Easter Egg Rocky Road

Did you know that the difference between a rocky road and a tiffin is a tiffin doesn’t have marshmallows in it. So if you are a little short on marshmallows for your rocky road just make a tiffin instead!

At times when ingredients are a little low sometimes you need to make the best out of what you have. Here is my Easter Egg Rocky Road for you to enjoy!

You will need:

  • 150g Biscuits (I used oaty ones this time)
  • 100g Mini Marshmallows
  • 150g Dark Chocolate
  • 120g Butter
  • 2tbsp Clear Honey
  • 100g Mini Eggs
  • 2 ½ Small Easter Eggs plus the treats found inside ( if you use larger eggs you won’t need as many)
  • 3 Cream Eggs cut in half.

Method:

  • Put the marshmallows in the fridge, by refrigerating these will help prevent them melting if your chocolate is too hot.
  • Melt the dark chocolate, butter and honey together in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water on a low heat.

Tip:

  • It is important not to heat the chocolate, butter and honey too high or it will melt the marshmallows when they are added.

 

  • Once melted remove from the heat and stir well so it is well blended.
  • Allow to stand and cool for at least 5mins or until the bowl is just warm to touch.
  • Break the biscuits into small chunks. I snap the biscuits in half then break each half into 3 pieces.
  • Add the broken biscuits, marshmallows and mini eggs to the melted chocolate mixture, stir until well covered in the chocolate.
  • Transfer into the small Easter egg shells.
  • Decorate each one with half a cream egg and the treats that came with the eggs. Mine had Malteser bars, Freddo frogs and Areo balls.
  • Pop in the fridge to set.
