It’s Kieran’s pre-birthday celebrations today, and I’m making him a rocky-road-cake, so here’s a half-tutorial, half-I-can’t-believe-how-much-chocolate-is-in-this-thing-blog. 15 members of his family are coming along, so I’ve kind of double/triple/quadrupled the ingredient quantities, BEHOLD:
Bear in mind this is for 15 people, so this is a LOT of ingredients! Normally 5 chocolate bars, half a bag of marshmallows, and half a bag of digestives are enough for 4 people (or enough for me and Kieran).
So in this mother of all rocky roads, we have:
15 chocolate bars
2 bags of marshmallows
2 packs of digestive biscuits
Now, this ain’t no fancy-schmancy rocky road, so all I put in are marshmallows and biscuits; you can add in any ingredients e.g. raisins/rice crispies/honeycomb etc, but since I love just plain good old fashioned rocky road, and am not a huge fan of the tiny disappointments that are raisins, I just use these.
First I fill a saucepan with a little water, just enough so that it can heat up the bowl without touching it:
Be sure to leave room for a little cat who will come in to investigate the smells and hissing water:
“What doing, hooman?”
Next, break the chocolate up and melt it in the bowl:
Until it looks like this:
Mix them in:
Then do the same with the marshmallows:
When it’s all mixed in, squish it into whatever’s big enough to hold it. It may look a little like crumbled dog poop but it’ll taste A-MA-ZIIINNNGGGGGGGGG
