky or your rocky road won’t hold together. 

  • STEP 2

    Halve any larger nuts either by snapping them or carefully cutting with a knife, then combine them with the biscuits. Halve any large pieces of dried fruit and chop or snap sweets into smaller pieces, then add these to the bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Melt 300g of the chocolate, the butter and the golden syrup carefully in a pan set over a low heat, stirring occasionally, then pour this over the biscuit and nut mixture and mix together so the chocolate covers everything.

  • STEP 4

    Tip the mixture into the tin, then level the top – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Melt the remaining chocolate in the microwave in short blasts, or in a heatproof bowl over a small pan of simmering water, then drizzle this over the top and sprinkle with the decorations. Chill for at least 3 hrs or overnight before cutting into squares. Will keep in the fridge for three to four days.

    Notes

    Make ahead tip: Make the Rocky Road and refrigerate to set. Don’t add the confectioner’s  sugar yet, but cut into bars, then store in an airtight container in a  cool place for up to 1 week.
