Rocky Road by Alayna Cole
Most of these weights are either a whole or half packet – don’t be too fussy. You just need to make sure you have enough chocolate to cover all of your fillings!
- 125g of Arnott’s Scotch Finger biscuits
- 125g of Marshmallows
- 180g of Cadbury Fry’s Turkish Delight (I buy a share pack)
- 750g of milk cooking chocolate (although I’m sure dark or white would work fine too!)
In a bowl, break the biscuits into sixths, the marshmallows into halves (if you’re using the large size – mini marshmallows can be used whole) and the Turkish delight pieces into halves too. This job is much easier with a helper, so if you have a willing child or a partner who you can trust won’t eat all of the fillings before they make it into the rocky road, now’s the time to use them.
Once your fillings are ready, it’s time to melt the chocolate. You can do this in one of two ways:
(1) Put some water in a pot and place this over low-medium heat. Fill a bowl with your cooking chocolate pieces, and place this bowl on top of the pot (make sure it’s heat resistant – a metal bowl works best for this method). The secondary heat from the simmering water will heat your chocolate. Make sure you stir constantly so that it doesn’t burn – burnt chocolate is impossible to rescue!
(2) Fill a bowl with your cooking chocolate pieces and place it in the microwave (make sure it’s a microwave safe bowl for this method). Nuke it for 30 seconds, and then stir. Then nuke for 10 second intervals, stirring inbetween each. It may sound like a painfully slow process, but I reiterate: burnt chocolate is impossible to rescue!
As soon as the chocolate is entirely melted, place all of your broken filling ingredients into the bowl. Coat them in chocolate and then pour the mixture into a lined slice tray. Refrigerate for about an hour before cutting into pieces. This mixture should make approximately sixteen servings. Enjoy!
