Rocky Road

This is a fun & easy recipe to make and perfect for the quarantine as you can use up any biscuits you may have left in the tin!!

I’ve done a vegan (dairy-free) version as usual, although you wouldn’t guess it was if you tasted it!

When I started this blog I said it would be vegan & delicious recipes not healthy lol although you could add dried fruit to the mix!

Ingredients

    125 grams vegan butter or spread (we used Flora)
    300 grams dark chocolate (most dark chocolate over 70% cocoa is naturally vegan but check the packaging first! broken into pieces
    3 tablespoons golden syrup
    300 grams biscuits

(You can use any plain biscuits – Digestives, coconut rings, fruit shortcake or even a combination)

The beauty is you can adapt the recipe & put in anything you like – we added Brazil nuts & popcorn – you can also use dried fruit.

The traditional recipe has Marshmallows, however I couldn’t find any vegan marshmallows as they contain gelatine.

I discovered Dr Oetker Unicorn Confetti though which added some colour! (Checked & it’s suitable for vegans)

METHOD

  • Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a bowl over a saucepan filled shallowly with simmering water (or microwave).
  • Put the biscuits into a freezer bag and then bash them with a rolling pin or mallet. You’re aiming for crumbs and chunks of biscuits. (This was fun – taking out our anger & beating those biscuits lol)
  • Fold the biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan, and mix.

  • Tip into a foil tray (24cm / 9 inch square); flatten as best you can with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle with icing sugar or we sprinkled with Dr Oetker Unicorn sprinkles to finish off with a bit of colour.
  • Refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight.
  • Cut into small slices.
