Rocky Road!!

My friend is pregnant and has been craving different things every week. I do wonder, if her excuse is pregnancy, what’s mine!?!?

Anyway she said she really liked the Rocky Road from Starbucks. She took a special trip just to get some and they didn't have any! Since this is a no-bake and it needs to set I wasn't able to help her out right away. But I will store some of this in case of an emergency! 

I choose the recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook (the first book) because it sounded the best packed with all sorts of yummy things!!

This is really a no brainer, take some of your favourite things and cover them in chocolate and you there you have rocky road! This at least gives you a guide line of amounts and what not!

Rocky Road

1.4kg milk chocolate roughly chopped (or broken into squares)
8 regular sized chewy, filled chocolate bars of your choice (snickers, mars, musketeers etc…)
100g marshmallows
180g chocolate-covered malt honeycomb balls (Maltesers/Whoopers)
100g dried apricots, roughly chopped
100g raisins
100g cornflakes
100g chocolate vermicelli (chocolate sprinkles or Jimmy’s)

a 33x23x5cm baking tray (I used my 9x9 silicone square tin and just cut back the amounts of some of the ingredients!)  

  1. Melt the chocolate in your preferred method- either over water or in the microwave.
  2. Put everything else in a large bowl together.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate over everything and stir until everything is evenly dispersed.
  4. Press the mixture into your baking tray using the back of a tablespoon or a rubber spatula.
