Makes approximately 30 pieces
I’ve posted a recipe for rocky road before, and called it my ultimate rocky road. It is seriously good but this new year I went down a different path. Inspired by a strangely moreish delicacy of chocolate covered gummy bears I discovered in New York five years ago, this rocky road features a layer of gummy bears that make a more fruity, chewy hit in each piece.
These were taste-tested at a party between Christmas and New Year (hence their name) and went down very well, at least I assume they did as every piece disappeared!
- 200g dark chocolate, melted
- 200g milk chocolate, melted
- 100g white chocolate, melted
- 100g butter
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 100g gummy bears
- 100g maltesers
- 100g munchies
- 50g mini marshmallows
- 10 rich tea biscuits, roughly crushed
Step 1: Have your three molten chocolates in separate bowls.
Step 2: Melt together the butter and syrup (I did this in the microwave, but you could do this on the hob) and then split between the dark and milk chocolate and stir until smooth.
Step 3: Line a shallow baking tray (such as a brownie pan or swiss roll tray) with greaseproof paper.
Step 4: Spread the gummy bears across the lined tray. Pour half the dark and half the milk chocolates over the gummy bears.
Step 5: In a bowl combine the crushed biscuits, maltesers, munchies and marshmallows with the remaining dark and milk chocolate. Pour over the gummy bears and chocolate and spread out until even.
Step 6: Use a spoon to drizzle the white chocolate over everything and allow to set (in a cool room or fridge) and then slice into squares (this is best done when not fully set).
I keep these in the fridge, wrapped either in tin foil or in an air tight container.
