MT did ask if there was something wrong with me, and was a bit distraught at how much baking costs. Who knew that cooking was expensive?
Anyway, I am saying I baked but really no oven was involved. And I feel like it was the kind of thing that a mummy would make with a toddler because it involves little skill and nothing dangerous. So it was obviously perfect for me!
I made Rocky Road.
I watched Tanya Burr's rocky road recipe video, whilst I was starving and then for the next two days straight all I could think about was chocolate, and cookies and marshmallows. It didn't help that we had a huge jar of marshmallows on the kitchen windowsill just tempting me. So I knew that I had to make it!
It is so easy to make. If you are a rubbish baker like me, or just want a simple and quick recipe then I definitely recommend this.
350g of Dark Chocolate 250g of Cookies 4 tbs of Golden Syrup 150g of Marshmallows 150g of Butter
Then all you do is melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a pan. Bash up the cookies so that you ave a mixture of crumbs and bigger pieces. Then once the chocolate mixture has melted mix in the biscuits and marshmallows until everything is covered in chocolate. Finally, put in a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Pop in the fridge for two hours and then you have the amazing rocky road! Warning! It is so chocolatey and can be a bit sickly so make sure you cut your pieces quite small. I like to have a piece with a cup of tea, in front of the fire whilst watching TV.
Perfect winter night!
